Love this place! Super quaint restaurant with outdoor seating right in the middle of Little Italy. Wonderful place to walk around after dining. Food was sooo good! We had the meatballs and stuffed mushrooms as appetizers and lasagna, spaghetti carbonara, and mushroom ravioli for dinner. Portions were huge! Everything was delicious! Great wine list, too. Highly recommend! Our favorite meal... More

One of the best meals of our vacation from start to finish. The hostess was great and our waiter Jessee was the man. Usually when you order italian you get a ton of just so-so food. The portion size was perfect and the food was great. Whoever does the menu here does an excellent job as we looked at 2... More

This was a very nice surprise with the Eggplant Parmesan delicious and filled with mozzarella cheese and fresh tomatoes. The Tuscany salad was generous and easily shared with another. The location is in the heart of Little Italy and our server was a part of the original family that began the restaurant. There is a down home feeling and the... More

We chose this restaurant based on the review on tripadvisor and the menu. We wanted fettucine alfredo and eggplant parmesan. This had both, and - for lunch - has "small plate" options. We ate on the patio, which was nice. When I went in to use the restroom, I walked through the restaurant and saw that it is decorated like... More

We were walking through Little Italy and stopped here for a drink and appetizer. We snagged a seat on the outside patio and were quickly greeted by our server. We ordered bruschetta, which was absolutely delicious, and then the server said she was bringing out some of their homemade bread, with an olive oil dipping sauce. That turned out to... More

We went about 5:30 and sat on the patio. It was nice being in the heart of the Italian Village and watching the people go by. The food and service was average at best. As expected it was a bit pricey for very average food . I was expecting something more authentic

So we didn't have a reservation and it was Friday night. We went early and were one of the first ones there. Nice selection of Italian wines by the glass. Decent bruschetta, serviceable pizza and pasta and a salad for my vegetarian daughter. Service was good, if not a little hover -y. (we were an early table and I am... More

We went down to Little Italy from the old town and chose this restaurant due to outdoor seating and half price bottle of wine offer. We had to wait for an already empty table to be cleared and set- ok a usual request, however this doesn't normally take 10 mins ( I could have done it myself in less than... More
