    I’ve eaten here many times. The food and the atmosphere were delightful. It is a smaller, quaint Italian restaurant with the limited hours and very fine food, and it fills up fast. If you wait until the day of, on a Friday, as I did, you might have to settle for an 8:15 or 5:30 reservation. We arrived at 8:15 and we were seated immediately. Service was quite attentive, without being burdensome. I had the lobster ravioli with the Caesar salad. My friend, a vegetarian, had ziti and the house salad. The half-carafe of Cabernet was the perfect size for two. We had a nice quiet dinner with lots of good conversation, an excellent food and service. The downtown Gainesville area is a nice area to walk around before or after your dinner.

    Great food and service, as always. I loved the petite filet and butter poached lobster tail, while my friend ate up the prime delmonico steak. Great choices on the wine list if you’re celebrating!

    Eaten there a number of times, mostly breakfast. The American breakfast is always well cooked, fresh, and delicious. For lunch the onion soup and wedge salad are excellent. Service is always great and it's a little difficult because I eat outside with my dog (who likes their sausage also). The menu is expensive but the food is always quality and well prepared.
