Decent !!!

It was one of my cousins' birthday and we decided to surprise her by taking her to Chianti. The 1st thing that the name brought to my mind was Hannibal Lecter's famous dialogue from the movie, The Silence of the Lambs -- "A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti". Whether your imagination runs wild or not, fear not, what we ate was nothing as gruesome as that :P !!

Chianti is a place with a cosy ambiance and pleasant decor. We are greeted by a bar counter of sorts and very courteous staff as we enter and are soon ushered to a table for 5. The glasses are filled with water, the menu soon arrives and we get busy perusing it. They also provide 2 complimentary bread baskets- One, a D-I-Y garlic bread option { with toasted bread, garlic, miniature tomatoes, basil leaves, olive oil and an instruction chart } and the other containing real soft, melt-in-your-mouth type bread & a bun with some nice "spiced" butter. I must add that my attempt at making the garlic bread was a catastrophe !

For starters (pun intended :D), we ordered -the Funghi Al Forno and the Chicken Crostini. The former came, prettily decorated, with around 8-9 UFO-shaped mushrooms, tiny drops of sauce & other garnishing and a nice salad that contained tasty sun-dried tomatoes. The mushrooms were soft and hot (temperature-wise) inside, easy on the palate. The latter, looked like the garlic bread with toppings that one comes across at Pizza Hut. Ironically, taste-wise, I now personally rate the PH option higher though it is veg. But let me add that this could also be due to my lack of familiarity with Italian cuisine, which till date has been restricted to Pizzas & Lasagnes. There were some mocktails added to the mix though and there isn't anything to write about them. They're mocktails !!!

We then navigated towards the Main course and out came - Chicken Canelloni, Chicken Lasagne (no prize for guessing who ordered it :P), Pollo Alla Parmigiana for the carnivores and Pizza Rustica & Ravioli DI Spinaci E Ricotta with Four-Cheese Sauce for the others. I would say that there was no real stand-out dish among these and we felt that the Pizza Rustica came close to taking the cake (if that's possible :P !!). The tastes of Canelloni and Lasagne could not really be differentiated except maybe for the fact that the Canelloni had extra cheese. Maybe a person with a discerning tongue for Italian cuisine might have a better opinion. The Pollo Alla Parmigiana too wasn't anything spectacular.

Since it was a birthday dinner, we did not order any individual desserts and instead, had pre-ordered a half-kg cake from the restaurant. They had just 3 options - Chocolate, Vanilla and Strawberry and we opted for the Chocolate Cake. The cake was quite nice, though not exceptional and being just half-kg, the 5 of us managed to polish it off, including the usual tradition of "polishing" the b'day girl's face with some cake :P !

Ultimately, this turned in to a situation of classical dilemma. Was it a good or bad experience ? I'd maybe still reserve my judgement, considering the largely rave reviews by others. Maybe it was their off day or our choices of dishes could've been better. Another visit might resolve this dilemma.

So like they say in Italy - Buon Appetito and Arrivederci :) !!!

Not Italian and total waste of money...

Its a place with cool ambiance but its not worth spending there.

TOO much limitations in the menu.Horrible no options for vegetarians.

Menu and lighting was the horrible.
Lame selection of wines ans very less. There is no single dish without vegetarian ingredient.

Meat and Seafood dishes with all cheese and tomato bases with few herbs does not give any difference

No value for money and less desserts option..a

Melbourne and Los Angeles Italian food is the best.. Bangalore has crap Italian and other cuisine..

People eat whatever looks attractive and they throw money. THey love to get cheated in India.
Unhealthy and not satisfying. TIRIMUSU was horrible... Will not visit again.

Heavenly

Had been here the day before for a team lunch. Must say, the food is HEAVEN. Especially coming from a foodie, it is saying something. The complimentary 'make-your-own'garlic-bread' is an indication of what's in store. An Italian joint with as many options for a veggie as for a non !! comparatively, the starters were just good. The main course and desert is what you need to binge on here. Ordered a penne in red gravy, my bad I expected it to be gravylicious and ended up ordering the veg lasagna as well. Unique taste, right mix of bland and spice .. Was fingerlicking good. Though not many choices for desert, but you are spoilt for choice when you read the description. The ambiance and the courteous staff added to the experience .. Will surely go on a weekend to try the wines :) Best part : interestingly priced. Did I mention, you can choose whether to go for a 2/3 course meal during lunch ? Looks like it will be difficult to dislodge from my top 5 favourite joints ...

