Favorite Raleigh spot for authentic Italian food! Always greeted warmly and provided attentive service. Consistently excellent food with great wine selection and daily specials. Make reservations, this place is almost always packed!

We went there for my birthday and it was perfect from start to finish. The chicken fennel lasagna special is not to be missed/

I have Celiac as well as dairy intolerance and a shellfish allergy. I was welcomed in with menus that addressed all of my allergies. Their gluten free/dairy free bread was incredibly delicious. I chose their chicken with spinach which they grilled using olive oil rather...More
