Don't expect frills - just really good food and friendly service. After a day of nordic skiing we happened upon this little place right on the main street of Huntsville. Pizza is thin crust and delicious, meat balls tender and tasty. Caesar salad is simply just right. Subtle flavours and everything is homemade all across the menu. It was such... More

The server was very informative and the food was served very quickly. My boyfriend and I ordered the club wrap and the chicken Caesar wrap, both very yummy

My family had lunch here under the recommendation of a hotel staff member and trip advisor reviews. We were quite disappointed. The food was nothing special, the portions were small and the prices were high considering the amount of food you get. We were happy they sold authentic gelato for dessert though!

It's easy to see why the reviews are so good for this awesome restaurant. We continue to return here for the excellent service and the melt in your mouth food. Oh did I mention the lasagna OMG it's friggen delishious and it always makes us wonder how they make the pasta so thin. Great work and we will see you... More

The restaurant is fairly basic in its furnishings and the layout is such that some tables are are close to a hallway passing towards the back of the restaurant. The food was OK. Service not all that good (no pepper mill offered for pasta and paying required going to the counter after a relatively long wait).

I chose this restaurant for my family( the night before a dogsledding trip in Algonquin )based on the fantastic reviews. I was quite disappointed in the end. Although my husband and daughter were satisfied, my son and I were not. This did not feel like authentic Italian at all! I had the Frutti di mare with GF pasta ( which... More

Delicious. Saw it on "You Gotta Eat Here" and it did not disappoint. Very friendly staff and the tiramisu was best I've ever had.

Excellent Italian food. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu, and the timing between courses was perfect - not too fast or too slow. We had the daily soup - a rustic, homemade ham and vegetable - lasagne, and chicken piccata. Delicious, and generous portions, too. Highly recommended!

Based on reviews from others, we decided to visit while in the area. The service was quick and attentive. The decor was nice with an ambiance that felt like an old family favorite. We had a terrific calabrese salad, caesar and shared their famous lasagna for dinner. All classic dishes executed wonderfully. You could tase the freshness and love in... More