Good and Relaxing Italian Food

Relaxing place for lunch or dinner. Small yet well utilized place. Chianti is an absolute bliss. I have been here a couple of times and it has only gotten better.

They offered bruschetta as complimentary. Simple but starts awakening your taste buds.

We ordered a broccoli soup and a mushroom soup.
Insalata di funghi de pere, read mushroom and pear salad.

I love mushrooms but the broccoli soup was soothing. Perfect amount of cheese. Loved it. Mushroom soup was good too.
The breads they serve with soup, always soft and fresh. I suggest they start selling them ;) :)

Mushroom and pear salad - Oh what do I say. My love for salads is very recent and this one is going to be my bar for measuring the rest. Very tasty and healthy salad. The sweetness of the pear and the generosity of lettuce, occasional bit on the mushrooms - Oh so divine!!!

For main course, we had
Gnocchi de patate with four cheese sauce
Fettucine ala bolognese - with chicken instead of beef, picata di pesce but with a lemon sauce (as one of my friend is allergic to fish) and pollo al ripeni.

Fettuchine was good. Nicely done. Nice sauce.
Gnocchi - Four cheese sauce - was really good. Nice drizzle of olive oil. I am not sure if I do not like gnocchis or if their gnocchi could be better. Its definitely lighter than most of the gnocchis I had. One saving grace. But it could have had a bit more salt.
Pollo al ripeni - presentation was impeccable. Presentation was better than the taste.
Picata - Basa grill - Unbelieveable. Why didn't I see this first!!! Amazing food. I kept digging with no shame into my friends plate. Basa was so soft filled with mild flavours. The lemon sauce perfectly complemented the fish.The mashed potato was perfect.

The taste that still lingers is the mushroom and pear salad :) Stole the show .

All above @ less than Rs 3000.

In Love With This Restaurant

This place is run by our friend Vamsi, and we had a taster of the menu prior to the restaurant opening.. I am the biggest fan of the stuffed ravioli with the butter sage sauce.. Its to die for. Don't forget to indulge in sangria's , they are fantastic.. The staff is courteous and pleasant. Keep some room in your tummy, for Dolce.. ( desert) The mango cheese cake and the pannacotta are our favorites! We keep going back here time and again!!!!!!

Italian Luxury!

A beautiful place. A very somber place with absolutely nothing loud about it. I've been here twice and both the times I've gone back wanting to come back again. The unique thing about this place is that the typical bread basket is actually - make your own bruchetta!. There is nothing exceptional about the taste but the experience says it all.
Great italian food. Try the pesto pasta here. simple, light and just right! The fish is also supposed to be out of this world!
For me the only dessert which stood out was the Panna Cotta.
Overall a great place for a quite dinner.

Great Food And Gracious Host

We were driving by on the road towards Jyoti Niwas College and we landed up at this warm and lovely place.

We were greeted by a gentleman who seemed to be the owner of the place. A smile was in place. The servers then took us around and asked us to select a suitable location.

The place has 2 sections: Open [With Fans] and Air Conditioned. Unfortunately the Air Conditioned section had an aroma of something that was too strong for me to have a relaxed Saturday Brunch. We/I chose the Open section.
Fresh breads, lovely pastas and excellent pizzas. Highly recommended.
Also the desserts selection is ultra supreme.

It's a must visit for food lovers !

Had been here last night for my surprise b'day dinner with prior reservation by hubby and I was super pleased !!!

We started with Crostini Chicken which was basically bruschetta. The bread was crunchy and topping contained very distinct flavours.. We indulged royally. For mains , I chose Chicken in Salsa Di Vino - one portion of chicken breast tossed in white wine sauce ,capers and lemon served with Mashed Potato and sauteed veges...The dish was so light and delicious that I gobbled it down within minutes :P
We also ordered a Chicken breast stuffed with Mozzarella and herbs.. That too was super delicious with the right amount of marination and simply wow flavours...

They also have this complimentary bread basket which has this awsomest butter spread i have ever had... Since the food is very light , one may tend to overeat here.. With the b'day cake at home , we gave the desserts a miss !

