Great restaurant in downtown Herndon and located a block from Elden Street. Very nice decor with great food and friendly waiters. This is a more fine dining restaurant with linen table clothes and napkins, very 1920/1930s type building with dark woods. The lamb chops are excellent, as is the Lasagne, and other dishes.

Restaurant was highly recommended to my lunch companion by a local politician. Turned out to be fantastic. Had a salad and the pasta with shrimp. Best pasta I'd had in months. Service was excellent. Would like to try it for an evening dinner. hope to return again.

I just love this place! Not a chain, intimate, good waitstaff and wonderful well prepared food. Perfect for a special occasion, couples night out or just anytime. Great Italian favorites and yummy "specials". From start to finish well done and great value !

I love this place. A lot of meals you'd expect at an Italian restaurant, and all are done very well. The veal is always top notch, and the sea food dinners are great.

Long time locals restaurant with great Italian food. Very welcoming staff. A bit dated inside but the food is very, very good. Right in the heart of Herndon. Small free parking lot with street (pay) parking nearby. Went w/3 others and we all loved our dishes. Would return and do recommend.

Awesome dining experience! The veal chop is to die for and the service is attentive without being intrusive ...or worse, hovering. Thanks for another memorable evening!

This place is very awesome to spend time with family for some special occasion. The environment is very warming and enjoyable with great food and wine. They can be a place for a casual lunch as well., or a small group meeting. I love this place very much
