    Won't Dissapoint !

    This place has really good rustic Italian food that is well priced, well staffed, and very cozy. My first experience here was very pleasant. You'll feel like a "regular", even if your a first-timer. We ate there on a Thursday night, because I heard of thier 3-course, $20 prix fixe menu. Wow! My grilled Octopus salad, mustard Salmon-w/ sauteed potatoes and brocolli, and homemade dessert was delicious from start to finish...and it was all for only $20! (the first two were specials) I tasted all of my roommates food, and it was also very good! Neither of us had anything from the pasta menu, but why would we? I mean, anyone can buy some gourmet pasta and sauce to make at home - I think the mark of a trully good Italian restaurant is what they do with the food that doesnt involve pasta. Anyway, just eat there... Or don't (there will be less people I need to compete with for a table) All I know is that if you do, you'll return. The good food, prompt service, and casual, fine-dining experience makes this place great any night! P.S. No, I don't work here.

    Always Good

    Very consistent with there food and service. The atmosphere has that local charm, many regular customers. The servers make you feel very comfortable. The quality of food is great, all fresh ingredients. The chef does play it safe with the dishes. You will not find too much creativity on the menu which is not at all negative. The chef really knows what he is doing behind the kitchen. Everything ordered was cooked perfectly. I keep going back to this place and never had a negative experience.

    Great local Italian place

    Love this place - authentic Tuscan food - so no pizza here. But instead - great pastas, and a nice listing of entrees. The menu changes frequently - so you can always count on great seasonal dishes. Wine list is also to be recommended. Pre Fixe on Thrusdays is a great deal - $20 for a three piece meal.
