    My friend and I have been to their other sister restaurant before and it’s delicious. This place is easy to find, right on the corner in a cute building with flowers around it. We booked a reservation ahead of time on open table. We walked in to our reservation at 6:30 and we were seated right away. The ambiance is relaxed, but so cute we felt like we were in Italy! Our server Alberto was phenomenal, attentive, friendly, and happy to serve us. The Burrata appetizer was tasty, I just wish there was a larger portion of the Burrata. I had the chicken limoncello (gluten free) with potatoes and it was so decadent. The chicken was tender and the lemon sauce complimented perfectly. The potatoes were to die for, so crunchy! My friend had the short rib pasta and we scraped the bowl clean. One of the best pasta dishes I’ve ever had. Can’t recommend this place enough! I actually left my credit card and they called to return it to me the following day. I’m so grateful for their excellent attention to detail. Their drinks are strong, be warned! I ordered the sunset drink and my friend opted for a dirty martini, these were some serious contenders! Well worth the price.

    Their entrées are excellent. Shared their calamari would rated a 10. Had a Caesar salad was mediocre best. Service was terrible. we had reservations at 7 PM and ordered our entrées after we received our appetizers. Our entrée did not arrive until after 8 o’clock. We waited and waited.

    What a great dinner in a fun spot that makes you feel as if you just stepped into a cute Italian bistro. Wonderful pepper pasta and it offers a little something for everyone. Romantic and charming!