A must mention would be the Service of all the stewards and the Manager .. I am yet to come across a place where ALL the staff have a perpetual smiling face !! Its a must must visit for those who truly enjoy Continental food !! We will be here again soon :)

PS : Since the 2nd Main took a little longer than usual , the Manager served us complimentary soup ,which I greatly appreciate ! It showcases they value time and is also a very courteous gesture ... Keep it up Chianti !!!!! :)

Nothing Italian about this place

After reading the rave reviews we decided to go to this place for a special occasion dinner. I heard that the place is nice and cosy but I found it rather crowded and given the fact that its closed from all sides it does tend to get noisy with even 80% occupancy. I also read that the place has outdoor seating but there isn't anything outdoorsy to the outdoor sitting.

Nevertheless not to judge the book by its cover we decided to order the food and let the restaurant have a fair chance to justify the reviews. After ordering the drinks from the long wine list we got a complementary 'make your own bruschetta platter'. The platter had 3 slices of bread and 3 halves of cherry tomatoes, now I know the dish was complementary and you shouldn't ask for too much of free food, but 3 halves of cherry tomatoes was a little too less. We ordered a salad and crostini for the starters. The salad was ok but there was no trace of extra virgin olive oil in the salad infact we were not even sure if the vegetables were actually grilled in olive oil. The crostini was tasty but was a indianised version with lot of cheese. The food came with a complementary bread basket which was by far the best dish on the table. The rolls were really soft and fresh. The mains were so so too.. The stuffing in the cannelloni was good however the oil in my spaghetti actually gave me a throat pain.

All in all I found this place a very pricey indianised version of the Italian food. The only Europian part of the whole deal was the smaller portions. I don't think we are going back there again.

Stellar!

Went there for dinner a couple of weeks back but just about found time to review. The experience was just 'perfect' from the word go. Loved the ambiance and decor, the polite smiling staff but most of all the food. Both of us are huge Italian fans and are always on the lookout for nice Italian restaurants. We ordered chicken crostinis for starters and ordered our wines to go with the food. They have a nice selection of local and foreign wines but a limited food menu. The crostinis were nice and had a lot of bite. For mains I ordered non veg Canneloni (never had it before) and my husband ordered Chicken Parmigiana. The portions were decent and the food tasted yummy. My Canneloni was actually a soft roll stuffed with cheese and chicken in tomato sauce, it was quite heavenly and felt fresh. My husband's chicken parmigiana was also nice though nothing exceptional. Though not much of a dessert person I just love Italian desserts and had to go for it...we ordered tiramisu and Mango cheese cake. Both left us drooling. The cheese cake in particular was just melt in the mouth soft and very yummy. The 'stellar' adjective to a great extent is because of the amazing desserts we had there. Will love to be back soon.

Ambiance, taste, pleasant people, beautiful. yum!

On the number of recommendations, we finally decide to go to Chianti.

Three things that you'll note once you are in:
1. Everyone's got a smile. All the time!
2. The interiors are very well done. Gives you a rich and an elegant feel. (Us guys in shorts and tees made us feel under-dressed)
3. The interesting looking bottle on the table that had vinegar and olive oil.

We sit, the menu arrives, we read..., well, try to. The names of all the dishes were in Italian (I'm guessing), we had noo idea how things were pronounced! Seeing the expressions on our face a gentleman comes to us and explains the whole menu and suggests us food. We place our order which is :: Gamberi Alla Grigilia (Grilled Tiger Prawns), Pizza di Pollo alla Grigilia (Chicken Pizza), Pizza Proucito Ai Funghi (Bacon Pizza), Pollo in Salsa Di Vino (Beef Steak), Tagliata di Filetto (Chicken Steak) and a Tiramisu. While confirming the order, the waiter actually reads back the italian names making us ask him a couple of times to confirm the order..., in english.

Estimated time's around 20 minutes. While the wait, we get some bread, and some fresh veggies on the table. We then start to munch on the bread and then they place a "Make your own Chianti Bruchetta" note. Quite an interesting past-time I must admit, though we sucked at making the bread last in 1 peice till it was prepared, we did have fun and yes, our Bruchetta was better than the best :]

Once that was over, enter, the Bread Basket. Couple of soup sticks and some really soft flavored bread and a mayo dip. I'd asked for a garlic mayo dip and they served some weird dip which had no garlic in it though, not that I died, so it's cool).

