Had dinner here ronight at innkeeper's recommendation. Definitely a good call. Nice decor, we sat on outdoor patio for a beautiful evening. Had the pasta from hell - nicely spiced, especially if you like it a little hot! My partner had spaghetti and meatballs which she rated as excellent. Both food and service very good to excellent. A definite plus recommendation.

A really nice place with great food, atmosphere and fantastic service. Finally went (thought it was too pricey before) and found it a bit higher than other places but well worth it for a special occasion or evening. The food was great and our waiter really did a fantastic job of serving us without being obnoxious. Really you should try it.

I owned an award winning Italian Restaurant for 11 years and am highly critical of Italian Restaurants. I rarely find a restaurant where I love both the food and the service and this one was super!
I was there for a business meeting and we began with a cocktail party. The staff was excellently trained to walk around those talking but also be attentive to those looking for another drink. The anitpasto and appetizers laid out were exceptional. I ordered
BENVENUTI Salad
Poached Pear, Spinach, Gorgonzola, Candied Walnuts, Aged Balsamic, Walnut Cider Vinaigrette
GAMBERETTI
Capellini, Jumbo Shrimp, Tomatoes, Spinach, Basil, Garlic, Extra Virgin Olive Oil
It was perfect! Pasta and Shrimp were done to perfection!
I tried to go back there for lunch on the day I left Norman but they were only open for dinner.
When I asked where the bathroom was the staff took me there. I have experienced this type of service before but only from extremely high priced restaurants so that was a real surprise.
I wish there was this standard of restaurant in my small townl Exceptional!
