Loved it!

This is a great restaurant that delivers top notch service and quality food! We enjoyed the pear appetizer and salmon entre, delicious! Salad is served family style with fresh baked bread. All staff were friendly and genuine. We'll return soon! Thanks L May, loved it!

This is a great little gem in downtown Dubuque. My husband and kids had the filet which was perfectly prepared, as were the sides (the mashed potatoes are amazing). I had the capri flat bread pizza and it was one of the best I've ever had; a lot of basil, tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, etc. The service was fantastic too; very... More

I love fish. I am very sensitive to a fishy taste. The quonia salmon salad was delicious. No fishy flavor!!! Quinoa, dried currents, pumpkin seeds and more. Scrumptious. The caprese bruschetta is perfect year round! Lmay is always a great choice. The atmosphere and service is wonderful no matter where u r in the restaurant.

The service is great and the food is excellent. Had the lobster mac and cheese the last time I went and I was in heaven. The pizzas are terrific as well.

My parents often come to town and have gone a couple of times and really enjoyed it. We decided to go on night for dinner since I had never been and was a... More

I wrnt to this establishment with my mom for my birthday. It was a recommendation from a lady that works at the welcome center in Dubuque. I had one of their pizzas individual size and it was very good. The pizzas there are thin crust. If you want gluten free, that's extra. I didn't get gluten free. When you celebrate... More

The food choices are really fun and really good. The stand-bys are always good and if you want to be adventurous, you can do that, too. Nights of operation are perfect.
