“Delicious, delightful, delectable, wonderful! Experience it yourself!”
Reviewed 24 July 2011

The building is impressive and so is the service, presentation and food. One member of our group never found a stuffed grape leaf she liked until she tasted the ones here. We had the Phesen Joon - grilled chicken with pomegranate walnut sauce, served with basmati rice, Seared Halibut served with angel hair pasta and Veal Saltimboca served with choice of pasta or rice. Desserts included Tiramisu and Passion Fruit Sorbet - again delicious.
Suzanne, our server, was knowledgeable and attentive. The chef was able to accommodate food allergies too. The atmosphere and decor is nice and the food is just so savory.
We arrived at 6:00 and were the only customers, but when we left about 7:15, seven other parties had arrived. No one was at the bar, so I don't know how the atmosphere would be later in the evening. But it was just fine when we were there. We didn't make reservations, but it might be advantageous if arriving later in the evening.

“Awesome place”
Reviewed 24 February 2011

I took my wife to this place one evening after work. It's off the beaten path, so she didn't know about it. Food was very delicious, and I had a coupon, so that made it even better! We dined on veal and chicken marsala, sopped up olive oil with fresh bread, sipped good wine--all in a quiet atmosphere! My only somewhat complaint was the neon "Open" sign out front. Not suitable for such a nice establishment--maybe for a pizza place though!

“Fantastic, upscale Italian food that's been infused with Middle Eastern flavor!”
Reviewed 5 July 2010

You can tell that the owner, Mortez, puts his heart and soul into his food and his restaurant. It'll be a rare night that he doesn't come out to greet you. Blending Mediterranean / middle eastern flare to classic italian dishes is a lovely combination and Mortez executes this fusion very well at this upscale Italian restaurant.

I've had at least 2/3 of his menu, and he serves one of the most tender, tastiest beef tenderloins in all of Memphis, and that's tough to write given Folks Folly, Erlings, and the likes. His Tartufo is a fantastic desert and his version of Caprese is a must.

Prices are fairly reasonable.
