We stop here most times on the way to a show at the Hotel DuPont - a block away and have never been disappointed. Never crowded but the food is great - specialize in Italian food - and we love it

Our server Francesca (sp?) was very enthusiastic about the menu and boldly made recommendations. "The chef just finished making a wonderful vegetable soup!". And it was - served at the perfect temperature too. Caesar salad dressing was a little light and could have had a bit more bite to it - garlic? Anchovies? Don't know. Sea bass was perfectly cooked...

There aren't a lot of restaurants in downtown Wilmington, but this one is convenient and provides friendly service and tasty food. I had the Ossobucco with gnocchi along with an excellent glass of Chianti. Hit the spot! Next time I'm in Wilmington I'll be coming back for more another meal.

Planned a special outing to this restaurant. Restaurant was empty when we arrived at 11:40. At 12:40 we were still not served our lunch and had to ask for it to go. The acting manger said she could not control the kitchen and told us that I should have made them aware of our time constraints. In this case the... More

The small crowd belied the service and the fare. We chose this for its convenient location, but would go back for the food and the service. Both the food and service were very good, and the prices were fair. I call it a very good value.

We were staying @ hotel DuPont & wanted a quiet meal, within walking distance. (However, public parking easily available.) Everything on the menu looked delicious!! Hubby ordered his favorite soup...almost like a wedding soup, but had egg whites, too. Delicious! I ordered asparagus wrapped in prosciutto. Awesome. I ordered seafood pasta and was surprised at the amount of fresh shrimp,... More

Convenient to several large office buildings. Food is decent non-meatball Italian. Staff is friendly and usually helpful and efficient. Has a popular post-office hour bar.

We went here with friends before a show at the Playhouse. It took a while for everyone to arrive, but once we did we were seated quickly. The restaurant was fairly empty so I was hopeful that we could take our time over our meals, then just stroll over to the Playhouse. After quite a while, we had to ask... More
