We are always pleased with the friendly and professional waitstaff. The owners always welcome us! Frank makes an amazing strawberry daiquiri and they serve excellent choice of wines. Everything is homemade and the Italian selections are delicious. We also recommend the stuffed salmon. Excellent choice!!!

I always appreciated that dinner is served with a delicious soup and salad and bread! We shared a nice bottle of wine and desserts after dinner. Love the atmosphere and the service was super. The chef came out and checked with us after the meal - nice touch!!

New Year's Eve December 31, 2014: My bride and I were staying at a local B & B in Salida and discovered this wonderful restaurant in Poncha Springs. Most likely we had driven past the establishment 100 times over the last bunch of years on trips between Alamosa and Denver. It was New Year's Eve and I hadn't planned appropriately... More

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
