Bear in mind that italian is my specialty including making my own pasta so I may be a tad overly critical. However I found this restaurant to be pretty much average. We both had linguine Alfredo with shrimp. This was ok...just ok. Quite simply there wasn't much flavour to the sauce this could be due to an inferior parmesan or... More

Excellent pasta, tasted all homemade. Busy place in the summer, so don't expect a quiet meal, but the staff is friendly and the ambience is good. Portions are quite big, but I didn't mind because I love leftovers haha

We both had the soup special (roasted red pepper with potato) to start and it was delicious. Husband had the linguine alfredo with pesto as his main and I had chicken crepes, which were also very tasty - and big! Of the three crepes, two came home with us to anchor a subsequent lunch.

Hadn't been there for a long while..was disappointed. The atmosphere seems to have changed and the food and wine prices a little high for a small cafe..would still recommend it for lunch but not for dinner...better choices in and around Huntsville.

I'm a big fan of the show "you gotta eat here" which was what brought me to this place. And for the most part every restaurant they have shown I agree you have to eat there. This one was ok. The food was very expensive for pasta and pizza so because it was so expensive I thought it would be... More

The reviews are so good on TA, we had to try it. This place is nothing like a restaurant in Italy. It is small, too bright and not relaxing. In Italy we spent 2-3 hours relaxing and enjoying our meals. Here you are rushed to finish. There are no meat option such as steaks or main course fish freshly prepared... More

Spent a lovely hour or so walking about the downtown of Huntsville looking at the Group of Seven Outdoor Gallery murals, and when we started to feel hunger pangs we happened to be right beside "That Little Place by the Lights". I ordered the Chicken Parmesan Panini and Hubby ordered the Diavolo pizza. The panini was just 'okay'. Was kind... More

Was recommended by the staff at the hotel. So pleased that it was. When we called in it was full and there was a crowd of people waiting which we thought was a good sign. It didn't take long until we were seated and here was a nice bar area to wait in. We had 3 courses. Homemade soup was... More
