Much like eating in a good Chinese Restaurant, In my opinion, "It's hard to go wrong" with Italian too... You see, I don't remember having had a bad dining experience in an Italian Restaurant. (Ofcourse, I haven't been to Italy and haven't eaten authentic Italian food, So... I really have no solid basis for judgement, but I've met a couple of Italian chefs along the way, and have tasted their ooh so good Italian cooking, so... for now, I will have to rely on that...)
I have heard nothing but good comments about this restaurant since way back in college and I must say, it is truly one of the better Italian places in the metro. (*pardon my photos. I was too shy to take photos of all the food that Mr. & Mrs. T ordered, so i was only able to capture a measly few...)

Great food, good ambiance, excellent service. Prices are a bit steep but it is comparable to any restaurant of the same service. =)
