When you walk in, you really don't know what to expect from this place. It has a counter and checkered floor that reminds me of a pizza shop. Looks casual. Then, you can walk into the next part and it looks like a bar and...More

Very good entrees with many offered as "Cravings" or Tapas. Under $10 for more food than one should eat. LOL. I am filled when I leave. I eat here often and never disappointed.

Not sure what was our favorite... the entree, the tiramisu, or Cassidy our waitress. To start with our food was very good. I had the special ravioli and my daughter had the spaghetti. I do have to also say that it was the best tiramisu...More

Had pasta carbonara. Maybe it would have been better in house, but I ordered to go. The flavor was great, the pancetta was even better, but the sauce was like soup.More

I'm very sorry but you are indeed correct. Carbonara is best when consumed immediately after serving so in order to prevent it from firming up on takeout orders we're required to add extra cream. In the past we would try to warn our guests -...More
