On a Whim Surprise!

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!

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...

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

A group of 8 friends had reservations for dinner. My first time here. Off to a rocky start. Table not ready, but it didn't take long for them to place us in the worst table in the place. Off the kitchen in the server traffic route and next to the server station. Plus we were seated at a table designed... More
