Description:

In a stand-alone house setting, with a lush plant-filled open patio, the ambiance is upscale yet relaxing--creating a fine atmosphere for dining. As for the menu, the cuisine keeps everything under an Italian umbrella, opening with antipasto like tomato and mozzarella, clams Casino and Minnestrone soup. The pasta possibilities are a bit limited with only eight plates from which to choose--but the selection does include gnocchi, linguine and fettuccine, so most fans of Neapolitan noodles still have a good chance to find one of their liking. Veal, chicken, seafood and eggplant make the entrée main ingredients--all of which can be had done in Francaise, Marsala, Piccata, Parmigiana and other styles of Neapolitan cooking.

Critic review

At this hospitable Italian restaurant, the main draw is house-made ravioli, which may be ordered with any number of fillings. You can have them as an appetizer or a main dish in such varieites as cheese, spinach, meat, porcini mushroom, duck and even pumpkin. Sauces range from the simple tomato or Bolognese (meat) to the rococco Triple Sec cream and Dijon brandy.

There are also such Italian standards as shrimp francese, chicken marsala and angel hair pasta with meat balls.
