Consistently Good Italian
I'm italian and recommend this spot to anyone in the area who has yet to try it. Very authentic food. We try to go at least once a month. It's hard to stay away. Bucatini and the gnocchi are our faves. Try the lentil soup or filet mignon meatball appetizers.

A Gem of a dining experience.
This gem of restaurant has the feel of family. The Owner Chef and his lovely wife have created an atmosphere and dining experience that you will want to return to time and again. It is tiny and the noise level is lively but you feel like you are in a room filled with friends who share your love of a good meal and a will pared wine. Enjoy.

We were a group of 6 and all
We were a group of 6 and all enjoyed our meals. Our only bad comment were the chairs. Very uncomfortable. Next time I'm bringing a large pillow to lean against.

a good surprise
I don't go to Italian restaurants often because I am a carb-hating vegetarian. But I had a great meal here, with the grilled romaine salad and a side of cannellini beans (which I usually find boring, but these were subtle and delicious, cooked from dried beans). And how many places do you get to meet and chat with the chef? And have your first limoncello? What a great find.

What an Improvement
My wife and I first went here probably two months after it opened and were not impressed. Last week we went back, this time with a coupon. What an improvement in this restaurant. There were three of us. The salads were exceptional, the entrees were delicious and the desserts were outstanding. We went on a Wednesday evening, so the restaurant was not crowded, but weekends are a different story. I complimented the chef as we were leaving and told him that we would definitely return, this time coupon or not.

This little trattoria has been open a few years but I just got around to trying it. That was a mistake. I'll be back a lot.

Never disappointed. I would
Never disappointed. I would come back solely for the grilled romaine salad, but the meals have been fantastic. My mouth stills waters at the thought of the swordfish with lemon and capers.

Amazing yet hidden
This amazing little Roman / Italian restaurant is shares a building with a commercial pizza place. Even walking into the first floor bar/lounge, you would never expect the delightful restaurant down a short staircase. The space is nice yet casual; the perfect place for a grown up evening out. The staff is relaxed yet very knowledgeable. I cannot wait for the next date night to go here again! And yes, the food is amazingly delicious!

Gem in Montgomery County
This tiny restaurant has wonderful food and a friendly atmosphere which makes this restaurant very popular with the locals in Olney. I've had the tuna steak a couple of times and loved it! Because of its size and popularity the noise level is a little high at times.
