This is the first time we’ve been here since it was revamped from Salvatore. The space is open and light. The food I would give four stars but the service was scattered and uneven; it could be that they were short staffed, but it seemed...More

We've been several times. We feel welcome and the food has been delicious every time. They recently remodeled and the place has a calm atmosphere. We will definitely be returning one day soon.

The title should not be taken as a slam. This is a legit Italian place with food that will blow you away. They closed for a while and reopened under this new name. Mom (Angela) makes the desserts-try them.

The happy hour cocktails and food list are a great value. We had the grilled artichoke which was tasty. For the main meal, salads were good but the entrees—meh! We had the seafood pasta...seafood was over cooked and pasta was perfect; and pasta with meat...More

No. Street parking is metered 10a to 8p and is expensive. The W.C. Library across street has parking in underground garage and is reasonable.
