It's fine, really. Somehow though it isn't ever memorable. The service is great, the food is great, I think they need a signature something.

Dropped by for a snack and a glass of wine. The service was great every step of the way, from the greeter to the wait staff. The appetizers were small in size, but tasted ok (Calamari / salami). We decided to order a pizza - pepperoni and prosciutto - and THAT was phenomenal! Light and tasty, just the way they make it in Italy. The house red (Montepulciano) was excellent. All-in-all, we left with a VERY reasonable bill, a great pizza, and a couple of glasses of good wine. Great value, great service. We'll be back.

For another visit but most likely not. Food was for the most part too salty and one would think at an Italian style restaurant the first thing besides a big friendly greeting would be the bread and that took at least 4 requests even tho our waitress said she would be back with the bread! Our party of 7 there for a special occasion was seated in a rather cramped seating arrangement even tho we had reservations and it wasn't that crowded in the main dining room. The food we enjoyed most was the antipasta soft polenta, poached pear salad, spag carbonara, slumi pizza and kids cheese pizza - other food dishes ordered were too salty or just so-so nothing to come back for especially for the prices. The kids cheese pizza at 5 bucks was the best deal! Oh well I like to just say- tried it now won't have to go back when I have a dining experience like this one.

Party of 10. We had 3 children with us and our waiter really accommodated us. We were able to enjoy a full meal without any meltdowns bc hd brought meals in good timing and lots of paper and crayons in between.
Good food- apps meat and cheese plate delicious. Didn't love the bruschetta. My main course was ravioli zucca was really great. Good red wine too!
All in all a great time!

Pretty atmosphere but the food is just basic. Can make better at home. A little too big and cavernous and forget their gluten free pasta. It's bad. Seems their prices are not based on the food but more on paying the rent.
