    Excellent, fun, friendly, charming, authentic Italian restaurant in the middle of Dilworth. One of those hidden gems that you’re so glad is in your neighborhood.

    Nice night to get out with some friends who had never been to this restaurant before. We had a variety of dishes including caprese, calamari appetizer, salads, gnocchi, amatriciana pasta, veal and pasta with clams sauce and all was stellar! The pasta with clams could have had just a bit more flavor and the marscapone cheesecake did not have a ton of flavor but was decent. Great service all around and nice environment. The only complaint was that there were a few too many tables crammed into the space for it to super comfortable. Nice Italian place that is not too "americanized" :). Will be back to try other dishes.

    I had high expectations for this restaurant when I noticed I had to make a reservation & my card would be charged $100($20 per person)if I canceled less than 24hrs notice or did not show for reservation.First off we ordered 3 appetizers & received no plates.After using napkins we finally found a waitress to deliver plates.Staff stood back 2 tables literally watching every move to take plates.They took the plates we just asked for that were not used.They tried to take plates with food still on them not asking first.So we had to ask for more plates.Not only did we want extra plates for the appetizers but also to sample other people’s food.We all ordered something different.The bread had an olive oil idk black oil looked like soy sauce and so we had to get new plates since they took the extras for the appetizers Which they took again so had to get more plates for our sample plates with the meal.Onto the food.My husband’s lobster which was very hyped by the waiter when asked if you’ve never eaten here what do you order.It was a special.but was overcooked.You would’t know the order was bad as my husband literally starved all day to eat big here so he ate everything.My lasagna was different.Now the salmon&chicken Parmesan was very good others ordered.Our seating was very cramped.Maybe the table got moved slightly but half of the guests were very tight where the other side could have been moved out to accommodate more room.The prices were not updated on the website.They were very reasonable on the website.The price of 1 entry was $8 more from the website menu.our Waitress was nice but a bit chatty.Overall not impressed &our friends said nothing but good things.It was my daughters birthday.on the reservation I stated this was our first visit & I didn’t know if they offered a dessert.After leaving &my daughter was out of earshot talking to the waitress she gave a togo dessert for her which was nice. Overpriced and unhappy won’t return.

    Not what we expected . Bad wine sold like premium and food very basic , nothing especial. Olive Garden is better and that’s a lot to say

    Celebrated my wedding anniversary at the restaurant. Perfect place to celebrate an event. Attentive service, delicious food that was piping temperature hot plus we received delicious champagne to toast our special day. Planning on a return visit.

    Our favorite place for special occasions. Celebrated our 25th anniversary with a bottle of wine. Can't go wrong with the specials and the cannoli or any dessert for that matter is always amazing.
