Single traveler so I look for a spot at the bar. The barkeep was very attentive and friendly. I ordered pasta pomodoro and it was excellent. Lots of veggies and nicely seasoned. I thought the other entrees were a little pricey but the pasta is priced right. I'll be back.

We were in town for three days and we are there twice. The pizza is our absolute favorite. It is unlike any pizza we have ever had before. Our waiter today was very friendly and service was perfect. This is our favorite restaurant in Tuscaloosa

Great local spot that's perfect for date night but also very fun for larger groups for any occasion. Good affordable wine selection (Meiomi seems to be a fan favorite). Reason for the missing star is that they don't have a Carbonara or a true chicken parm. Those are my favorite 2 pastas and I would expect them to serve those.... More

Atmosphere was nice, and the pasta was delicious. Great for an anniversary dinner. The shrimp scampi was lovely and so was the carnivore lasagna.

My friends and I go at least once or twice a year. Food is always great! If it were up to me I would go more often.

From the crispy angled garlic toast to the fresh herbs in the pasta, the meal was fantastic, but whatever you do, make sure that you have some bread pudding!!

My husband and I had a late lunch here and were very happy with everything. Our server was very attentive. We ordered two of the daily features - a salmon dish and a shrimp dish. Both were delicious and large quantities of food. Decor is charming.

Thank Valerie P
