Great Food!!

Great Food. Service was ok. The waitress was on break so the owner had to take orders. He did not do a very good job at it. However, the food was great!

I'm no chef or anything but I do know rice should be cooked thoroughly. Our waitress was new, she didn't know the menu and was very forgetful. The pasta was proper. The sauce tasty kind of sweet for me. I prefer a rich tomato sauce. My chicken stuffed with ham and spinach was good. I just wish I had know... More

My wife and I love locally owned, off-the-beaten-path restaurants so I really had high hopes for this place given the rave reviews posted here but was sorely disappointed. The marinara sauce is not good. There is no eggplant dish on the menu, and the chicken parmigiana was the most tasteless piece of chicken I think a restaurant has ever served... More

Without a doubt, this was the worst Italian restaurant I have ever been in. Owner let the wine/beer license lapse so no wine was available. Red sauce tasted like something out of a can with sugar added. Meat balls were more like round burgers. Chicken saltmbocca was not sauteed, it was boiled.

Small family owned Italian restaurant. Loved the ravioli and the bread is outstanding. Friendly owners and the food is prepared fresh.

I had Valentine's dinner at Elvira's tonight. The special was ravioli shrimp rosse wine sauce. The chef outdid himself! One of the best meals I've had anywhere and I'm a foodie. We are lucky to have homemade pasta in our small town. Also, a nice surprise was the live violin music. Who could ask for more?

My husband ate at Elivira's last night and had a wonderful dinner. The food was amazing! Warm fresh homemade bread with a crisp salad. The house salad dressing was a mix of spices with oil which was really good. We had lasagne and it was the best I have had. I don't usually do dessert but had to try some... More

If you like pasta then go here. It's a small place that one may overlook but you will regret it if you do. Prices are good and the pasta is delicious. Service was good and friendly and I will definitely be back for more.

This is a rare hidden gem in a world of chains and bland food choices. This is an opportunity to dine with a family of great Italian chefs who emulate their heritage cuisine perfectly. Not only every item prepared to an incredible standard but presented as though you are part of the family. This pizza was one of the best... More

This was, without a doubt, the best Italian food I've ever had in America in terms of authenticity. Having been to Italy twice and falling in love with the cuisine, I've since developed a considerable loathing for places like Olive Garden that claim to be authentic but are usually, in my opinion, rather boring. So, when I say this food... More
