Lasagne....ugh. Pizza Yay! I'll keep trying until I know how to dine there. But really, stay away from Lasagne.

My husband and I thought we were being smart by waiting to celebrate Valentine's Day the day after to avoid the crowds. The When in Rome thought the same and were woefully understaffed for the deluge of like minded folks who descended on this little gem of a restaurant. We arrive for an early dinner to find we nabbed the... More

As usual, excellent food. Range of wine prices are available. Chef was kind enough to go out of his way to make us a "puff". The chilled golden beet salads were great. Lobster ravioli's were superb. Putanesca was very good, and my amatriciana was delightfully spicy. An excellent, shared chocolate pots du crème was very nice to finish the meal.... More

I live two miles away from this restaurant and eat there frequently. After all the meals we've had there over the years, I finally need to post a review of how fabulous they are, every single time. The salads are fresh and delicate--the roasted beet with arugula is great. The lobster ravioli is the best ravioli I've had anywhere in... More

Called in with my daughter . We shared a bruschetta to start which was delicious - very much fresh made, great flavour to the cherry tomatoes (when it's dark and 15°F outside its great to be able to taste summer!) I had the "Penne vodka" (smoked salmon and cherry tomatoes) while my daughter had a "make your own pizza". Both... More

Ate here on 12/13/14. Very classy, quaint, cozy looking restaurant. Ordered 3 pizzas for my gamily of 5: Cheese, Margherita & Meat Lovers. Ive spent a few months in Italy & The Med. The pizzas were as close as you get without buying airfare! Perfect! This place just became My Local!!!

I had expected this restaurant to be rather upscale. So I was surprised to see patrons dressed in everything from evening wear to shorts. But then, this is Bigfork and the restaurant is in a strip mall. The aromas were heavenly and heightened the dining expectation, but service was a bit poky. The food was satisfying and tasty, but not... More

So good that we went twice in three days. The lobster raviolis were so good, two of us ordered it again!!! I switched to the braised lamb shank, which was outstanding, along with creamy mashed potatoes and fresh veggies. The caprese was equally fresh and tasty, along with the berry and walnut salad. The open kitchen is a plus. But... More
