Italian food for real

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

Have been here before since this is a family members favorite restaurant - was not impressed during this trip - I ordered a Chicken Caesar Salad and the chicken looked and tasted like it was cooked in the microwave - had no taste or color - the salad was also pretty bland - I would of expected grilled chicken on...

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!

I was looking forward to eating Italian food, and I wasn't disappointed. You will find this restaurant tucked in a strip mall, but don't let that fool you. They have a great menu. My husband and I had stuffed manicotti. I enjoyed the fact that we had marinara sauce on one side and Alfredo on the other. We shared a... More

We ate here the first night we got in to town based on recommendations. Killer wine, killer pie and killer pasta...oh and the dessert was the bomb! Service was outstanding and prompt, decor was...dated but g'nuff, and definitely in a location you would not think of. But when you're a foodie, you put all that aside and just focus on... More

For a Monday night it was quite busy. We arrived just after 5pm and by 5:30 there was a wait for seating. The Monday special is two $14 or less dinners with an $8 or less appetizer for $20. The portions and flavor/quality was worth double. We were seated and greeted by smiling friendly staff. Our server Monique was extremely... More
