This is the best Italian I've tried in this area. . . really beats the other Italian chain restaurant nearby where you have to wait an hour to be seated. We made reservations so there wasn't a long wait, but even without reservations I think we would've been seated prompty because the place wasn't too crowded. It was cozy and the live music was a nice touch. We had the calamari for our appetizer, which was perfectly cooked and delicous w/their tartar sauce. I had the pasta w/ mixed seafood (linguine torte mare), my friend had the parmesan crusted halibut, and our husbands both had the New York Steak. We always sample each other's foods and we all loved every dish on the table! The seafood was very fresh and cooked to perfection, the steaks were tender and juicy, and the sauces were fantastic. Service was good - very professional but not exactly the friendliest. Our server wasn't rude or anything, it just wouldn't hurt if he smiled a bit more. Maybe I've just been spoiled with how friendly and warm everyone usually is when dining out, and we dine out almost every weekend. All in all, this really is a ""hidden gem"" as the last reviewer stated. We'll definitely be back!
Pros: great food, not too crowded, live music, excellent prices
