“Best Italian on the West side”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

Wonderful, family owned place, with real italian dishes that actually have some flavor. Tomato sauces that taste like real tomatoes were used, not some canned, processed glop like in so many other so-called Italian restaurants. Fresh food, great flavors, friendly service.

“FAMILY ITALIAN”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

Went with friends to check out this small family run Italian restaurant. We were all very pleased with our meals. Pasta dishes were very good. The perch special was excellent as well as a chicken, sausage and shrimp pasta special. Decent wine selection but first Pinot Noir pour tasted old. It was returned without question and replaced with a very good Malbec. Good friendly atmosphere but very small bar area.

Reviewed 18 August 2013 via mobile

The service was great she was very nice and the owners make us feel extremely welcomed they are very nice and the food is good the fillet mignon is very good but the sauce was a little sour but if you scrape off a little bit, it will be tasty.

“Wonderful Italian”
Reviewed 27 July 2013 via mobile

This is a little strip mall Italian restaurant. It was a forty five minute wait at 7:30 on Saturday. The food was delicious, wonderful waitress and a great evening! We would definitely go back.

“Food Just Isn't Good”
Reviewed 11 July 2013

We stopped in for a quick dinner this week because we were shopping in the area. I had only been here once and it's been a few years. But I remembered it as small, cozy, and good italian food. The location and atmosphere haven't changed. But the food was not good, especially not for the price and standards the restaurant seems to convey. I had basic pasta with bolognese sauce and meatballs. The sauce was thin, without any of the rich meaty flavor you expect in a bolognese. Most disappointing were the meatballs. They were actually inedible. They looked almost black, and tasted so bad that my husband and I both had to spit it out. Unfortunately, we left with the conviction that we will never go back. There are just too many other better options.
