When you arrive at the restaurant the first thing you will probably note is that it doesn't look like much from the outside and that it may be a little hard to find if you weren't looking for it specifically. You may think differently, but I consider that a plus in my book. A lot of places can draw you in with window dressing, but the focus on the food is what really matters. The Girlfriend and I went in and sat down and were immediately warmly greeted by Chef Mike and the rest of the staff. It was a nice touch that doesn't happen enough at other restaurants. The Girlfriend and I looked over the menu and decided to go with an appetizer of the garlic cheese knots and the ravioli (her's) and lasagna (mine) dishes respectively.
Our garlic cheese knots were out in short order and we devoured them in a likewise fashion. They were delicious. They not only had a great garlic and parmesan cheese flavor, but the texture was soft and chewy. I thought it was much better than breadsticks I've had elsewhere. My entree was also quite delicious. I was served a large portion of lasagna that was bubbling with melted cheese. Everything about the dish tasted fresh right down to the mushrooms that were included in the dish which I found to be a welcome addition. I appreciated that it wasn't just a dried out square of layered pasta like is served at some other Italian restaurants I've been to. The Girlfriend thought likewise about her ravioli, and although I didn't taste it personally it was confirmed by the fact that she finished the sizable portion.
