“Another fantastic visit”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

I stumbled into this establishment 7 years ago. It was the best find for overall food choice in the Fort Worth/Dallas area for me. The authentic Italian food is superior. The atmosphere is ideal. Don't judge the place on the looks of it from the outside. The inside is what counts here. You will not be disappointed. ALL of the food is great.

“Great local spot”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

This restaurant resides in an unassuming strip mall on a busy street. But when you enter the doors, you are surprised by the large size of the space, as well as the warmth. Because it is generally full, there is an energy that is appealing. The waitstaff are perfectly attentive and efficient, beginning with the lighting of your candle and the opening of the wine you brought with you. Yep, it's a BYOB, bringing your cost down for sure. Entrees come with a good size house salad, and the non-pasta dishes come with a side of speghetti. Portions are generous--you won't go home hungry! Decor is decidedly "non-chain"--a welcome change in this neck of the woods!

“Magical dining!”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

We were in town for a convention and wanted some good italian food. Tripadvisor came thru 100% this time! Great atmosphere. The restaurant was almost full on a Tuesday night with what were obviously a lot of locals (great sign!) When our waiter realized we were from out of state he went and got the owner... who entertained us with card tricks at our table for a good 10 minutes. Fun time! Charming and attentive staff combined with really great food... unbeatable combination.
We will seek this restaurant out again when we come to town.

“Excellent!!!!!”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

This was the best Italian food I've ever had. Atmosphere was good. Service was great. BYOB. Especially loved the elderly Italian gentleman that greeted us and shook our hand when we left asking if the food was good. Definitely YES!!!!!

“Fabulous Italian Food”
Reviewed 25 July 2014 via mobile

May be the best Italian restaurant I've ever eaten at. Food was fabulous. Service was excellent and everything was priced well considering the quality. A bonus is you can bring your own wine in!
Mostly adults as its a small establishment, would not say it's small child appropriate.
