Great food in an intimate setting. The place envelops you in an elegant, old world Italian way with a nice atmosphere. We enjoyed the spaghetti and meatballs, veal parm, and salmon. Also a nice bar with a good vibe. High quality without being pretentious.

This restaurant is wonderful for date nights, special occasions, or just treats. The salmon was the best I've ever had in my life. We went for graduation dinner and it honestly could not have been better.

Their recipe for spaghetti is from the owners Italian mother. It is wonderful. All of their pastas are really good-- the best in Oxford.

Had a great meal with family while attending freshman orientation for our son at Ole Miss. Filet was perfect. Our son had the Shrimp and Crawfish Mac and practically licked the bowl. Great, friendly service...but it's Oxford, should I expect anything less? Well done. Looking...More

Sorry but I don't know. It's probably some family recipe. Call the restaurant and ask.
