My last review, about a year ago, called this place "Sad" - new owners dropped the ball. Today it seems to be better? Pasta special was very good. I didn't try the pizza which was poor a year ago. But I'm encouraged, and I'll return...More

We started and ended our evening in the bar. Great adult beverages and they had a fun band! Try the espresso martini!

My wife and daughter have celiac disease. The gluten free pizza was the best I’ve ever had and I’m an Italian foodie. The rest of our lunch was great, with fresh, healthy salads, and homemade pastas. I highly recommend a taste of Italy.!

The food was not good at all, we had the lasagna and a pasta dish that was incorrect. It was like they took it out of a can or box. The price we paid wasn't worth it at all. Service was slow, we are residents...More
