“Think my review was posted to City Hardware”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Good Italian food, friendly staff and owner. Brick pizza oven transplanted from Italy, and the pizzas/flatbreads have excellent flavor. Good duck roasted properly. Salads and steaks are delectable. Worth a side trip to eat here!

“City Hardware parent restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

I like the spaghetti and other pasta dishes as well as any I have had in metropolitan areas such as Atlanta and Baltimore, in the Italian districts. There is a brick pizza oven that I believe Mr. Elliott had transplanted from Italy. Their flatbreads/pizzas have excellent flavor and the salads are delicious also.

“Best Italian in Florence”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2013 via mobile

Great Italian selection and staff. My favorite is the ravioli with tomato cream. The bread, fresh herbs, olive oil, and Parmesan is awesome and I'm typically full before my meal arrives. Great place to eat!

“Mediocre Italian Fare”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

Service was good, but food was average at best. Probably could do better at Olive Garden or similar. Noisy bar like atmosphere. Both chicken dishes we had were overcooked and portions were small for the money.

“Possibly the Best Pizza in North Alabama”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

This is our restaurant of choice when we want a great wood-fired, brick oven pizza...even though it's more than an hour from home. It's worth the drive! The bread and olive oil dip they serve while you wait for your order is also fantastic!
