The food is excellent and the staff was great. I was treated like an old friend. Olive oil and fresh bread to start with and the salad couldn't get more fresh. Definitely make a reservation or your in for a wait.

It is difficult to get a reservation because so many people enjoy it. It may be my favorite lasagna on this planet (including Italy). The atmosphere of up north, glen lake, cozy setting, and friendly staff makes it top notch.

Wonderful dining with a nice variety of Italian offerings. Very large portions so be prepared to take leftovers home. Located at Glen Lake and very casual surroundings, but a fine dining menu and food preparation.

There were kids there when we went, menu options that would appeal, and yet j wouldn't call it a family dining place.
