The meatballs with linguine and marinara sauce was delicious! Best meatballs I've had in a long while. Super service. Nice local place. Next time I will try the pizza!

This is a thrill and surprise in Alpine. The food is made from authentic Italian recipes using only authentic ingredients. Only deviations are when they can get better ingredients, locally. For example, they use Marfa hot house grown tomatoes that tasted like Heaven! The Caprese Salad with Marfa tomatoes, fresh basil and fresh mozzarella and 25 yr old basalmic vinegar... More

Employees were wonderful. Service, while a little slow, was worth the wait. The food was wonderful. From the pizza to the salad to the pasta nothing served was short of great. They had run out of house wine and just served the upgrade of our choice for the house price. Very nice and reasonably priced.

The food here was good with very generous portions. Staff was very friendly. I had the pasta special for the day which was mushroom filled ravioli, a side salad (which was big) and a glass of wine. I had the 1/2 order of pasta and got all of the above for $10!!!

This place had good pasta at a decent price. The gelato was also excellent and one serving was enough for two to share. :)

Stopped by during my monthly shopping trip to Alpine and had the Tomato Basil soup, it was delicious. Cannot wait to try their other offerings. Had Mango Iced Tea and it too was delicious. This is a very nice restaurant and everyone should check it out.

We have eaten at this restaurant four times over the past 8 months. We brought our son here tonight for a special celebration dinner and we will never return. My husband is an Iraqi War Veteran who requires a service dog. As soon as we arrived an older waitress, who has waited on us 3 other times, asked us if... More

Not only I, but my entire staff apologizes for the mishandling and gross negligence on our part. This is not only embarrassing but also very humbling that this even took place in our establishment. There is no excuse for our actions however, I do appreciate you letting us know what took place. We have instructed our entire staff on what... More

Goodness knows why so many people on here are raving about this restaurant, and even more strange is how it manages to be ranked number 8 out of 31 restaurants in Alpine. This restaurant was recommended by my hotel's chef, so I thought he must know what he's talking about. Unfortunately I was wrong. The food is very ordinary, and... More

I had the evening special: sausage in red sauce on pasta. Tasty but nothing special. The dining options are so limited in Alpine that you will end up at and appreciate this pleasant eatery if you in town for any length of time.

The food and service is above average for Alpine, but so is the price for the quantity. Almost all items are a la carte, which can make for a very expensive meal. Especially if one orders a $7 "glass" of wine and then only gets an inch. If you must have Italian, this is the only place to go when... More
