Don't let the ancient strip mall location scare you off. This is the best place in the greater Cedar Rapids metroplex for Italian dining. The menu is not overwelming, but does have a nice variety of options, additionally there is a daily special. The wait...More

Food wasn't hot, service was slow and unfriendly, atmosphere just isn't what it used to be. Plenty of people at the bar, perhaps it is a better bar than a restaurant at this point? Made reservations. Restaurant claimed not to have them.

This was recommended by friends as the place to go. We were not impressed. The portions were small and over priced.

Flights were late getting in to Cedar Rapids. Found this little "bookstore/Italian" restaurant. Great ambiance! Pleasant staff! Kitchen was open until ten and they didn't close until eleven. Would recommend the lasagna or shrimp Florentine.
