Great for pre-theater eventsFood is always tasty and service is always quick and efficient6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFamily diningWe arrived slightly earlier than our scheduled reservation and the outdoor dining area was full, however, they were very accommodating and gave us a table outside. The food was excellent and served hot. Service was outstanding and the view of the city and greenway are inviting. My only complaint would be the noise level if you were dining inside the restaurant. I would definitely recommend to others & plan on visiting again myself!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat lunch spotWent with a group of people from work and we in and out in under an hour.

High noise level inside, patio comfortable.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is always spot on,The food is always spot on, ( a personal fav is the vodka penne sauce. It is delicious and they give you the right amount to cover the pasta. )The wine list has solid selections. As a wine lover, I can be disappointed with selections, not so here.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy food and great location!Came for lunch, and food was delicious. Not too busy, even has outside seating. Service was good, and food came quickly.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat family spot near Freedom ParkWe enjoyed a day of walking and exploring at the park with the family and topped it off with a dinner. The food was great and the family portions allowed us to share and all try new things. Everyone was happy and full.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and serviceThe food was incredible...very authentic and brought to the table piping hot. The service lacked nothing...we asked for recommendations on what to order and were pleased with everything. Although we dined inside, the outside patio looked like the perfect place to enjoy a nice evening. We were celebrating our anniversary and they brought us a complimentary chocolate cupcake with marshmallow filling and it was to die for. Amazing all the way around!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMNice for out of town co-workersI took two different groups here that were visiting from out of town for business meetings and each time got rave reviews from the folks who came. The food is great, the service is wonderful. Never noisy, we were all able to carry on conversations without any issue. I've been here many times for family dinners and I will definitely use this place again for work gatherings.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodAll around excellent every time I go.

However it was a bit noisy and not as romantic as I would have liked it to be for the occasion I was celebrating (Birthday celebration with my Partner). I would have preferred a more romantic ambience.
Don't get me wrong. I will visit your restarant again, but it would be strictly for dining and not for a romatic outing. Even though I loved having the flowers at the table upon our arrival. . . Now that was a big hit.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMsomething for everyoneIn our dining group there was a vegetarian, someone who had already eaten (I know, what was she thinking?), someone with food allergies, and a picky eater. No worries. The server was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the menu and was able to make appropriate recommendations. The portions are large and the food is amazing, fresh, and attractively plated.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Service or the Food?Not sure which was better - the service or the food. Our server, Karen, was attentive and charming.

Really enjoyed lunch.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMSurprising SundayWe were hoping for a good meal to celebrate my husband's birthday. We tried out the family sized entrees and were delighted. Even brought some home...and we had three teens with us! I didn't realize I had ordered the "family size" tuscan salad, so when it came to the table I was a little put back...worried that I wasted a bunch of money on a mistake...We ended up eating ever last piece!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMMama Mia ....

It was my job to find a restaurant that could compare to the traditional Italian we are used to back home. I ordered the pollo bianco and was amazed with how great it tasted, as was the rest of my family with their orders. Had us all saying "wow" when we were finished! I'd highly recommend this place and was definitely worth the drive to Charlotte.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMUnfortunately, and surprisingly,Unfortunately, and surprisingly, when I attempted to order a pizza at noon, I was told there was no pizza dough. ??????3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMJust okI had heard great reviews from friends, but was somewhat disappointing. Food was just ok, the penne vodka was overcooked but edible with lots of salt, the goat cheese and marscapone appetizer was rather good, the pizza was a huge miss- thick crust, sweet sauce- not my idea of brick oven. The kids did not like it. Not worth our drive from Mooresville! On a positive note, Danny, the waiter was excellent and the food came out quick.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place is great but youThis place is great but you might want to pass on the cocktails. They are on the higher side of the price range for booze. You can't beat the menu though and everything I have had there has always been outstanding.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMSalmon was great!!
