I had the house specialty ravioli and it was fantastic. Sadly, the owners of this small house have done nothing to dampen the ambient noise. Therefore, it is very difficult to have a conversation if the restaurant is full.

The evening was a bit disappointing to us. We brought friends who had never been here before. We felt rushed to order, rushed to complete salads, and rushed to pay when we didn’t order dessert. Disappointing. They were very busy and very loud. At least don’t rush us.

First, let us extend our appreciation for providing this important feedback. We learn something from every review, and yours is no exception. It was not our intention to make you feel rushed, and for that we apologize. Our space is limited,and we do stay quite busy (especially on a Saturday night), so turning tables can present a challenge. That said, we can and will strive to improve in this area. Please do visit us again.

This is a great italian restaurant for a romantic lunch or dinner. Weather permitting, seat outside before the building in front in completed, the vie is spectacular. Food portions are good and service is better. Go and chackeit for yourself. Parking is validated and you only pay $6 instead of $16. Lobster Tail Risotto is a must.

Mostly favorable experience. Caesar salad came out w/o croutons as requested in about 20 seconds. Had a generous amount of dressing, as I like it. Some would say too much. Closer to side salad in size but priced accordingly. A great Italian red glass for $10. Tagliatelle verde a la Bolognese was probably the best bolognese I have ever had. And I have had a lot. The only problem was the staff was intent on scooping up my plates before I was finished. I am not a slow eater. I felt rushed. I could not tell if they were just trying to be attentive or if they were trying to turn over the table quickly. It marred an otherwise delightful dining experience.

Food was very good and promptly served. Service was fast despite the restaurant being full.

The restaurant seems to be a converted old home which adds to its character.

Had a reservation for 6 pm but did not get seated until 6:35 which is pretty disappointing as we had to go to a concert after dinner so our dinner was a bit rushed. Food was great but service was rushed and not all that personable. Quaint place but it was very hot due to the number of people there and lack of good air conditioning. Maybe better in the fall when you can sit outside? doubt we will go back. Too many other restaurants to try.
