Do not eat here!!!! The reviews are not accurate. This was a he worst meal ever. The only good thing was the wine we had! The sever didn’t make us pay but don’t waste your time because the online menu doesn’t match what they give you. Meatballs were raw, eggplant was oily and ravioli was not right! Disgusting food!!!

The family and I spent the weekend in Cleveland and wanted to have some good Italian food without breaking the bank. First of all, you have to really search for this place as it sits back away from the street on the side of a building.(there's a sign placed on the sidewalk pointing to the restaurant) Upon entering, there was nobody at the desk to seat anyone. We weren't sure if we were at the right place. I thought the decor was interesting. There was only one server working and she looked unprofessional for the style of the establishment. (Jeans and t shirt) Not a very large beer list and the wine was not good. Three of us four did not enjoy our meal but we ate it anyway as they seemed to be in a hurry to leave (even though they did not close for another hour or so.) Although it was inexpensive, remember, you usually get what you pay for.

This is categorically the best authentic Italian restaurant in Cleveland. The food is outstanding, the portions enormous, and the price modest. I don't normally write reviews, however was compelled to as every was superlative-- even the decor is similar to "Old Hollywood"... so impressed.
