    One of the best Italian places in Charlotte. They have to go too if you're feeling like staying in.

    Best Italian I have had in Charlotte. Penne a la vodka and risotto cooked Al dente, and the risotto wasn't clumpy.

    Overall fantastic authentic Italian. Highly recommend the goat & mascarpone cheese appetizer. The angel hair w/ tomato basil + meatballs & fresh mozzarella was phenomenal. The cannolis were just okay.

    Try the new haven style pizza! We'll worth it, plus the other Italian dishes are awesome too!

    Small but imaginative menu of pastas, antipasti and pizza. Fresh mozzarella, breads, sausages and delish sauces. Read more

    Nutella pie tastes like Peanut Butter pie. Server said: Doesn't Nutella tastes like Peanut Butter?? Seriously.... anyways, the food here is nothing stellar, had better pasta in pizza places.

    The Shrimp and Crab Risotto is creamy and delicious. My pick when I'm NOT craving a marinara sauced dish.

    Knowledgable staff, very attentive! Loved the mushroom ravioli feorentine and their Don David Malbec. Dressing on the mama house salad-so good!! Sort of a hidden gem-vibrant and warm atmosphere!

    Great place! Make sure to sit at the pizza bar, and you'll not only save time (it's first come, first serve seating), but you'll be treated with random pizza samples from the pizza chefs!

    Tiramisu is the best I've had. Chicken Parm was awesome and their house salad dressing is worthy of buying a bottle to take home!
