I have tried pizza all over the world. Until, When in Rome, in Kalispell, MT, the most delicious pizza I had found was, New Park Pizza in Howard Beach, Queens, NY, and Best Pizza in Brooklyn, NY. MOVE ASIDE FELLA'S!!! When in Rome, in Kalispell, is the most fantastical pizza I have tasted, anywhere in this known 'verse. Try it... More

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

MThe service in this restaurant was horrible, and they weren't that busy. Food was so, so. The Best Pizza Ever wasn't even close. I felt like we were more of an inconvenience than a valued customer.

Based on Trip Advisor reviews, we decided to give this restaurant a try. Very glad we did. Both my BF & I got the lasagne($14) & it was delicious. Very meaty and full of flavor. We both would get again. Place was rather romantic. Wish their wine prices weren't so high (red glasses started at $11) because I love a... More

When they say it is the best pizza in MT they are not kidding. We had a party large enough to order five different varieties of the pizza, each was outstanding. Don't be afraid to try The Best Pizza Ever, you will not regret it!

My wife had veal scallopene and I had lamb shank. We always share our dinners, but we didn't want to give up a bite of any of the dinner. The veal was so tender and flavorful. When I got the lamb shank the waiter handed me a large sharp knife, I said I hope I don't have to use this,... More

Visiting Montana from out of state. Went to When in Rome with sister- and brother- in law. Looked forward to pizza but had special with ravioli with andouille and shrimp (dream meal for me) but had white wine reduction sauce (and can't have any alcohol). Chef/ owner was kind enough to create sauce with no alcohol, one of the best... More

Based on tripadvisor reviews we went to When in Rome. Got there 20 min after their posted closing time, but they welcomed us and graciously served us a 3-course dinner. Shared the green bean salad with strawberries, mint, and balsamic dressing (nightly addition), which was excellent. I had the Carbonara and my husband, the Puttanesca, both great creations of well...

We were going to the Big Fork Theater and were fortunate to be able to get reservations here. They require a 2 hour window from play start, thus we had to reserve no later than 6:00, Initially, we were told only 5:30 was available, but we had a late lunch and weren't hungry, so called and were happily accommodated for...
