  • I lived in Italy for a few years, and I can tell you - the food here is legit. You'll have trouble deciding... so I recommend the pasta sampler; it's a great way to taste a variety of their dishes!
  • Bitches Say B. The blood orange mimosas were delicious, as were the frittatas. Service is impeccable and ambiance is pleasant. But, go for dinner, and dont bother with brunch.
  • If you're not getting the balsamic beef you're out of your mind! The food here helps me forget momentarily that I'm not in Italy!
  • Go for the pasta sampler and the tiramisu, which are both awesome. The veal with porcini mushrooms was lackluster.
  • OMG...the cheesecake is the best I've ever had!!!!
  • The pasta sampler is a must get. If you are deciding between the balsamic and the blueberry steak go with the balsamic. Trust me.
  • It's not risotto. It's riso. Google it They're different. Good wine list.
  • Great wine list!
  • Dont get the topini al Gorgonzola, lemon flavor and too sweet for gnocchi but the steak w/ blueberry or balsamic reduction is amazing. Cheesecake is terrible. Chocolate crunch and tiramisu were good.
  • Great food, great atmosphere, excellent service!!!
  • The blueberry steak is a must try Wow
  • We were ignored for 25 minutes. Then we left. So yeah good luck, I'm sure it's great!
  • Great place. Great steak. Great wine. This is the best place in town.
  • Start with the pasta and/or salad sampler. And for the main, balsamic steak or any one of the specials (they're always good).
  • Love their burrata. Great vegetarian pasta dishes.
  • The corkscrew linguini with ragu was awesome, smaller plates but definitely filling. All the pasta dishes are vegetarian.
  • Five course pasta tasting, all day
  • I can't just believe that this place named itself "an Italian restaurant". I've never had such bad experience. Risotto was overboiled. Sauce was from the cheap can. Shame on you, guys.
  • Great for dates. We had burrata, an arugula and pear salad, rigatoni with spicy tomato sauce and a filet mignon with a blueberry balsamic reduction. The steak was cooked perfectly and was delicious.
