Boy oh boy I have to take issue with all these 5 star reviews. I had the veal Marsala. I was given 3 large pieces, 2 went untouched. The veal wasn’t tender and the sauces flavors were okay at best. The bill was very high...More

The perfect little Italian place for a date night! Definitely grab an appetizer, because it does take a bit to get your meal. The gnocchi appetizer was amazing and we loved the house Cabernet. Service was great. Be sure to make a reservation- this isn’t...More
