My wife and I tried this famous Memphis italian restaurant for dinner and left disappointed. After we were seated, we didn't see a waiter for 10 minutes. Our waiter seemed slow, unmotivated and unknowledgeable about the menu. It should be noted that no fresh bread is served at the table - instead we were given these cheap crunchy breadsticks in a package. We had the oysters rockefeller for an appetizer - the oysters were very small and hidden under a heaping amount of topping. Our main courses arrived promptly, but were unappealing. The veal picatta was average but the sauce was overpowered with lemon. My wife had the eggplant which was average as well. The marinara sauce that covered the pasta was our biggest complaint. It was watery and chunky with an overbearing presence of green peppers - not what I would consider marinara. In the end, we payed $75 for a below average italian dinner with lackluster service. The atmosphere is nice, but we won't be back.

Pros: Nice atmosphere, plenty of parking.

Cons: Below average food and service. Not a good value.

This place is one of the best places to take that special someone out on a date. The atmosphere is set to perfection for a romantic evening for two and the staff makes sure not to interupt too much during your dinner. The food is incredible and incorporates all the wonderful Italian flavors in their pasta dishes and main courses. They have a good wine selection. And of course, the dessert at the end. The Bananas Foster is the best because the waiter will come out and make it right in front of you. The flames cooking the dessert is incredible to see. Overall, a great restaurant for a terrific evening out!
