“Good for Quick Italian Meal”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

My sister, dad and I stopped here for a quick meal together on a weeknight. It was surprisingly packed but we were able to get a table fast. My sister and I shared the pear gorganzola pizza which was delicious, and we shared the farfalle pasta dish which had way too much oil pooling on the bottom of the dish but was good if you steered clear of the oil. My dad had an arugula salad with salmon and it was very good. I would definitely stop here again and think it is cheaper and quicker than Pomodoro's across Monroe Ave. Our waiter was very friendly - we had no drinks and I think total came to $45.

“Good Italian in a town full of Italian Restaurants”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

We had not been here for quite some time but we were at the plaza and stopped in for a late dinner. We ordered one of the pasta dishes and the chicken parm. Nothing fancy but they did a good job with both meals. The marinara sauce had a nice bit of garlic in it, which I really like, and the chicken was moist (often this can be dry at other places). Solid food done well and at a reasonable price. We will not wait so long for a return visit.

“Nice dinner”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

We had a small get together here and everything was done very well. We had to change our reservation when we walked in and it was not a problem, they rearranged for us right away. The decor is nice, a good balance between casual and fancy. I appreciate that they keep your water glasses filled (some restaurants seem to despise giving people water because its free!). Our server was attentive but not overbearing and friendly enough. She was patient with our questions on the menu.

They start you off with bread and again, they weren't skimpy at all which I found surprising. There were so many things on the menu that I wanted to try from the pasta dishes to salads and appetizers but I went with the caramelized salmon. The salmon was beyond amazing, it was perfectly cooked and I can't even explain how much I loved the caramelization- something I've never had or even seen on a menu before. The pasta it was served with had a light sauce on it that didn't really taste like much, so I left a lot of that and the zucchini uneaten. The server also split the check for us without an issue. I would definitely return when I'm in the area again.

A very good spot for a quiet lunch. It is now very bright inside since remodeling. The food is good.
