The food here is authentic Italian. The food is fresh and homemade. Worth the long wait on Valentine’s!! Best Italian food hands down!
Continues to be the best place to eat in Westerville. A must visit for any Otterbein student, their family, or local residents who have yet to discover this hidden gem.
Food was absolutely amazing! My husband and I were recently in Italy and have looking for a restaurant that came close to real Italian food and this place nailed it!!! Will be back really soon!
Our second visit as a family, and definitely worth the drive! Started with the calamari, perfect! The Cardone salad is my favorite way to start my meal, and well worth the small upcharge. The salmon over pappardelle was as fantastic as remembered. We also had the mushroom risotto and the bucatini al americana. Finished with cannollis for a light dessert. The staff was attentive and friendly.
Great atmosphere. Let’s. Go. Back!
One of our favorite places for a relaxing night out. Always excellent.
Tried for the first time last night and can’t give this place enough stars. Comfortable atmosphere, incredible food, friendly staff… I highly recommend!
