We chose this restaurant because it is one of the few in town that serves Spaghetti Carbonara. We were not disappointed. We ate here two Fridays in a row. The tomatoes caprese, veal marsala, shrimp alfredo, canoli and spaghetti carbonara were excellent. They have a nice wine list and the staff is excellent. My only critique would be that it was quite warm in the restaurant because of the outside temperature, the small size of the dining room and the nearby kitchen. Crank up the A/C and it's five starts from me!

Located in the Fairmount Shopping Plaza (strip mall) in Mount Pleasant, this small, unassuming restaurant offers a classic Italian menu of seven veal dishes, chicken, seafood and several pasta choices as well as nightly specials. Have eaten here a couple of times and delighted both times. Most recently went with friends for dinner and we shared the salmon carpaccio and calamari starters. The salmon was good, but the lightly fried calamari was outstanding - tender and delicious. For entrees our party ordered veal piccata, gamberi agli scampi , spaghetti alla caronara, and the mussels and shrimp special. We asked our waiter for wine recommendations and he suggested a couple of Italian whites we had never heard of. They went perfectly with our dishes. Highly recommended that you trust the staff here and order something besides chardonnay. Just saying. Finished off with the limoncello cake and dessert special of ice cream in a chocolate shell. Yum! Good service, reasonable prices. Highly recommended. Only open for dinner. Reservations recommended.

A small friendly restaurant serving some really good food. The thing that surprised us all was the amount of veal dishes on the menu - something you don't see very often these days. 4 of us shared the Caprese Salad & Bruschetta as starters and there was ample food. Mains were Veal Parmigiana, Veal Piccata, Fettuccine Boscaiola, and Lasagne Napoletana and all large servings - I ended up taking half my Veal Parmigiana home with me. Veal was tender and well cooked. Deserts were Tiramisu and Cannoli - not the best we have ever had, but still good. Good wine list at reasonable prices. Pleasant low key service. We shall return! Recommended.

The food and service was superb. My wife had a stuffed veal and I had a trio of fish, scallops, and shrimp with linguine. We have dined there on other occasions and found the food always delicious. When you go there don'the miss their Limon cello cake. It is in house made and the end to a perfect meal.

Surprisingly good Italian food. Reasonable prices, nice service. Small family owned place. In a strip mall and only 10 tables but it works.
