We arrived at the beginning of lunch service and found the cool interior a welcome respite from 90 degree heat. Our waiter knew the menu and size of portions and enabled us to choose to share the Marghereti Pizza and the Arugula and shrimp salad....More

Great location in Cherry Creek. Design is clean and bright, modern. Menu is predictable light Italian. Nice service. Perfect for a quick lunch if you are in the area. Will definitely return for the Brussel sprouts alone!

Great location in Cherry Creek, we dined outside, and we had a great server (Michael) but the food was just average. Granted, we didn't order a lot of food but the food we did order was prepared properly but nothing fancy. We walked away unimpressed,...More
