Pleasant surprise! Friendly bartender, happy hour drinks and appetizers. Recommend the garlic breads, minestrone soup, and pizza (called garlic chips?). Will be back...

Warm wellcome, great service and really good food! I loved the eggplant parmiagiana! My first boxed takeaway, food was very good, large serving and worth the box! We usually share meals but could not agree on just one! Nice el Dorado Barbera wine to compliment! Wish SUP participants were there to share! Congratulations!

Got take out for 40 people here one evening...huge servings and good food at a reasonable price. I ordered in advance and the staff had everything ready for pick up. This is a good option if you are trying to feed a crowd but don't want to eat at a restaurant!

This is the best restaurant on the Northshore in my opinion. Always crowded so go early. The bar is comfortable and the service is great.

We have enjoyed Lanza's before and this visit was no different. Great ravioli and great cocktails. We were happy with the food and service even though it was very busy. We will be back!

Liked the atmosphere, authentic Italian food and kids crayon offerings. If anything the portions are rather large but so tasty one would put on too much weight eating there often.

Nothing to rave about, but also not bad either. $20 for most items on the menu...so a touch steep for a pasta place. But, it's Tahoe I guess. The bread they served, pre meal, was definitely for the birds. Not good. The soup was very good, however, & the pasta solid overall. Again, not great, but also not bad. 3... More

Solid Italian food, great for families and large groups. Portions are large - recommend splitting. Salad dressing is awesome!

This restaurant was recommended by the owners of the Tahoe Sands Resort. It's three minutes by car and really worth a visit. Food was first rate, the portions huge, service spot-on and reasonably priced.

This place holds a lot of people, so don't assume if the parking lots full that there will be a wait. Our party of 4 was seated immediately, our waitress was friendly, and our wine arrived immediately (generous pour). The food was overpriced and average in quality ($19 for a plate of pasta with marinara seems high). I had the... More
