The ambiance, the greeting, and the scenery was even sweet. But that's where it stopped. My wife and I had been greeted with the owner and his wife. Our server only seems to want to mumble and not even stand next to us. With all...More

Met another couple for lunch on a first visit for each of us. The pasta were consistently favorites. The lasagna was good but lower rated. I felt my Pomodoro sauce was very Italian. Food prices feel slightly high. I consider the wine prices unacceptably high...More

Having spent years traveling in Italy for vacations, this restaurant comes closest to the full Italian Osteria experience. First there's Gino - you'll meet him - just like in Italy. Then there's the crowded table and live music in the corner. But the food has...More
