As you walk in the door you know you are in a well run restaurant. The owner is often there greeting, overseeing his staff and lending authenticity with his welcoming Italian accent. The bread is terrific, served with balsamic dipping sauce. The pastas are flavorful and prepared correctly. The desserts look delightful, but the dinner portions are so generous that I've never made it to the desserts.The wait staff is always pleasant and attentive. The prices are reasonable and often there are specials. This is such a comfortable restaurant, not pretentious, a perfect choice for families, celebrations or date night.

Stopped by on trip through Gainesville, very close to I-75, exit 390. Wonderful food, from tomato bisque soup with crabmeat to innovative portabella appetizer to seafood and chicken entree. All very tasty, especially with lots of garlic!! No room left for their yummy-looking desserts, unfortunately. We highly recommend, will stop there whenever we are traveling through the area.

I recently had a business meeting in Gainesville and chose this restaurant for dinner. In short there is nothing but great things to say about the service and the food!!!
I met the owner, Paul. He was friendly and makes you feel welcomed. He was continually greeting people while at the same time orchestrating his staff to take care of their customers. The restaurant is in a great location and I am sure I will visit in the future.
