I stumbled upon this place three years ago and will make any excuse to go back. The restaurant is flat out beautiful. there's indoor and heated outdoor seating, a variety of italian music playing in the background, not to mention to full bar and big screen tv to watch some REAL football. I was surprised that a lot of the pastas are made at the restaurant and thoroughly impressed with their fluffy potato gnocchi. Their veal lasagna had me thinking about my mom's cooking, homemade and full of love. Also they have a special menu that changes every two weeks or so. The waiters are always friendly, polite, and most usually foreign eye candy as well ;) Their wine list is huge, and while it can be intimidating, the wait staff is more than happy to help you in selecting the perfect wine to suit your meal, whether that be a premium pasta dish, a specialty pizza, or even a tender veal dish. There's something for everyone and hopefully you're lucky enough to hear the owner sing Italian ballads.
