    Appetizers were ok, drinks bourbon and wine were way over priced, entries were really good with homemade noodles and perfectly done just a little overpriced for pasta. Two drinks a appetizers and two entries were 210 plus tip. Service was great. I would go again and this is my honest review.

    Hands down best Italian cuisine spot in Nashville I have been to! They also have a live piano player. The only thing is the lighting can be dim depending were you sit but the service and atmosphere were excellent.

    Treated my mom and I to a fancy dinner on her last visit and this was a meal to remember. Everything, and I mean everything, was delicious and nothing was left behind on our plates. We got their prior to the complimentary valet starting, and due to a misunderstanding on my part I just parked a little ways down the street. The manager was so apologetic and concerned that we weren't parked by the valet. The service was next level and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner!

    We went to this restaurant for Valentine's Day, and they did not like the main course. The food felt bland and was not worth the cost. I felt the dishes were more Americanized, with fewer flavors, as opposed to Italian food. We ordered the rack of lamb and Chicken marsala

    My waiting kind of rub me off the wrong way. It took him 35-45 minutes to take our food order versus the table that just walked in he took their order asap. He catered to them more and it seemed once the customer stated he was a surgeon, all the attention shifted to them. Once our food came out it was very cold. The braised beef tasted frozen. It was not a good Valentine’s Day at all. It costed $110 a person but it was only worth $50 in my opinion. I’ve been to Dubai, Canada, Paris, etc and if I pay $110 pp for a meal, it’s going to be well worth it.

    Food was great but absolutely not worth the price at all for what we got. Went for the valentines day dinner and honestly would've gone somewhere else if we had known that we wouldn't be able to eat from the regular menu. It was extremely expensive.

    Overall food was very good. Crab cakes were the best I’ve ever eaten. Little disappointed in the snapper. Not much flavor. They had a set menu for Valentines. For the price it would have been nice to have had a small dinner salad included.

    The special orecchiette was pretty awful. The pasta was warm and mushy and the sauce they poured over it was hot but bland with only a touch of chopped up sausage $40 for a plate of pasta. . The Milanese was not at all crunchy. The service was good.

    Went for lunch at noon, was one of three tables in entire restaurant. They were disassembling the Christmas tree while we ate lunch. It was freezing inside - didn’t take scarf or jacket off. Ordered meatballs for app - were just warm. Lunch entrees were very average. Disappointed after hearing it was one of the best Italian restaurants in Nash. We might give dinner a shot.

    What an intimate atmosphere away from the tourists scene in the middle of Nashville. Service is beyond top notch. From the moment you walk thru the door you’ll feel like you’re the only one that matters and are right at home. Don’t forget the specialty cocktails and heavens their homemade Limoncello creams bottle me for sale!!
