Well first off the bread they just bring you for the table is phenomenal! Husband ordered a beer and I got a strawberry basil smash cocktail which is delicious though admittedly very sweet! I like sweet things but if you don't it might not be for you. We ordered the fresh fried mozzarella and all I can say is wow it's so good! As our main we got the classic margarita and it was excellent "crispy crunchy really fresh basil and that sauce everything is from scratch and it shows"-my husband on first slice! Damien our server was attentive and kind. This is a hidden gem for sure!

I found this place last minute for my birthday and I forgot it was a Saturday night, but the hosts, one of whom I think was the owner, were working so hard with how busy it was and still got us a booth in less than 20 minutes. There was a bit of wait for food, but this was understandable given how busy it was. We got the fried mozzarella to start, which was super yummy and the cheese pull was amazing! I got the ziti, which was so delicious!! I definitely will come back in the future and try their other menu items!

This was beyond amazing. The food was the best Italian cuisine I have had in a very long time. Reminded me of my grandmas home cooking which says a lot being from an Italian heritage. Our server Alexis I believe was her name was very attentive to our tables and surrounding tables. As well as the other staff so polite and friendly. I highly recommend this place. We will be back and often!!!!

Really good experience. Came on a slow time before dinner. Food was excellent, service was good, and the pricing was phenomenal for the quality. A little hot and stuffy in the place, but not too bad.

Delicious! Had the eggplant parmigiana and the meatball appetizer, both were incredible. The marinara sauce is very good and not bland like many other places. Monday is half priced wine too!

Best pasta bolognese I’ve had! Everything is made from scratch in house including their pasta. Try their Amelia cocktail, it’s a perfect combination of berries and vodka.

Kind staff, extremely kind waiter. However the food was lacking flavor and creativity. It wasn’t bad, but for the price it wasn’t worth it.

This is a solid Italian place. They're relatively new, so they have some kinks to work out in their set up and service, but the food was good and we'll probably visit again. We got a salad, the arancini, meatballs, and calamari to start. The salad was good, the meatball and arancini were okay, and the calamari was REALLY good. I loved the spicy marinara it came with and it was one of the best calamari dishes I've had in a while. Would definitely recommend this. For my main dish I got the margarita and added sausage, pepperoni, and onions. The server said the medium was a personal pie size, but it's not and definitely shareable. We all had to take ours home. The pizza was alright, but actually a lot better when I heated my leftovers up in the oven at home. My partner felt the same way about her gluten-free pizza, although she really enjoyed it at the restaurant as well. While I'm probably gonna try the pasta next time, my partner said her gluten free pizza, she got the margarita as well, was the best she's had in recent memory by far and wants to go back just for this. Everything was reasonably priced, the calamari was $14 for a huge portion. Pizza was a little on the high side if you want to add toppings, but not bad considering the size. The service from our waitress was great. The only complaint, as I've mentioned, is that they have a few kinks to work out. We received two different menus at a table of three, we had to repeat requests several times to different people, and our table wasn't wiped off when we were seated. But other than these minor things, it was a good experience and I'd recommend trying it out!

Best Pizza and Italian food I’ve had since I moved from New York. New place right near our house. Apparently the same people have a couple other places in Raleigh area (Cielle family). Good atmosphere to watch the game and get great authentic Italian food.
