Fresh pasta. Excellent meat entrees and other gluten-free options for our friends who look for that. I already loved the place then the wine menu got some more reasonably priced options a while ago.

We had a very nice waitress serving us delicious and fresh Italian food. Servings are very generous but there are half orders available. Restaurant is loud but there are booths and smaller rooms available to help with noise.

I went here for the first time this past week for a business dinner. The atmosphere was active, but not too noisy. It was conducive to having dinner conversations across a six person table. The food quality and flavor was fantastic. Unique flavors were excellent,...More
