What a great place. Entertaining an Italian from the Northeast, crosses my fingers, and picked this place. I expected the worst review from him. He thought it was amazing. He got the special seafood plate. I had the lasagna bolognese. Great job, guys. Don’t get scared by a strip center, place is legit.

Great meal, great food, nice wine list. People are terrific - one guy at bar said it's the "only Italian restaurant in Arlington run by Italians." Food was solid. Loved it, will be back. I have a super-high bar on food quality and this one rings the bell.

Of course I’m old school but I still think this is a hidden gem. Millennials, this is not hip by your standards, but try to remember when your parents took you out for a special occasion in the old days. If you were only brought up on fast food and noise, please open your minds to quiet, fine dining and service in a warm, sweet, retro atmosphere. I’m not attacking you as a group, just encouraging you to expand your horizons. This is a wonderful place. They always made my husband and me feel like we were their only patrons, and we drank up the attention! Although my true love regretfully passed away almost two years ago, I went there to celebrate what would have been our 40th anniversary and to remember. I was pampered and treated to a wonderful dessert. When I left, I could magically smell my husband’s cologne! You can’t put a price on that!

THE SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT. PIANO MUSIC WAS A PLUS. CHOCOLATE MARTINI WAS GREAT!
MUSSELS WERE GOOD, ALTHOUGH THE WHITE SAUCE WAS LACKING IN FLAVOR, THE RED WERE GOOD. A LITTLE PRICEY FOR APPITIZER AND THE AMOUNT YOU RECEIVED. HALIBUT WAS GOOD, VEAL SHANK GOOD. THEY SHOULD HAVE HAD ITALIAN BREAD .
OVERALL GOOD

We were in town for a concert and wanted a good meal which was surprisingly hard to find in the area. We were very pleased with our meal... the pasta was delicious and they had a nice variety of wines. Would definitely return if back in the area.

From the Escargot to the Lasagna everything was notably bland. Despite the nice atmosphere and service the food was a complete disaster which is why I could not, in good conscience, recommend this restaurant to anyone.
