I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.

  1. I went. I’ve been eating low carb so I have to say the menu is very carb heavy. Virtually all the entrees have a pasta side. I asked for a vegi side though and they happily accomodated me with the yummy aspargus side and didn’t even upcharge it.

    I can’t wait to try this! You know, sometimes it just takes new restaurants a little time to find their stride. Remember Pizze Stone? Btw, what ever happened to them? Do you know if they’re ever going to open up a new location?

    we just tried it, it is wonderful! we had the eggplant verdona (sp?) which was like eggplant parm with fried zucchini & tomatoes as well, which was great, and my boyfriend had the chicken & asparagus ravioli, with a walnut cream sauce which was to die for.
    I would skip the arugula salad, not my thing.
    But the bread & butter are fantastic, way better than usual italian cafe fare.
    I’m so glad theres a place in the neighborhood that has fresh pasta, we will definitely be back.

  4. Valuable information and exceptional design you got here! I would like to thank you for sharing your thoughts and time into the stuff you post!! Thumbs up

  5. Nothing like a beautiful rant to start my Monday off right!

    Great blog! Sorry to change the subject, but, since Nashville is getting a lot of press lately, I’d like to find a great sushi restaurant or Japanese restaurant in Nashville TN. Have you seen any recent buzz? There’s a new one called Nomzilla Sushi Et Cetera, but very few reviews. Here’s the address of this new Nashville Sushi Restaurant, 1201 Villa Place #101 Nashville, TN 37212 – (615) 268-1424. Let me know your thoughts! Thanks!
