I have not written on a message board ever, until now. A friend from college brought me to eat here and I have been a fan ever since. I don't know where that friend is now but I am grateful for her introducing me to one of Dallas's best kept secrets. The staff is really nice and the design is jeans/ shorts friendly, dimmed lights, hanging wine bottles and grapes and lots of booths. For the price, you get a LOT of GOOD food. I have tried to bring as many friends as I can out because, as you can see, they don't do a lot of advertising. I love the bread, calamari, ravioli, tortellini, lasagna and alfredo sauce. I also like that this isn't a chain so if you go regularly, they remember you. I think their food is better than Olive Garden and on par with Macaroni Grill but a better price! My husband used the restaurant in a scavenger hunt for the day of his proposal. Check this place out, I bet you'll like it too.
Pros: The parking lot is close by and you don't have to valet. The ""alcoholic drink"" prices are very reasonable.
Cons: They don't have the super fancy italian fusion dishes, just traditional Italian food. The desserts are so-so.
