My friend's husband is part owner. We have come here often for various occasions. I usually only eat vegetarian, chicken or fish. I had the hanger steak for some reason - unbelievable! It was cooked perfect, the sauce was so delicious. My husband got a chicken special and his sauce was equally excellent. Really cute place, nice decor and ambiance.... More

We have been here many times. The service is always pleasant and the food in delicious and very satisfying. We love the pork chop special. The spiedini alla romana is so light and delicious, they offer a marinara or anchovy sauce.

The restaurant has very good food and on certain Friday nights, maybe every, there is entertainment which is nice. The only downfall I see is that the staff is not very pleasant which can make a bad impression to the clientele. All I want to say is that they should smile once in a while... but otherwise, food is very... More

Restaurant is located in a small strip mall and is truly a hidden gem. Friendly people, relaxed atmosphere and great food. A great dining experience.

Went here for lunch with a group of 15. Waitress, Joanie, was very prompt, courteous, called for help when it was needed and kept the pace going straight from the start. No reservations usually needed, plenty of tables and a room for a larger group. I would suggest of course a reservation if one were to go with a group... More

There are two listings for the same place. One with an apostrophe and one without. They both should be combined into one listing. The official listing should include the apostrophe as it is the way it appears on their sign and business cards. Please merge them if it is possible.

From the opening cocktail to the Dolce and coffees everything was unique and delicious. Check their website for the menu. They plan on highlighting different Italian... More

This is a great place, and they know what service is. I had the lobster ravioli, and I ate a load of bread to get every ounce of the sauce. The scotch and wine selection are well stocked. Wished I lived closer to make this a weekly spot to dine and hang out.

Went with coworkers for a dinner. Wait staff was nice and attentive. Atmosphere was relaxing but with some football noise going on at the bar still. Everybody liked their entrées, starters were OK.
