My wife and I had a craving for Italian, and this place was an easy walk from our hotel (well, if you ignore the 108 degree temperature). The décor is nice, and the staff friendly and attentive. I ordered the Frozen Italian Margarita. It was...More

This was a great place to eat. The atmosphere was cozy, the portions generous, and delicious. My husband and I shared the chicken marsala. Yum. It was great. Near several hotels and walking to the arenas was easy. I would go there again.

The menu was Italian but the atmosphere in the restaurant was lacking Italian charm. The food we had was well cooked and well presented and tasted fine but missed out on the Italian extras like olive oil and fresh Parmesan.

There's nothing really wrong with this place but not anything outstanding either. The food was okay, the drinks were okay, the service was okay. That said, I would not choose to eat there again because I just wasn't unimpressed and there are so many other...More
