The food here is excellent, but what I especially love is the decor and atmosphere. The restaurant is brand new, yet they did a fabulous job of giving the interior a private, "old world" feel, with different rooms. Families are welcome, but it's also a great restaurant to bring a date or celebrate an anniversary. The prices are reasonable and the staff are polite. There is plenty of parking. The location is ok; it's off exit 57 in Auburn, within walking distance from the Hilton Garden Inn. Overall, I like this place much better than other Italian restaurants.
