Kick off your meal with warm, crusty bread served in a paper sack, then feast on a hearty serving of pasta, a sub or a panini. The dining room commands a fine view of the Ohio River and the skyline of downtown Louisville. During Thunder Over Louisville, the annual fireworks show held before the Kentucky Derby, this restaurant is packed. As an alternative, try a signature pizza such as the Florentine, topped with spinach and pesto, or the Giuseppe, topped with roasted chicken and artichoke hearts. This friendly, informal spot treats you to fine views of the Ohio River.
