Nice little Italian neighborhood joint. Looking for haute cuisine with upscale ambiance? Move on. Seeking more down home Italian 'takeoffs' on authentic dishes? This is your destination. Don't be put off by the run down 'hood'. It's a sedate local bar after the kitchen closes - mostly for locals. We were impressed with the Bruzzaluni appetizer - braised rolled round steak with a simple stuffing served in a succulent Suga (gravy in Italian) sauce. Tender & toothsome. Tami was pleased with her generous portion of cheese ravioli. I loved the Vitelli Melanzane - a tender breaded veal scallop topped with a serving of Eggplant Parmesan with the house Suga sauce - smoother than a marinara with a touch of initial sweetness followed by a l'il bit of peppery finish. Non-pasta Entrees come with soup or salad (loved the house dressing) & potato/pasta/eggplant parm choice. Lubricate all with a decent Chianti Classico and all is well in our world. Sorry, too stuffed to even consider dessert.

The lasagna was so good!! Our dinner last Sunday was perfect. We had the toasted raviolis to start and the sauce is my favorite.

The chicken fettuccine was very good as well as the cheesecake. This place has a very authentic, old school vibe to it. Great food and great service.

Not impressive or good food at all. The prices sure set a different tone, but even the bread before the meal was just white sandwich bread, and the rest of the meal seemed to be a joke as well, steep prices for average Italian food.

Don't let the location or the outside appearance fool you. This is a top spot for Italian food in Kansas City. It's on the edge of downtown and doesn't look like much from the outside but it's a great atmosphere, great service and great food. Can't wait to go back.
