Visiting Cleveland wasn't sure about going to an Italian restaurant being from the NYC area . I've got to say that their tomato sauce may have been the best I've ever had. The home made pasta was really fabulous My son loved the pizza

Celebrating a friends retirement with about 20 guests. Service was fast and excellent. We were given several items to choose from and of those items we were also able to make changes. Very accommodating. Food was excellent

Menu selection is diverse within Italian fare. Chicken marsala is delicious. The bread rolls are fresh & tasty. Service is friendly & efficient. They also offer a nice selection of adult beverages.
