An absolutely decadent way to host a party, and the food was all delicious. The table shared several appetizers including fried calamari, and the carbonara with italian sausage was unbelievably good. We finished dinner with some fun dessert spreads as well! The staff was amazing and friendly and did a great job taking care of our party!

EDIT: Came for our anniversary dinner and received the same exceptional service and food. The burrata appetizer was delicious and creamy. My wife got the braised short ribs with gnocchi. I tried a bite and everything was so tender and flavorful. I got the cavatelli with shrimp. The shrimps were massive and plentiful! And again there was so much we have taken everything home for second dinner. This place deserves 10 stars! They make all of the pasta, bread, and sauces fresh in-house and you can tell. There is so much heart cooked into each dish. This would be our go-to restaurant if we lived here! Laura, our server, was so nice and made some fantastic recommendations! We got the herbed goat cheese and mascarpone crostini as an appetizer. Omg.. it was amazing! I got the gorgonzola gnocchi (which isn't on the menu so just ask about it) and my wife got the spaghetti carbonara. My gnocchi was so pillowy! And they did not scimp on the sauce. I wish I could have used the granulated garlic that was on the table, but everything was so flavorful we didn't need any extra spices. We had to get to-go boxes. It looked like we hardly touched our food, but we were so full.

10/10 the food here is absolutely amazing! Best Italian I’ve had in the area and I love how it is so casual and doesn’t make you feel like you have to be over dressed to be here. The ambiance was nice it was dim setting but you could still see your food. I asked for a slab of ricotta blend on top of my pasta most places won’t do it…. They delivered. Josh served us and he was very bubbly, funny, and friendly. I enjoyed the entire experience.

Food was overall very good. We ordered delivery - would suggest a couple of tweaks on takeout packaging. The cheesy surfaces of the garlic bread were packaged touching each other, so they stuck together and ended up peeling the cheese off of half of them. Packaging the arancini with the sauce made them soggy by the time we got them. Would have preferred the sauce packaged separately to prevent this and to also able to reheat the arancini in the air fryer for a couple of minutes. The mushroom tagliatelle and lemon ricotta cheesecake were excellent. Love that they have house made pasta. Would order again.

This place is unassuming from the outside and I’m so sad I didn’t try it sooner. It was wonderful. It has a very nice modern interior and the food was perfect! We got the baked ziti and the spaghetti carbonara and I already want it again. It was the best carbonara I’ve ever had. This will for sure be added into our rotation of places to eat

Great food! Great staff! Comfortable atmosphere. Not our first time here. Won't be our last. Calamari a little over breaded but still light and tasty. The pizza is great! Salads are always good. Good beer selection. Great wine selection. We like to sit at the bar and eat and drink.
