Pizza crust was perfection, pasta sampler was delicious with ample amounts of cheese, and the dish with chicken, Italian sausage and peppers in a Marsala sauce was over the top! This is a beautiful restaurant that reminds us of Italy and we will absolutely return!

Okay Italian food, spotty service. Everything very average. Easy access near Loop 256 and West Oak. Limited parking. Overshadowed by the very popular Little Mexico next door. Ironic since this was the former location of Little Mexico.

Excellent food, excellent atmosphere, clean, friendly, delightful decor, modest prices, good location. Two things make this a truly great dining experience in addition to a great kitchen: no bar and no annoying TV. I've had the Tortellini Bolognese and it is excellent. Their appetizer breads...More

Ate here for lunch and really liked it. I had the Spaghetti and meatball lunch special. It comes with garlic rolls and a side salad. The rolls were very good and my entree was also good. It won't break the bank either, my bill was...More
