    Salads were very good. Veal and Filet mignon entrees were tough. Willing to try it again and just get pasta to see how it is. Will not recommend it until then. It was very crowded and noisy and tables are very close to each other, not a plus for us.

    The food was outstanding. I also like the fact at the end of our meal either the owner or the manager ( not sure which one he is ) came over to our table and asked about our meal and spoke with us a short time.

    I picked this place for my birthday dinner based on recommendations from friends. I would not recommend this place after my visit. It seemed our waitress was a little bothered by the fact we had a table of 5, and yes I did make reservations well in advance for this dinner. Our waitress didn’t interact with our table as she did the others in the same section, I let that go because I was enjoying my company. About 10 minutes after we placed our food order another table of 5 sat down. About 15minutes AFTER they order they get their food. I asked our waitress ‘How is that possible when we ordered before they ever sat down?!?’ She responded ‘Their waitress hurried and got their order in’ and just walked off. At that point My father got up to go find a manager. We still waited another 10 minutes for our food. Found out that the gentleman walking around to every table and checking on them except our table was the manager. By this point I’m getting the impression this place had an issue with the color at the table because the service literally every table was getting was no where near what we received. When it came to getting the check our waitress took the money and after 15 minutes of waiting for the change we had to flag her down after she finished taking another tables order. Her response when asked where is the change and receipt was a dry ‘Oh yeah that’ and walked away. After 5 minutes and her standing in the corner talking to the manager we got our change. The food was amazing! Atmosphere was great! The staff left a bad taste. I’d order to go if I were to ever eat here again.

    Outstanding meal! Loved the appetizer and dinner specials and the home made pasta dinners! House salad was delicious. Nice wine list and truly wonderful service. Don’t miss the tiramisu. Meal was a good value overall - we would definitely go back!

    Food was awful. No lettuce for salad but served us anyway without explaining and gluten free pasta was the worst quality I’ve ever had. Just overall laughable. When we asked about the salad we were told sorry best we can do.

    We had some great Italian food here. Bread and calamari appetizer was excellent with lots of tentacles just the way I like it. I got Lasagna which was excellent as well. Only downside was it was extremely busy and somewhat noisy due to that, but to be expected in a good restaurant.

    We came here for my wife's birthday and had a great time. The food was excellent, and we look forward to coming back. She got the penne with vodka sauce, and the portion was massive. I got the Veal Guiseppe and would absolutely order it again! The artichoke appetizer was okay, I think we will try something like the mussel's next time.

    Best Italian in Colorado Springs by far. I arrived about 20 minutes before my reservation and was seated immediately. The service was as close to perfect as I could have hoped for. There was no long wait between courses and no overlap. Drinks were never empty. The restaurant was full but it seemed that we were the only people our server was taking care of.

    We made a reservation a couple days in advance and were disappointed right off the bat when we were seated at what I can only imagine is the worst table in the restaurant. We were squeezed right by the hostess stand so the whole time I had people brushing up against me as they were on their way in or out. The service was also slow and even with a reservation at 7pm and getting sat at 6:58 we didn’t get to put in our drink order until 7:10. The food was okay. I got the lasagna and only had cheese on my first three bites. It looked like there were other people complaining about various things so I’m hoping it was just an off night for them.

    We came here on advise of friends. We were somewhat disappointed. My Chicken Marco was dried out and overcooked. The meatballs the kids got were not very good. The bread, salads and pasta were very good! I don't know that it rates a return trip. It was crowded and noisy!

    I was actually pretty disappointed. I got the shrimp scampi and it had zero flavor. The service was decent, not great. The noise level was very high so I felt like I had to yell across the table.

    My lasagna was good. My husband got spaghetti and meatballs and it was not good. The meatballs tasted funny. I don’t know if it was a spice that was used that didn’t fit right in a meatball or if there was something wrong with them (like they were spoiled or something?). Bread was good, salad and wine were good. Not sure why a Caesar’s salad upcharged over a house salad. They were the same size (house salad maybe a little bigger and more ingredients). I thought, overall, things were pricier than they should have been.

    Our food was delicious, but mine came out wrong once, was quickly corrected and was delicious. However, when I started eating it I realized half of my eggplant parm was chicken parm. As someone with dietary restrictions that can cause me to be very sick if I eat the wrong thing, this was very concerning.
