  • image Great little Italian restaurant in the heart of the nightlife on Bell Blvd. The food is to die for & it's perfectly priced for its value. What also impressed me was the knowledge of the food and wine that the waiters are willing to express. It's also a perfect venue for a date night, especially on New Year's Eve and Valentine's Day. Super romantic & cozy, yet it still has a vibrant atmosphere. Sarah K.
  • image The best birthday dinner I ever had! My mom found this place on Yelp while searching for Gluten Free options near the Hall Of Science where I was working a trade show. Dominick was fantastic to work with - expanding my reservation from 6 to 10 people throughout the day of the dinner! We were seated at a perfect table in the back, so we could hear the live music but still talk comfortably. Everyone's "regular" dishes looked amazing, and my gluten free pasta with sausage was incredible! They even allowed us to bring in our own cake, and we were able to stay at our leisure after and not feel rushed to free up the table. Really fantastic experience all around - I'll certainly be back!

  • image This place is excellent! The food is exceptional as is the service. The owner, Dominick, is very attentive and makes sure you have a great experience. I'll be back for sure! Giacomo A.
  • image Daniel and Erica were awesome. The food was fantastic. Veal Saltimboca was great. The risotto and warm antipasto was unbelievable Chris F.
