Excellent, affordable, friendly 11/13/2009

It's so easy for Italian food to be awful and overpriced. But this is one of the best I've been to. I'd say it was up there with Supper for affordable Italian. The location is a little inconvenient but at least there aren't a bunch of downtown D-Bs crowding the place. Pros: Friendly waiters, delcious food and Lambrusco Cons: Seriously none more

Good solid food - Always easy to get into on the weekend 3/22/2008

This is a place serving food with alot of love. The prices and quality are well matched and the wine list is well priced. The Cabernet Franc is the best wine on the menu. Pros: Easy to get into on the weekend - good food and wine Cons: Service could be kicked up a notch more

An Enjoyable Slice of Modena 3/18/2008

New restaurant focused on cuisine in the Modena region of Italy. Start with the Lambrusco "champagne" as an apertif it is unusual and tasty. The lambrusco goes well with Gnocco fritto and prosciutto di parma. We also tried the eggplant and goat cheese which was good. Wine list is short (with all available by the glass) and also focused on Modena and solid. They do a good job of letting you sample a number of wines to figure out what you like and we ended up with a nice sangiovese. Appetizers were tried were good and then focus on the pastas which is what they are known for. I had the tortelloni di pollo (truffle olive oil and chicken and wild mushrooms) and my wife had a pork ravioli that was quite nice. Chef/owner stopped by to say hello and provide some background on certain dishes. An enjoyable slide of Modena at a very reasonable price. more

Fantastic food, fresh pasta, friendly staff, well priced wine 2/7/2008

Had dinner here for a friend's birthday last night. Restaurant was quite empty upon arrival, but quickly filled. The wait staff were extremely friendly and attentive. Lambrusco was very tasty and at only $30/bottle, can't be beat. Had the fritters and meat for an appetizer...fried pieces of heaven with thin sliced meats. Fresh pasta for the main course, and the profiteroles for dessert. Took our time finishing the wine, and never felt rushed Every aspect of this venue was great - including the old school Italy pictures on the walls, and the locked case of balsamic vinegars. Definitely going back. Pros: pasta, wine, staff more

Bar/lounge area McDonald's Happyland? Only yuppie parents know for sure. 7/14/2007

When is the bar/lounge area of a restaurant McDonald?s Happyland for toddlers? Only yuppie parents know for sure. Visited this place last week for their very good and reasonably priced tortelloni and some Lambrusco. Specifically chose a seat 1) on the other side of the restaurant from a yuppie family with toddler and 2) right next to the bar/lounge area. But the plan for a relaxing dinner was foiled when yuppie parents decided to deal with toddler?s boredom by trotting back and forth with her throughout the length of the restaurant, and playing with her in the bar/lounge area right next to our table. Skipped dessert and left. more

good food, poor service, unclean floors 5/21/2007

went for lunch closer to 2pm. hostess/waitress was unfriendly and uninterested. she had marginal english skills that she didn't compensate with better service or care. she walked away after taking only two of the four drink orders. didn't return with the drinks or water for more than the usual wait, the young male server although he tried, spilled the frutta de mare on my mother. the salmon on a bed of spinach was edible nothing exciting, the goat cheese ravioli was delicious, my tagliolini with sundried toms, chix and pignoli nuts was passable. the pasta was fresh which was enjoyable, the seasonings were mild at best and overall unmemorable. when the male server cleared the table he dropped mussel shells on my sister (a mere accident). it was a chore to get water, napkins and a bit more bread. the floor were unpleasant even though it was after the lunch rush it wasn't a very inviting space to dine. when the bathrooms are more memorable than the meal or the service, it's probably one you want to pass on. i am the forgiving type and will apply the 'must be an off day' but this day's visit wasn't the case. Pros: inexpensive, good lambrusco choices Cons: poor service, boring atmosphere more

Good Italian for price 10/18/2006

For the price and quality of food, i would recommend this place. I tried the Tortelloni and it's very good. Also tried their tuna pasta special at evening. Althought the tuna was a bit on the fishy side, the pasta and sauce made up for it--it was really good. It's tasty but still light, not heavy like a lot of other Italian restaurants. Service is friendly. It may have been because of a weekday dinner, but it was relaxing and I didn't feel rushed at all. Don't expect to feel like "fine" dining but i think it's great for a casual night out. I would definitely go back. Pros: Price, food more
