We have visited this restaurant several times in their different location. We always find the food and service in the Scordato tradition. Well prepared, presented and definitely enjoyed. They carry on the tradition that caught our attention when they were located on West Speedway.

Yes. Every meal is prepared fresh, so if you want low salt, just ask when ordering. This is upscale Northern Italian, not the spaghetti and meatball house that is so common.
