It was nice and the food was very good ,also hot when served. The guy that was busting our table was a lot more attentive than the waitress, but overall the experience was good. I guess since this was our first visit we weren't as popular as some of the other patrons.

Such a great night out with good friends! We were celebrating a recent promotion and the staff went above & beyond in making sure that we were well taken care of. The staff was amazing and the food was even better! Would recommend it all... our starters (Arancini / Toasted Ravs...best around.../ and that Eggplant, yum!!!) I had the Sausage Rigatoni as my main after craving classic Italian pasta and it did not let me down. We ended up getting surprised with a slice of their house-made chocolate cake and it was a little slice of heaven. Can’t wait to go back already!

The toasted ravioli was a great starter. The garlic Sicilian dip was a great addition to the bread. I highly recommend the Seafood Suzanne for an entree. The wait staff are phenomenal at giving advice about the menu and giving recommendations. The wine list is quite extensive with good, fair-priced wines.

For someone who isn’t much of a pasta person, this is the one place I come to and look forward to eating pasta. And cannot forget to mention the toasted raviolis are really that great!

We made reservations for my birthday and were seated within 15 minutes of our reservation. The coat check person was friendly. There were 4 people in our party and were hoping for a quiet location to have a nice conversation but were sat by a very loud group of women who did not care about anyone else in the room. At one point a private party in the back shut the doors because of the noise level.

I am usually impressed with the quality of food, however, the lobster spaghetti special was nothing great and I was rather disappointed in the cost for such a dish! Overall we had a nice time but I probably won't go back on a Saturday night again, and not for a while.

I really appreciated the old school service. Too many restaurants allow everyone to be too casual. The service here was excellent great wine service with cloth and proper pour order, not rushing through the meal and taking coats at the door. Our food was outstanding both services and regular menu items. Our waiter was knowledgeable of the menu and able to make recommendations.
I highly recommend this restaurant for a special night out or just a great Italian meal.

The Restaurant was amazing! Food is always on point and delicious!

Unfortunately the waiter made the experience less than enjoyable. It felt like by the end Tomas treated us like we were an inconvenience if anything.
We will be back but if he is our waiter, we’ll request someone else.

We had a 6:30 reservation, we arrived around 6:40 and our table still was not ready. The female hostess was - meh - in my opinion. That started off on a off note. Our server Fa'Me"sp? was professiona, knowledgeable of the menu. What was lacking with the hostess, was made up for by once again, AWESOME food! I had my all time favorite, which is the T-Ravs or for non St. Louisians Toasted Ravioli, the best I have eaten! And yes, even though we were celebrating a birthday I still ordered a piece of Carrot Cake to go, because it is that GOOD! The older gentlemen that normally is at the Check in station was courteous and came and checked on us after we were seated and our food was served.

The veal is outstanding, and so is the lobster and shrimp pasta. The toasted ravioli is original.
The service is great. and the ambiance is quaint.
Save room for the tiramisu or the cannoli.
Enjoy a great meal.
