Thrilled to find this place

We are thrilled to find this place. A little off the beat and path but worth the walk. Finally some real food on our vacation. The lasagna was so good. The staff were just as great. Thank you for a great night.

Our server was patient, helpful and so pleasant. He helped make our lunch a delightful time. The Guido's favorite sandwich was so good and the mushroom salad was great. Keep up the good work.

We had the lasagna special (mushrooms and a white sauce) and turkey scaloppine and they were both outstanding! We're from Chicago where there is a lot if great Italian restaurants and this ranked up there with our favorites. Oh, and the housemate ricotta appetizer...very tasty, but aeemed more like a dessert. Oh, and great wines too.

Authentic Foods with incredible flavors and without a doubt the best gelato in the states. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience. Guy Fieri should feature this restaurant on food network. Absolutely incredible experience. A great taste of Italy in Durango Colorado.

The food was great! Portions were prefect and the fresh pasta so yummy. And the gelato! Wow. A nice casual setting with no fuss. We sat at the bar and had a great experience with Meg! Thank you for the great service. You must check this place out.

I can't help but to laugh at the lame people that write reviews that know nothing about real food. This place is not stuffy just real down to earth good... More

I ordered Eggplant Parmesan to go.When I arrived home and opened it was a 4 x 4 piece of Eggplant floating in marinara sauce for 14.00. I called to ask if I could come pick up the pasta I thought accompanied this dish. Come to find out it is an additional 14.00 for any side of pasta. I am Italian... More

Our Eggplant Parmesan is a normal size portion and yes we do add some additional sauce to it. We make everything from scratch here nothing from a can or box. Our food is served exactly the way it would be served in Italy that means without pasta. We also realize that this may not be appealing to all and we... More

This was a find for us looking for some good Italian food and it could not have been better.Everything made in house and very very fresh.The appitizers were excellent as well as the apnin I had which took the cake for the best pannini ever.There was nothing to dislike about the place.
