Loved this restaurant. The service was awesome, and the food was absolutely amazing! We live on the west coast, and we just can't get good Italian food like this! I would highly recommend it to anyone passing through Syracuse, NY.

This cute little place in Armory square is absolutely fantastic. My boyfriend and I both got the chicken riggies (mine was full spice, he cut the spice down on his). Both were fantastic. Everything is definitely fresh and homemade. It's not "fancy" (when we came...More

I had the penne with hot tomato oil and my daughter had the rigatoni with alfredo. We shared a tossed green salad. All items were tasty and the portions were large. Fun dining experience for us!
