A plate full of yum!

We went for a late lunch/early dinner. The food was delicious and fresh. Service was great, but we were the only family there at first. The pricing for most dishes were reasonable. If craving authentic Italian I would return. Chicken parmesean shown in the image.

This is some of the best Italian food in the area. It's well worth eating here if you are visiting the area. The lighting is a little dim though, making it tough for those who can't read small print in the dark.

The restaurant was busy and the atmosphere happy. The solo singer, guitar player was well received. The food was good, well prepared and delivered quickly. The only drawback was the coffee. We tried to ensure that it would be properly made cappuccino. We were assured that it was made in an Italian style coffee machine. When it was delivered it... More

We were looking for somewhere different for dinner while on a little trip to Havasu and were not disappointed! When we walked in there was some live music which was nice and we were promptly seated in a booth. Our waiter (I believe his name was Chad) did a great job of keeping our water full and even brought out... More

They offer some really good Italian food here so it's worth checking out this place. Small but quaint. My first experience here was just so -so. But a couple of months later I attended an event catered by LaVita Dolce and the food was soooo good , that we decided we'd better give them another try. Glad we did, the... More

Tonight was the last time I will frequent this establishment! I have eaten here dozens of times in the past with only one previous complaint (a bad piece of veal) but the price gouging we experienced tonight was OUTRAGEOUS! Last Father's Day my significant other and I took our dads and their wives here for dinner. For the six of... More

My wife and I went here for dinner and the food was really good. I have a hard time deciding a restaurants rating between a three and four. Went to another Italian establishment in town and I loved there food. A five star rating to me is the best and greatest type restaurant that I have ever been too. A... More

Visiting Lake Havasu and just driving around. We saw the restaurant and decided to give it a try. Very friendly staff and attentive. My husband and I both loved our pasta dishes, wine, and the red hummus. We would certainly recommend and return!

Went to dinner to for date night and it was our first time there and the food was excellent! There was a fabulous bluesy singer with a piano player and it set the mood just right for our date. The homemade red sangria was awesome! I do believe we just found our new date night spot. Deffinatly will be back!
