AAA Inspector Notes
Nearly hidden in between stores of a shopping plaza is this nice surprise. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but I assure you that the food will make up for the lack of exterior luster. The dining room is small and narrow, which aids in painting a casually intimate ambiance. The arched walls are painted with murals of an Italian seaside town and the lighting is dim, like many Italian eateries. The chef makes everything from scratch to provide the most authentic dishes one can find. When available, the lobster ravioli is out of this world. The tilapia Livornese is absolutely delicious. The olives, capers and fresh tomatoes made for a flavorful meal that was complemented perfectly with a soothing glass of merlot. The staff knows their wine, too. The menu is not overwhelming as many Italian favorites are featured and the chef's homemade specialties are highlighted.
