Gianni always serves exceptional food. It feels like you are returning to a relative's home for dinner. The service is excellent. Gianni and Melanie are wonderful hosts.

We were there for the Guide Dog fund raiser which was wonderful. I found that the servings were small for the prices that were charged. Another deterrent was that the restaurant was extremely loud. It was difficult to carry on a conversation with my friends.

Consistently great. Very friendly staff and ownership. Always a great experience. Hesitant to give such rave reviews ... want to keep this place a secret for the regulars.

It was our 27th wedding anniversary. Everything was as we expected since we have been here several times. We both ordered the risotto with spinach, mushrooms and sea scallops. It was very tasty. We were expecting 3 scallops but only got 2. Too bad. They were delicious.

We attended a special fundraiser dinner for Valley Humane Society. Food was great. I had Hawaiian swordfish grilled with pesto sauce. Moist and flavorful. Others had ravioli in mushroom cream sauce and rigatoni in tomato cream sauce. Both dishes were very good. Only knock is that the restaurant is pretty animated when full. Might have been exaggerated by the nature of our event. Would definitely go there again.

We were there on Monday night and a charity event, so the menu is not as extensive, and I imagine the noise level was up because of the event. I had a pasta meal, and it was delicious. I'll be back.
