We went knowing that a reservation was required ... the staff went out of their way to get us in. We ordered the Meat Lovers Pizza. It was the best pizza! So good we went back 3 days later for another. I highly recommend a visit to here, while you are in Bigfork!

This is the only place I have found in Bigfork, that I have had a problem with the service. The atmosphere is beautiful, the menu is diverse and the food is authentic and very good. They have a very good wine list and the pricing is competitive. None of this mattered on our last visit, as it took over 50... More

No need to cross the ocean to have a fabulous Italian meal - just make a trip to Big Fork, Montana, and drop in at When in Rome. Two of us had the special of the evening, lobster ravioli. The other two had the Pasta Ala Puttanesca. We also had a margarita pizza and appetizers - melon wrapped in prosciutto... More

Had heard about this place from friends so decided to try it. Great food and great service! While it is primarily pasta and pizza, there were a couple of other entrees and I tried the Osso Buco. It was so tender and good. It came with a side of gnocchi which I did not want and so they happily substituted... More

White table clothes in a little strip mall in Bigfork, Montana and excellent food. We read good reviews of this place so decided to try it out. We were not disappointed. My wife had the daily ravioli, lobster, and I had a pizza. It was great, and lived up to the very good reviews it receives.

I"ve been going here since it was sun mountain pizza.I have never had a problem with the food or the service.The new owners are decent people and have very good food.Some people are very high maintenance and you couldn't please them no matter what.What ever business you own you have that 3% you never want back,ever.

This restaurant is family owned and operated. The setting appears bleak, but is very cozy and warm inside. The food is really good with good size portions. Their wine recommendations have always been excellent. Reservations in the summer is a must!!

We had dinner with friends and they selected the place. Bigfork is small, so the suprise wasn't seeing a restaurant in a strip shopping center. It was that it was a gourmet and beautiful restaurant! Lovely dining room with a great fireplace. So elegant but cozy and warm. Nice wine selection as well as beer and drinks. Good selection on... More

Reservations are available, which is advisable in the summer. My grandson said he had the best pizza he's ever had at When in Rome. Their pasta dishes are wonderful and the wine selection is quite nice.
