    Best tasting Italian food I’ve had in a long time. Unassuming Italian restaurant in a strip mall and the food was delicious. I had chicken my wife tried the salmon. Both were prepared just right. We even had room for Lemoncelllo dessert! Service was quick and the place neat and clean.

    A small but pretty Italian's restaurant with a fair price and friendly service. We discovered this place the night while we were waiting to be seated in a restaurant nearby. It looks hardly unrecognizable from the outside as the plaza it located was dark and insufficient light. The food is just a-okay, though. Probably, the restaurant is recently opened in town because by the time we came in until the time we got out; there were only three tables including ours. We started with stuffed eggplant, Involtini Di Melanzane, and a side of salad that I forgot the name. The eggplant was stuffed with Ricotta, Parmigiana cheese and basil covered in the homemade tomato sauce and Mozzarella cheese. They are tasty but not impressive to me. For our main entrees, we had a colorful Penne Alla Vodka and a Pollo Parmigiana. The chicken breast was not dried nor rubbery but was not juicy as well. The side was sauteed vegetable including green squash, carrot, and broccoli. The pasta was sauteed with Italian bacon, a touch of vodka, chopped fresh tomato, basil, Marinara sauce and a little bit of cream. The pasta sauce was well-balanced, not too thick nor too creamy. They use the same marinara sauce for both two of our courses, I believe. With the fair price and an okay quality of food, I would think this restaurant is a reasonable choice to head for a regular Italian food craving.

    The food was good. I've been there for lunch and now dinner. The dinner prices are almost doubled but the waiter told me the dish was bigger for dinner. He wasn't kidding the dish is bigger but the serving is the same size as the lunch.

    This place was recommended from a friend and my husband and I were a little nervous when we pulled up for date night but were pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent, especially the sauces, probably the best we’ve ever had. We went on a week night and there were very few people there so the server was very attentive and the food was made to order. The server did say they get very busy on the weekends so definitely try to go on a week night for the best experience. I would 100% call this a hidden gem and will definitely be back!
