We dined here for one evening and found the food to be quite good. The servers are high caliber and very friendly. From the outside, it looks like you are about to walk into a common diner but once you round the corner into the dining room the classy ambience immediately sinks in. The tables have white cloth tablecloths, spotless wine glasses, candles, and plush chairs. The service is sophisticated but not stuffy. Our drink and food orders were taken promptly and the food came out without much wait. It is clear there is a genuine chef at work in the kitchen as the food was savory and balanced. This place is one of our new favorites.

I have visited this restaurant several times and each time I'm always happy with my meal and service. They have authentic Italian food and an amazing wine selection. I think this restaurant may be the best kept secret in Polk County. Highly recommend.

A co-worker recommended this restaurant. It was even better than expected. Not a lot of cons, only that there isn't a lot of space between tables. Other than that, no complaints. Really delicious food. We had the chicken parmigian and the gnocchi with pine nuts.Service was exceptional, and despite the close proximity, the ambiance is otherwise intimate. I will definitely return.

The food was excellent, the atmosphere was quiet. Intimate dinner for two. Bread with oil and spices was really good.
