Where to begin..?? This place bills itself as "authentic Italian". Not sure how they think what the offer and serve is authentic Italian. First, the pizzas offered on a 'special thin crust' are actually 12" flour tortillas. Ever entree comes with angel hair- even the Lasagna! That's just crazy. The sauce is not anything special, wouldn't be surprised if it... More

We have eaten here multiple times and it is always great. I try to choose something different from the menu every time. I haven't found anything that I didn't like. We enjoy bringing our out of town guests here.

My husband and I recently visited this restaurant after seeing the reviews on TA. I don't even know where to begin. First, it took a while for our waitress to take our order. We were about to leave when she finally came to take our order (there was only one other table of people eating). I ordered the stuffed Capellini... More

I've only been here once because I couldn't believe I spent around $50 for two people and not only did I hate the food but it took forever to come out. Also, parking is sparse and inconvenient.

Looking for something that wasn't a chain during a business trip to Fayetteville. Great cozy little restaurant. Our food was delicious & served quickly. Great portion sizes. Parking is a little weird with the little hotel next door. Reasonably priced.

Cozy, quiet, just a very good place to enjoy an evening of excellent Italian food and a nice bottle of wine! You will never leave hungry! We always leave with a carry out. Recommended dining.

But, this time we took the whole family. The service was great, and everyone loved their food; that's a small miracle in itself. It looks and feels very welcoming---a mixture of Italy and Arkansas. It's one of the restaurants in Fayetteville that everyone should try.

We ate here today and would only rate it a 3 but in the past it was a 4.5. The chicken Milano tasted sour. The kids cheese pizza was really good.

Doesn't look much on the outside, but it is friendly and the food is tasty and hot. I had the manicotti and my friend had the cannaloni. Both were delicious. They came with salad and bread and you can add your own grated cheese. We both needed take home boxes as there was a lot of food. I would visit... More
