Description of Restaurant:

Step through the door and you have the feeling that you have come to the right place is apparent.

It's swanky, it's upbeat and it's for real.  Antique mirrors, terra-cotta walls, Italian ceramics, and you feel this is YOUR neighborhood restaurant to enjoy, with the bustle of the bar and the roar of the crowd.  It's fun, it's alive, and it's Italian.

An upstairs dining room can accommodate a private party of 60, while the downstairs space boasts of an old world plaster molded ceiling with hand painted light fixtures.

Now get cozy as you sip your second martini, because you're about to be fed the food that pleases your soul -- Italian for the millennium.
