This downtown restaurant has a great atmosphere with exposed brick walls and high ceilings. The food is fantastic, authentic Italian cuisine. Don't go on a buffet day, go when you can order off the menu. Our Italian family loves it. Full bar, great wine list.

We have dined here several times and love it. We have also taken three other couples there and they also loved it. The food is great, the portions are huge and can easily be dinner the next night with a take home. The decor is very cool and the ambiance is just loud enough the feel vibrant, but not overbearing.... More

We had a fabulous dinner there. The risotto was perfect and the oso bucco, according to my husband, was amazing. Paired with a great red wine suggested by the server. Finally the tiramisu was a perfect ending. We will definitely return!

Checked again after 15 minutes and was told that we were on the list to be seated based on when we came in. I... More

Our original table was located in the "back" dining room. The room was nice, but incredibly noisy. The bus tubs were back toward the kitchen. The servers and bussers made absolutely no attempt to (quietly) place the dishes in the bus tubs. They threw them in with no regard for how loud they were being. The servers were also gathered...

My husband and I have been here several time. The food is always consistently good and the service is as well. We have had a number of dishes from their menu and have enjoyed them all. The bread they serve is also terrific. The only complaint I have with this place is that it tends to get very noisy in... More
