“Mixed Emotions”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

Let me start off by saying that we came here because it seemed to have pretty good reviews compared to the other places.
When we walked in, we stood at the podium for entirely too long. It was 5pm and the place was far from being busy. We had a few employees walk by us and smile, but saying nothing. Eventually the lady spotted us, she had been standing at the bar chatting someone up instead of doing her job. When we finally got seated, we sat for just over 10min before our waiter showed up to ask us what we wanted to drink.
Now the waiter we liked. I wish we could remember his name. He was a Hispanic guy maybe in his 40s. He was very nice, had a good sense of humor with him too.
Once we got the food, we chowed down. It was quite good. By the time we were eating we had forgotten about the terrible service we received at the beginning. We had almost walked out before ordering because it seemed we were being ignored. Had that particular waiter got there at the right time and starting it off with humor then this restaurant wouldn't have made the money we spent. It's sad when good waiters and talented chefs get stuck working with careless coworkers and uninvolved/bad management.

“Food was not good!”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

The atmosphere is nice, and our waitress was pleasant. The food was terrible and left a terrible taste in all six of our mouths! The Alfredo sauce was brown. The rolls were dry. We tried multiple dishes, and they were all disappointing.

“Pleased with food and service”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

We visited this establishment based on trip advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. Our server Clinton was attentive and helpful. The linguine alla bolongese was nearly the best i've ever had. My wife had the caprese salad and all the ingredients were fresh and bright. If we are ever in Roswell again we will surely return.

“Wonderful Italian food!”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

Stopped in for dinner because it was close to our hotel. We were dressed like weary travelers, but you could dress a little nicer for this restaurant. Food was top notch; service excellent. I'd definitely recommend it.

“Great food and great people!”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

A home town feeling but lots of character, too. Our waiter, Cody was a fresh-faced youth still memorizing the menu but he worked everything perfectly, brought everything as ordered and kept our spirits light with his banter. The food is typical Tuscan style and it is good. Portions were more then we bargained for. The Torte di Cicolatto was a real treat for dessert!
