Great food with an authentic atmosphere. And the drinks were pretty good as well :) Very glad that the staff attempted to accommodate our large group, which didn't seem to happen often here. We felt it more at checkout vs. ordering, but we enjoyed ourselves none the less.

Above average italian food in general. Some of the best I have found in the area. Wife and I had the Fettuccine con Pollo and I had the Mannino Tortellini. Both were very good and highly recommendable. The Calimari appetizer was okay. A little heavy on the breading, but still tasted decent. Tiramisu was also very good.
