A great find in Fresno

We unexpectedly found ourselves in a hotel in Fresno, because our booking at Cedar Grove was cancelled, thanks to the Rough fire. I turned to TA and this was just across the road from our hotel. It was as good as the reviews I read said it was - nice place, good service, three courses for the... read more

Our entire family all gathered for my Father in-law's birthday. The ice tea was perfect we never had a dry glass, the food was very good. We had so much that we had to get doggie bags. The next day the food was just as good. I really wish I was able to get the name of the servers. We... More

We set out to look for a couple of other places, but they were either closed or didn't seem to exist! We happened across this place and were pleasantly surprised. Really cool decor with a life sized tram in the middle! Food was lovely and good size portions, would highly recommend the orange milkshake. I think all the staff have... More

We were in town for a water polo tournament with a bunch of teen and preteen boys who had just spent 9 hours at a tournament so they were HUNGRY. The decor was wonderful, the service was wonderful, the food was wonderful! Everyone was happy and when you are talking 20 people, thats something! Cant wait to go back. Seriously!

We traveled from the hotel to find this location. Our service was good and the food very good. Being a Tuesday night, was not too busy. Décor was nice and clean. Food was served hot and fast.

I was really hoping for much more. My cousin and his parents used to eat here when they were alive; this was his first time back since they passed away. ...Lots of memories. Unfortunately, the service could have been much better. We asked for more bread; it never arrived. Dishes were not picked up off of the crowded table. Drinks... More

I needed to host a party for 17 people and had a limited budget. A local coworker suggested this place, it was perfect. I was able to reserve a semi private room that was actually a rail car. The staff was friendly and attentive. They managed to serve everyone's meals at nearly the same time. I had the chicken Marsala... More

Lunch was a treat. I had a sausage ravioli dish that was super. Husband had a shrimp salad. They kept the bread coming & our water glasses filled. Definitely would return.

My husband and I went here for dinner after an event we attended at The Fresno State university. We have never been to one before. We ordered Raviolis and spaghetti. It was so good. Their meat sauce is the best I think I have tasted right up there with Bucca de beppo. The soup minastroni was delicious. Even got ice... More
