The lights are dimmed and there are candles on the table. The food is very good. The special appetizer (portabella mushrooms with melted mozzarella and pesto sauce and pine nuts) tasted wonderfully Italian. We did not sample the wine, but there is a full bar. If you just want to sit at the bar, you can watch the action in the kitchen.
They offer a create you own pasta, so even the pickiest eater is satisfied. The vegetarian lasagna was excellent.
It's a great date place, but also casual enough to bring the family.
