It's all about the “romantic feel” at this Village Italian “slice of heaven” purveying “enjoyable” , “affordable” light bites and standout desserts in “quaint” quarters lit by a fireplace and “lantern-filled” garden; “live jazz” in the adjoining bar adds further “first-date” appeal.

Such a hidden gem in the city, I've been there a few times before I even realized how big the place is. Up front is a nice little coffee shop/tavern feeling with a nice romantic fire. In the back is a greenhouse setting with nice plants, amazing iron work, and a lot of light. Down stairs is like a different world, a band was play nice jazz music. I make it a point to try to go there for desert or dinner anytime I get a chance. The prices are amazing for the value you get, makes you feel like you overpaid for your dinner elsewhere when you stop in for desert. Great date spot. One time a waiter did kinda suck though, he definitely was heated about someone he was texting and seemed to forget he was working, quickly apologized when he came too. Great staff otherwise.

Love the ambience of this place. Walk into a cozy fireplace with aroma of deliciousness prickling your nose. Inner seating area offers space for small group or, intimate dinner for two. Pesto lasagna, pizza to chocolate eclair are easy to chow down.

It’s a nice and cozy restaurant, my experience here was quite pleasant. The pizze and lasagna here are very delicious and well prepared. They also have a nice collection of wine as well. Only thing they could improve is the lighting inside, its way too dark to even read the menu. Other than that my experience was very nice and I would definitely come to this place once again.