They, then get us our order, starting with the tiger prawns. (I'm sorry, re-typing the whole italian names are a pain and hence I refuse to do so!) Serving portion is 4 prawns. Huge prawns, beautifully served, seriously soft meat and it was yum!

Next, the pizzas, 10 inch diameter, thin crispy crust, topped with adequate amount of chicken, bacon etc, and then the extra oregano, chilli flakes, olive oil etc, makes it all the more awesome

Beef steak, again, another 'beautiful' looking dish, each slice served to everyone's plate. Initially, kinda felt dry but then they brought the extra sauce and made it tasty as well. Seeing the beef steak, one of us (who can't have beef) wanted to try something similar and hence the chicken steak.

Enter, chicken steak. Mistake. Shouldn't have ordered is what we realized. The meat was kinda rubbery and tasteless. (It is the breast though, you cannot expect anything more)

Next was our dessert. Now since we've ordered quite a lot and we do not have such kinda money, we decided to order 1 Tiramisu. Small in size, ok in taste. Nothing great.

And we are done.

Goods :: Ambiance, taste, pleasant people around you, beautiful presentations and the Brushetta.
Bads :: Poor serving portions(the beef steak was soo small and so was dessert!). They should use the generic 'english' names as well. While confirming the orders and also in the final bill.

Good Italian, but on the expensive side

The place is relatively small, but has a nice and cosy feeling to it. It is quite well done up, with even the restrooms looking neat and chic. The tables are a bit close together in the inner section, they should look at rearranging it.
As we arrived pretty late, we went straight for the main course ordering Fusilli Primavera and Picata di Pesce which was grilled sea bass. In the meantime, they served us complementary do-it-yourself bruschetta. I would have preferred some warm bread with olive oil, but this was decent too.
We did not order drinks but noticed that the wine list was pretty good and the prices of at least the local varieties was reasonable.
The food arrived and it was quite delicious. The food was well presented - the fish came with a few grated vegetables on top of a cup of butter-garlic mashed potato and it all tasted good. The fusilli too was done just about right. The service was pretty good, though they took some time to come round at the end when we wanted to ask for the check. We plan to visit again and have a proper multi-course meal.
The only complaint was that the menu's prices do not include taxes so in the final reckoning, the place is a bit expensive for what they have on offer.

Excellent, excellent, excellent

Brilliant food, excellent staff, amazing ambiance.
Must go for any Italian food lover in Bangalore.
For me and my wife, it was a blast from the past as one of the owners' happens to be the person who was working in Fiorano, which was closed sometime back. And we were amazingly surprised to see him here.
Worth every penny you spend here!!!

Nice Place - Good steaks & starters

Not in a great mood to write a detailed rev.The Tagliata Di Filetto was just great - just done right.Wine selection seems good (maybe adequate if u r a bubbly-snob).The cannelloni was nice (according to my wife) -a bit too chewey for me , not punishingly so, maybe it's a d'ffrent strokes thing.Keep it up guys, moi might pop in some time soon.

Patience and enthusiasm!

Chianti allowed me and a friend to sit for half an hour at lunch time on a Saturday, without ordering anything except a drink. I have rarely found restaurants that comfortably allow this.

The waiters were discreet, the drinks were good, but the food was just so-so.

However, I am sure they will improve a whole lot because of their enthusiasm.
The make-your-own-bruschetta idea was funky! Although not very great.

I'd suggest 2 things that need improvement soon:
1. Please do not nuke your breads. Let them even be soft, but not over-crisp.
2. The bar should be inside, and not right at the entrance. Looks somewhat like a liquor store.

Reasonable - ambience, taste & pricing

This was our first time at Chianti. We weren't too hungry so had decided to stick to 2 main course dishes only. However they have a practice of serving a complimentary Bruschetta and bread basket. Well the breads were excellent and we polished off everything by the time our order came!

We had ordered for Fettuccine Sicilian Chicken pasta and Chicken Lasagna. The former wasn't that great, lacked as much sauce as I would have preferred and the flavour too was one dimensional.The Lasagna was good and both of us liked it. Of course stand alone the lasagna might have hit the below the happy note.

The service was prompt, quick and courteous. I felt that the boys did a good job with a nice smile on always. The ambiance isn't too special, felt that it was a wee bit cramped with too many tables set up, making the whole place a noisy little coop.

Well if a hunger for Italian sets in we would be heading for the Spaghetti Kitchen or Little Italy next time!

