It was gnocchi night and it was outstanding. The waitress suggested the smoky tomato sauce. I was so glad I ordered it. My husband had lasagna. He was stuffed and oh so pleased. Highly recommend.

Took my wife to this restaurant recently and was the best dinning experience she and I have ever experienced. The restaurant was very clean, the staff was super attentive and the food was top notch! No wonder this restaurant is ranked #1 for Italian restaurants...More

Wonderful pizza and salad. Called in the order and it was ready when they said it would be. Restaurant was full - people waiting outside but they were right on with the takeout.
