We truly enjoyed this restaurant twice. First time we ordered Tortellini alla Panna with a Caesar Salad. Excellent. The bread is also delicious. The 2nd visit we order pizza to take out and the Margarita was excellent. Highly recommend.

Franco, the chef came out to visit us and describe how he would cook our food so as to avoid any of the allergen. The hospitality is great. It is... More

We were seated in the VIP section of this quaint dining room. Bottles of wine tucked into the walls created an atmosphere with the Italian holiday music playing made for a fun start to our meal. Tiffany, our server was very attentive checking on us at just the right time. We ordered the eggplant parm and lasagna both served with... More

Our hotel told us to try it out. After pulling into this strip mall, I was not enthusiastic about it. Strip mall food sucks. My boyfriend convinced me to go in and look. We walk into this tiny little room where we were quickly greeted by a friendly staff. They open up a door fro us to enter the restaurant.... More