Authentic Italian cuisine

After reading so many positive reviews on Burrp, we decided to take a plunge. We got a table booked for the evening.
The first impression was that the restaurant appeared too small. May be we expected something different. The ambience was warm and comfortable.
Quickly ordered two glasses of shiraz cabarnet and then appeared the DIY bruschetta. Thankfully with a small guide. Was quite interesting to do this exercise.
We ordered baked mushrooms as starters and ravioli with spinach and mushroom cream and fettucine siciliana for the main course. The starter arrived in few minutes and was yummy. It was accompanied with bread and soup sticks. The bread was just heavenly. The addition of olive oil raised the bar. we were really enjoying the meal. The wine was good too.
The main course also arrived and we were quite impressed by the quantity. We were actually skeptical about the same. But i feel the price is justified for the quantity, taste and ambience. Ravioli was buttery and the stuffed spinach had a gentle hint of flavour. The mushrooms soaked in the cream were delicious. Fettucine was quite tangy due to sun dried tomatoes and complimented the wine really well. Meanwhile we ordered a refill of the wine and this took quite some time. We ordered tiramisu for the desert and had to wait nearly 20 min for the same. This was the only negative in the whole dining experience. All in all a good dining experience. Definitely recommended and another visit is due soon.

THE restaurant in Bangalore

I've been to a lot of restaurants in Bangalore. However, this would rank as the best experience I've had. The food is brilliant, the ambiance amazing, and the staff really good.

Have the pork chops and the drop dead delicious Tiramisu for sure. This is a place I will go back to time and again

Wonderfully good find

Had great meal here. Good italian food in this small little restaurant tucked away in Koramangala. The fresh bread basket we were served was to die for. We tried a pasta and a another dish and both were so done just perfectly. Very home style not too restauranty and heavy.
Service is knowledgeable and not too pushy which is a welcome relief. Loved the decor and italian music also. Found this restaurant thanks to Burrp. Selfishly I almost dont want to post this review....keep it a secret that I go back to. Yum Yum.

Yummy Italian

Thanks to a dear friend ... discovered the tasty offerings at Chianti.
We opted for the 3 ccourse meal (Starter/Soup, main course and dessert) priced at 450+taxes! A tad expensive, but well wasnt a let down !
Quite a few veggie options available, however deciphering the menu was a little difficult. Narrowed down from th menu with the waiter's choice.
An eggplant (with a crubmly coating) was an interesting starter ... have never tried something like this before. Main course of Fusili with veggies in white sauce another yumm dish - i dont really remember the name of the dish. The fusili however cud have been cookde a little better ! Thebest part however was the dessert. Amongst the 3 friends, we tried Tiramisu, Choc mudpie and the Mango cheesecake - each of them were in a league of its own.
Well how i can forget mentioning about the 'Make your own Bruschetta' on the house.
A pleasant experience at Chianti.

Small Italian Gem!

Always up for new dining experiences near our hotel - I walked over last night to try Chianti after seeing our driver go past it earlier in the day on the way to the office - a very pleasant experience awaited me - from the make-your-own bruschetta /with instructions with humor; to the stuffed chicken breast along with nice candle-lit tables and enjoyable music - and on top of that -servers and waiters that were pleasant, warm, smiling, and who knew their menu - I will come back and I will recommend this to my co-workers! Thank you!

Buon Cibo -- Good Food.. Absolutely Italian..!!

Been there for dinner last weekend. The restaurant was packed which is a good sign of the things to come i.e. food..!!, & the ambience.. good..!! The bruschetta activity keeps you busy while your order arrives. The waiters were very courteous and explained almost every single ingredient of the order before the order was actually placed & since they had prior experience at an italian restaurant they were truly hands on.. Priced upmarket but worth every penny, would surely recommend this place for a good Italian meal.

must try

The bruschetta eating activity as a plate cleanser gets you involved in the meal right from the start. The bread basket is to die for with pesto flavoured butter, FTV thin cheese soup sticks n warm bread. The down side - hogging on the warm bread will fill you up too early to enjoy the rest of the meals. They position themselves as a wine bar , so there is no other type of alcohol available. Mocktails are passable. The real deal is with the salads n the main course. The taste, freshness n plating seem as if they are right of the Aussie Masterchef kitchen. The mebu n food definitely feel more authentic Italian. Definitely worth a visit. My recommendation is the Chicken parmigiana.

