Wonderful local Italian restaurant. I've come here with friends for lunch, for dinner with my husband and also with extended family. It's one of our favorite special-occasion spots in the area.

Went there for lunch. We both had the lasagne. Was ok. The salad was lettuce, one small slice of tomato, and one small slice of cucumber. Bread was good and main course was good. Small portions, Main course was a long time coming. Waitress was good and friendly. It was not a place that we would hurry back to. Prices... More

Love the food here. We had the eggplant medallions, flatiron steak, and the meatloaf - all delicious. Make reservations because the cafe is small. Loved our waitress (Jenny, I believe). Only downside this time was a long wait at the front door before being seated

Yum! Very good Italian fare. If you go on Saturday, make sure you call for a table and if there will be music.

I hated the food at this place. They put leftover chicken on my salad. It tasted like leftovers. It is a very small establishment.

Great Italian restaurant with a Tuscan feel. Pastas and breads taste like they are from Italy. Solid wine and beer selection to complement every meal.

BEST CEASAR SALAD IN THE AREA - Most consistent food in town. Always good. I would suggest the Red Pepper Cream Sauce. Nice & COZY with a GREAT STAFF.

We took my mother and her boyfriend here for lunch. This was his first time here, but the other three of us had dined here before. It was a hit! My mother and friend each had the chicken salad sandwich, we had the Italian chef salad and baked lasagna. Everything was fresh and delicious! My mother especially enjoys the fresh... More
