This was our third visit. We brought a friend along to celebrate her birthday and we had a wonderful meal. The homemade minestroni soup is stellar, as is the Gnocci with sausage. Good think I live in New Mexico....I'd eat there weekly!

Second time we have left because of poor customer service. Such a shame. The food is excellent, but there is no emphasis customer value.

My boyfriend and I stumbled upon this adorable restaurant a few weeks ago late on a Saturday night. We were camping in the area and had spent the day off roading in the mountains and I wasn't in the mood to cook back at the campground. We pulled into the restaurant about 20 minutes before it closed so weren't sure... More

I ordered Prime Rib medium rare and received it raw. I ordered horse radish and it did not come with the meat so I had to wait 10 minutes to eat my meat. I then realized it was not cooked / raw. They then microwaved my prime rib which made it tough. My husband ordered scallops as they are his... More

First time here. Had a taste for pasta but then saw the fish special with roasted veggies and pasta. Salad and soup too. Food and service was excellent.

This place has a nice mom and pop, "old country" feel to it and the food also lives up to that standard. We went with a family of 8 and all the dishes were delicious with the exception of the prime rib (inedible) The minestrone soup got rave reviews and the pasta dishes were all consumed with relish. and the...

I've driven by this restaurant hundreds of times, and I always figured how good could it be, being in a small town, with the general standard of food quality in the area being quite low. I was delightfully surprised. The interior was very cozy. The food was amazing. I am vegetarian, and had plenty of options. Dessert too was over... More

My wife and I celebrated our 31st anniversary there last month. We had intended to try someplace new, but it was booked for a private party. So we returned to our "old favorite", and wound up wondering why we had ever planned a different destination in the first place. As usual, the food was excellent in both quality and quantity....

All recipes are distinctly unique yet old world. I'd presume that these meals have been passed down for generations. I had the chicken rollatini which came in the best marsala sauce I've had in over 10 years and the wife had a delicious lasagna. The restaurant itself was very traditional yet not pretentious or fake in any way. It'd be... More

We took dear friends for a special thank you dinner. Although it was a Saturday night I'd failed to make reservations. The staff quickly arranged a table it an alcove -- very wonderful for conversation. The menue was so extensive that each of us (5) selected something different. One of our guests was vegetarian and easily found something meeting her... More
