Went there with my wife to celebrate our 16th Wedding anniversary. I had requested a High Hat with Champagne at Tableside, and candles on the table. They did not disappoint at all. They had the table set perfectly with the Champagne and candles. Our waiter was fantastic, and treated us like we were Royalty. Food was absolutely fantastic as well. Prices were very reasonable.

Great, traditional Italian Food; freshly prepared, and reasonably priced. Good variety of regular pastas, seafood, chicken and beef. Great wine and cocktail selection; and nice variety of appetizers if you want something a bit lighter.

The lunch special was an amazing value and chef quality deliciousness!
The service was impeccable and the bread they give you with olive oil for the table was a meal in itself.
I had a chicken dish which was similar to a piccata with fresh spinach and a homemade ravioli that had an amazing light marinara on top.
We will be back very soon! Five stars all the way around.

In side room, which was quiet. Table was too large for the 5 of us. Openings in the main dining room, so not sure if we were placed in the back room because we indicated the occasion was for a birthday.

Food is delicious and menu is varied but clearly an Italian vibe. The snapper siciliano is wonderful and a large portion with fresh garlicky sautéed green beans
They are very accommodating with modifications to the dishes. Fun lively atmosphere, excellent service and great drinks.

We went to celebrate a birthday. We ordered some Lobster Bisque and it was amazing. I was given the chance to try the tomato basil someone in my group ordered. It was stellar! I had the lasagna which frankly was one of the best I've ever had. The ambiance is warm and inviting. Elegant and calm but never overbearing with beautiful murals and lovely decor. It was a great experience!

Collum, Doug and the gang always do a great job. Food is top notch and service is great. Just wish they had a better top shelf bourbon selection.
