Everything you eat here is handmade, and it's extra tasty, so show up hungry. The Alfredo, for instance, is a step above — there are subtle spices in their preparation that truly elevate the normally pedestrian dish. Their veal Marsala is the real customers' favorite, and just one bite and you'll know why. The wine list is strong, Italian, and excellent — just like the food.