Great Tasting food

Burrp was instrumental in getting me here on a saturday night and in all fairness the reviews did not disappoint.The menu is entirely italian with somewhat spartan choices in non-veg in the anti pasti section.The wine sangria was nice and refreshing, though we have had better ones in past.We ordered for a barbecue pizza which turned out to be very nice.The only grouse was the fact that the pizza was little soggy in the centre.Next came the dish which was undoubtedly the star of the evening,pan grilled basa with vegetables.The basa came grilled, with garden vegetables and a light shrimp sauce.The taste was really good with the lemony tang going in perfect unison with the slightly pungent smell of the shrimp sauce.
We rounded off the mean with the days special desert, pannacota with carrot cake.The desert was again a winner and we returned quite satisfied with our new find.
final verdict : must go

Delicious food!

I stepped into Chianti with trepidation, as I thought it would be just another wannabe Italian joint. But I was pleasantly surprised!
The steward who served us was courteous and attentive, without being overbearing. Their breadbasket had some of the softest, tastiest breads and light, crumbly breadsticks.
We ordered a barbecue pizza and a chicken in a lemon and olive sauce. Both were flavorsome. The pizza had a light, thin crust, which was just perfect. The chicken was very well done too, with a delicious sauce.
The steward had very helpfully also suggested some good wines to go with the food.
We had panacotta for dessert, which was not too bad.
All in all, a pretty good experience. And it is not over-priced either.

Must try

Nestled in the heart of the melting pot of cuisines aka Koramangala, Chianti can be easily missed if you dont pay attention. It is located near Sukh Sagar at Koramangala.
We were driving by on the road towards Jyoti Niwas College and we landed up at this warm and lovely place.
We were greeted by a gentleman who seemed to be the owner of the place. A smile was in place. The servers then took us around and asked us to select a suitable location.
The place has 2 sections: Open [With Fans] and Air Conditioned. Unfortunately the Air Conditioned section had an aroma of something that was too strong for me to have a relaxed Saturday Brunch. We/I chose the Open section.
A make- your- bruschetta plate greeted us. It has 2-3 slices of toasted bread which seemed like a Baguette, Garlic pods, Fresh Basil, tomatoes and Olive oil. I came to rescue to the pati who was confused to see the a rather awkward selection of random veggies on a tray. I rubbed a garlic pod on the bread, put a few drops of olive oil, bruised the basil and layered it on top and added the Tomatoes. Then came some salt and pepper and more olive oil. As simple as it is seems, it tastes divine. Garlic- Basil – Olive Oil is a marriage made in heaven.
We ordered a Ceaser’s salad with grilled chicken and a green salad with fresh mozzarella. Both of them were DIVINE.
We also got a basket of fresh breads. One seemed like a small roll of cibata bread, another was herb-ed bread and a few lovely soup sticks. The herb butter was a revelation.
The minestrone soup was a let down. It was a flimsy broth and lacked a note worthy flavor.
The Chenin blanc didnt let us down as it was our regular brand.
We ordered a Rustica Pizza next and to me surprise it was soaked in the veggie and cheese juices in the center. That rendered it to be not so pleasant. However the flavors were bang on.
The dessert was to die for. Peanut butter chocolate mousse with Banana tuile. Very very highly recommended.
We were informed that the chef was previously working for Tuscano and has now joined here. Works well for us.
We paid 2K for all the meal stated above. Seemed like a bargain to me.

Authentic Italian

Excellent food, great service, though you get the feeling at times that the waiters are trying a bit too hard. But the Penne was great.. seasoned just perfectly and it was a relief not to get tomato puree on it. The Basa in Lemon and white wine sauce was also awesome!

Dine in style the mob way

New Italian addition in town . Love their ambience . Reminded me of those Italian mobs having their meal. Long table set up is pretty nice with a chandelier dropping down. They do have open are so it was pretty nice to smoke while eating. My experience here was very nice. Totally happy with the place. Going back again

Excellent Italiano food!!!

Good, wholesome and delicious food with a wine list to match. The setting is homely and classy at the same time. Outdoor seating as an option was very good to see. Tried the pizzas, a pasta and Deserts. Very delicious. Had some great red wine to go along with the food. Great Itialan food at affordable prices and a serene atmosphere. Good option for a family outing. Kids will love the food. And the Deserts are to die for!!!!
