“Nice atmosphere great food”
Reviewed 1 May 2014 via mobile

Hubby and I came upon this Italian bistro last night. Thought it looked a little pricey But you get what you pay for. Wine was only $4 a glass. Salads came with the meal. Italian style rolls with olive oil, balsamic vinaigrette and garlic before the salad were delicious. Seconds were offered and enjoyed.
Hubby had a pasta bowl. Spaghetti carbonara and added sausages. He thought it was very good. Not so much the sausages.
I had chicken Parmesan which was honestly one of the best I have ever tasted. The sauce was sweet and delicious. Took half if it home as the portions were so large.
Waitress was so very nice and helpful. She was training another waitress and between them both kept us laughing. You don't get that very often these days!!
Don't hesitate to try this place. They do offer both inside and outside seating. Also serving pizza, you can order a little less expense if you want something easier on your wallet. The bill for two meals, one appetizer, of wild mushroom risotto, which was delicious, and two glasses of wine came to $59 plus tip. Very we'll worth it. Bona petite!!

“It is called pasta, not noodles !”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

The owner or manager needs to have a meeting with the wait staff to let them know that when you work in an Italian restaurant to call pasta what it is pasta, not noodles. That being said, as far as the food I have better and I have had worse. At first taste the sauce was good but as I kept eating became acidy. The sausage was tasty but was served sliced and sliced again and grilled. The house salad was very tasty but also very small. I wouldn't say I won't go back but I will not go out of my way to go there either.

“Anti-pet. Will no longer give them my business.”
Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

I was a regular diner until today, when I happened to have my little dog with me. Although they have a nice separate outside patio area, they would not allow me to bring the dog into the open patio so they lost a regular customer. There was no reason for their position regarding the dog.
