My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful meal at the bar. We were welcomed by the owner, a true Italian gentleman from Livorno, Italy. The seafood dish was outstanding. Great location in the warehouse district, with outside dining in warm weather.

My review echoes what many others say... the service is so bad that you feel uncomfortable. Food was so-so, which is a shame because the atmosphere is great. Go to Caffe Luna instead if you want quality Italian food, good service and nice atmosphere.

An unexpected visit to Videri Chocolates (be sure to visit before or after dinner) brought us to this area on Davie St. We perused the menu on the door and decided it was worth a try so we didn't have to move our car! We were so glad we took a chance on this delightful little restaurant! Dinner started with... More

Went here before show, review in Yelp was not quite accurate. While the food was very good, the amount was a little sparse for the price, especially the Antipasto Appetizer. The waiter was so unfriendly he made us feel very uncomfortable, like we were an inconvenient annoyance.Wanted dessert, asked if the Tiramisu was made there fresh, he was so annoyed,... More

We found this place while researching restaurants close to the Red Hat Amphitheater. Apparently, we got there a little early, before they opened for dinner service at 430. The door was open, so we went in. We didn't realize they weren't open yet, and we told (a little abruptly) to come back. We almost didn't. But, being from out town... More

Mixed bag. It's Restaurant Week in Raleigh. I would think as a restaurant owner this is an important week to make a good first impression. It didn't happen. So many restaurants to choose from, we won't be back. I like the setting and decor. I think a little background music might add to the atmosphere. Waitress was friendly, but somehow... More

We had tickets to see Aussie Pink Floyd last night. Show was spectacular. We chose to eat at Tuscan Blu as the located was excellent. We parked in a lot across the street for $5. We chose not to park in the Valet parking lot. It was a 5 min walk after dinner to the theater. They had a $20... More
