Trio Pasta is fabulous as you might expect. The Ribeye Steak is the very best in KCMO hands down. Love the atmosphere.

Kansas City MO has some really amazing food. This place is. A prime example the trio plate was delicious. Pumpkin cheesecake was outstanding. If you like homemade noodles, Ravioli this is the place to go.
