Our college student requested we take her to an Italian restaurant during a weekend visit and we’re so happy we landed here. All of our meals were obviously prepared with care and were just perfect. We even ordered an extra meal for her to take back with her. The staff was wonderful and the space was adorable. We’ll definitely be back!!

Don't get too excited, it wasn't a live performance! The food from the specials menu; a panzenella and chicken Milanese gave me the impression that I was in the Italian countryside. Awesome!

Servers were friendly and attentive. Nice warm bread brought to table with a plate of olives. The caprese salad was a good portion and nicely plated. We both had pasta dishes that were very good . The menu had many selections and specials . We did not have dessert. We will definitely return !
