Authentic Italian with Genuine Family Hospitality

It really doesn't matter what you order there is not disappointing item on the menu. Typically, I go here alone to enjoy the ambiance as well as the cuisine. Enjoy!!!

Right on the busy highway between Poncha Springs and Salida, you'll find a surprisingly sophisticated Italian restaurant, a couple of blocks down the hill from the Poncha Springs Lodge. It's popular and opens early, filling up by 6 pm. Portions are generous and the wine list is excellent.

Delicious Italian food. We have been here a few times over the years. Very nice. Quaint. Out of the way. The building was once a house, so it feels very homey. Children's menu- yes.

We have been visiting the San Luis Valley for over 15 years and just tried this place in the last couple of years. I can't believe we missed out on eating there...it is excellent!

What a nice surprise! High class Italian restaurant up in the mountains, but reasonably priced. Food is to die for. Open only 5 days a week evenings, and worth waiting for! Reservations are recommended, although we usually arrive early and there has always been room for us.

What a GEM! The service was amazing, friendly and very accommodating! My husband requested alfredo instead of red sauce and they told him he could have whatever he wanted - with a smile! The food was spectacular; homemade soup, a delicate salad and wonderous rich main courses! The atmosphere was beautiful, authentic Italian and comfortable. I wish we had room... More

Some of the town locals recommended this restaurant to us & we found the food to be authentic Italian & very delicious. The serving sizes are very generous & you get soup, salad, your entree & bread. We ordered stuffed clams as an appetizer & they were very tasty. We definitely would go back again next we're in town.

This is the kind of family Italian restaurant I remember from my youth. Friendly atmosphere and big portions of delicious classic dishes. I thought the place was really attractive with red tablecloths and nice spacing between tables. I had Eggplant Parmigiana which was delicious! The tomato sauce was really thick and fresh tasting. Dinners come with soup and salad. I... More
