    The voodoo shrimp are a spicy must, tiramisu and a belli baci to top it up. Live music on weekends and the bar has full table service for a quicker experience. Around 50$ per person, great for a date!

    When you’re here, ya feel like family. The bar is great, opera singers perform in the dining room, and the food and cozy atmosphere are down-home, real-deal Italian. Read more

    Good eats. Friendly service. The place filled up by 6:30 on Friday so make sure to have a res. The singing and piano were high quality and not intrusive.

    The spaghetti is $21.95, and doesn't come with salad or soup, you can't have seperate checks, and bread is also extra. Miles the waiter needs lessons in exceeding expectations.

    The meatballs are bland at best, only taste the unseasoned bread crumbs. Marinara sauce is Bland and the bread? Come on? Purchased dinner rolls... Wow! Sad excuse for an Italian restaurant

    Food is delicious and comes quickly! A calming dining atmosphere but doesn't require anything more than jeans and a nice top!

    Great food and very personable wait staff. The manager and chef visiting tables checking on their guests is a very nice touch.
