Better than Nona!

As an Italian, and a connoisseur of the cuisine, this intimate restaurant hidden in a strip mall puts my own Italian-born Nona (that's grandmother in Italian) to shame. Bar none this place has the best Bruschetta I have ever eaten in my life! That includes little Italy in NY and SF, and the real... read more

Bar none this place has the best Bruschetta I have ever eaten in my life! That includes little Italy in NY and SF, and the real deal, ROME itself!

We stopped in on our way headed south from Glacier. The location is very convenient as it is right off the highway. We loved the margarita pizza! Also it was decorated very nice and felt cozy. The cork wall in the bathroom was a nice touch!

Excellent selection of Italian wineries, very good pizzas, pastas, and the best of Greek appetizers and salads. Service was excellent. They were very accommodating when we arrived without a reservations.

Was hesitant to try this place after reading some pretty bad reviews, but overall I am now glad I went. Our food was served quickly and was pretty good. The lasagna was a little heavy on the sausage and the bruschetta we got for an appetizer would have been a little better with some mozzarella. But other than that it... More

A small unpretentious place in a strip mall that serves great pizza and pasta. The place is usually packed. Does not serve lunch. They also have a small pizza only place in Kalispell.

This restaurant is in a strip mall beside a Subway and its outdoor eating is on the cement of the parking lot. It has a sign on its door that says "reservations recommended" although there were customers at only two other tables the entire time we were there. The food we ordered was tasty, but there was nothing with it.... More

The pizza here is as good as it's written up as BUT you may want to do take out if you are in a casual mood. We came in in jeans and tennis shoes without a reservation at four. The reception we received was so cool, we almost left.

Wonderful food, wine list, service. Lamb shank and Osso Buco authentic. Make a reservation as they are very popular. Wish they were in Santa Monica ❗️

Perfect for the tourists visiting Glacier National Park who are looking for a great dinner after a long day. Must get the tiramisu!
