My first date went well and i ended up asking my date to be my girlfriend, she said yes. Thank you, she enjoyed the vegan-friendly options and simple environment.

I liked the atmosphere and quiet nature of the place and the piano player was pretty good. The food was good and it wasn’t expensive at all

Overall, I had a nice time and the service was great. The price was that of a better quality of the food and that "extra refined" details, which this place didn't have. The utensils were like the ones you would find at the waffle house and the check was presented on a plastic tray. Again, overall I had a nice time and this place would definitely be a hidden gem if the prices were lowered about 25 ~ 30%. Or invest in better cutlery and a guest check jacket!

Amazing establishment. Very Romantic. The live piano playing, and candlelight on each table, plus great food, made for a very quiet, romantic experience.

We met our friends and their daughter here shortly after Christmas. We made a reservation even though at that time of year, I didn't think it was necessary. Glad we did! We would have waited for an hour or so from our reservation time of 6:45PM. The table was ready, in a location requested. The staff was great, close by, but never intrusive. Delicious food - salmon, red snapper and authentic Italian. Reasonably priced. Will return.

Took my wife here for our anniversary based on a previous dining experience. It did not disappoint. We were greeted and wished Happy Anniversary by the hostess. The service was attentive without being overbearing. (The guy filling our water glasses never stopped moving!) My wife had Fettuccine Alfredo and was wishing she could get the recipe. I had Angel Hair pasta with seafood which was very good as well. Another real plus about this place is that even though most tables were occupied, you could still speak softly and have a private conversation. There was not that low roar that is so common even in higher end restaurants these days. We will definitely be back.

This was our first time. Met out of town friends on a Friday evening. Everyone is very friendly. The service at the bar and table was excellent. Food was very good. My wife, not a big fish eater, ordered the trout and loved it. Prices are reasonable and the portions will fill anyone up. I am sure we will visit again even though we are 30-40 minutes away.

I ordered the scalopine de marsala. The dish has 4 thinly slices of veal in a marsala mushroom sauce, not a whole life. It's more line one round slice and it was cut in half to make it looked like4 pieces. I found the sauce a little overwhelming by the marsala wine. I love the four wedges of baked potatoes. It tasted real good and the boil or steam spinach is okay. It doesn't have a lot of flavor. And all that cost $27.95. I have had chicken marsala at Macaroni grill before and it tasted much better. The ambience is good, but I find the food overpriced. Our waiter was friendly, but I think he's trying too hard in being overfriendly. This probably my first and last time here.

What a great place. Entertaining an Italian from the Northeast, crossed my fingers, and picked this place. I expected the worst review from him. He thought it was amazing. He got the special seafood plate. I had the lasagna bolognese. Great job, guys. Don’t get scared by a strip center, place is legit.
