At dawn, our chefs start their craft. The scent of our slow-simmered tomato sauce, enriched with Italian herbs, envelops the kitchen. Among our specialties, the Penna alla Vecchia Roma shines: a blend of Penne, broccoli, and our in-house Italian sausage in a garlic olive oil and marinara fusion. Every ingredient, especially our unique cheese, promises unmatched freshness.

Very authentic and on point Italian cuisine. Professional and timely staff. Daniel was informative and a joy to have as our server. Definitely worth our trip from CLT. Kudos to this establishment.

This place is phenomenal. I really enjoyed the Italian food served here as I am an average joe. The fried calamari was delicious. It was really cool to see the owner in the restaurant and working hard beside his employees. I have a huge respect for that and will happily come back to this place. Very cozy atmosphere.

Great place for authentic Italian food! My mom and I visited this restaurant, they DO have a great wine list, we were going to get a different bottle and the waiter personally recommended one that was much better than our original idea. We split the Shrimp Fra Diavalo which comes with garlic knots. The sauce was amazing, just enough spice and garlic. Perfect! We also got a salad, I believe the dressing is made in house and it was excellent, not overpowering. Overall a great place to eat, they are open until 11 on weekends so a good late night choice as well. Very personable and excellent food, will definitely be back! If you are going for dessert, choose the limoncello cake. It was amazing!

Enjoyed a nice Tuesday lunch at Vics on Lake Boone Trail. Enjoyed the 'New Yorker' pizza and the 'Original' Stromboli! Service fast and pleasant, and the business lunch atmosphere made for a nice meeting place. It was delightful to hear Italian echoing across the dining room!

We were visiting Raleigh for the day to take the family to some museums, we're from Wilmington and decided on this cute little spot for an early dinner... Great atmosphere, clean, friendly staff, Daniel was hilarious and he and the other nice blonde haired server (missed her name, she was very nice) really made sure me, my wife and our 4 kids were taken care of. The Food was top tier Italian, flavorful, well presented and reasonably priced for what you get, a filling plate. I had the Pollo Del Re. We will definitely make this our go to spot when we are in Raleigh. Thanks for being a great place to relax and eat delicious food with good people after a long day 😉
