Second time at this terrific restaurant, and every bit as good as the first! We had reservations, since there are not many tables, and were promptly seated after a warm welcome. Shared a small carafe of red house wine, very good and reasonably priced. Several specials were offered in addition to the main menu. We shared the special caprese salad, which was definitely large enough for two. Then we shared a delicious shrimp dish, with pasta; the shrimp were very fresh and large. For dessert, cannolis with homemade cannoli cream, probably the best I have ever tasted. In fact, so good that we returned the next evening for dessert! Everything about this restaurant makes for a very-leasant dining experience. I will definitely return when back in Salem!

I was in Salem for 5 nights and ate here 4 of them! LOVED the food - authentic Italian. The owners are from Verona and know what they're doing. This is the real deal (from someone who used to live in Italy!) If you're looking for Americanized pizza & spaghetti this is not for you - go to the Olive Garden. Ha! Great small place, and the service was always excellent!

Not only is the place inviting and charming, the food is delicious. Try the pasta with bolognese, it's one of the best in local Italian restaurants. It's a sweet place to bring a date or enjoy your grown up family.

Had dinner there during a recent visit to Salem
Didn’t realize they only served beer and wine- ordered Sangria which was overpriced
Bread was old and seemed like it was reheated- the spread with it seemed to be made from olives but couldn’t figure out what else- maybe olive oil but very dry
Asked if they had homemade Pasta and was told tagliatelle for extra cost- no problem except it was over cooked and mushy! The veal was very tender though! Will not be back

Stopped in one night on our trip to eat a very late dinner. Three of us shared ravioli and tortellini. Both were delicious! The service was excellent, and the place is very cute inside. Highly recommend!
