You can smell it before you even step in the front door. The place is super cozy & oozes good vibration. We sat downstairs, but there's an upstairs (patio?). Ordered ravioli & fruti de mar... The fruti had all kinds of sea food in it that intensified the sauce. Slurp the pasta and dip the bread in sauce. Can't help... More

This place has hands down the best service and food and atmosphere we experienced on our 2 week trip to Montana! I can not possibly say enough. The first night we had no wait and the second night we waited about 35 minutes. It was worth every minute. We had a group of 11 both nights and my kids, 6,... More

Food was hot, fresh, and tasty. Lots of garlic! Kid menu had good $5 options as well. Place was small and filled up fast, so expect a short wait during prime hours.

My family and I were seated very quickly on the balcony. A young man in his early teens poured our water in the glass and all over the menus and the table. Then he slid the glass over the table, if I did not catch the glass it I would gave worn it. Then the young child gave us our... More

Best Italian food. I go there every time I visit Whitefish and it's excellent every time. My favourite dish is Penne Isabella. Fast and friendly service and priced well.

We ate dinner here and both think this is the best Italian we have ever had. My wife had the Italian nachos. Quite a different take on nachos and they were delicious. I had the ravioli and two big meatballs. It was the best ever. I would have to rate this #1 in the nation. The staff are perfect, you... More

We had 26 and the manager was nice enough to seat us all together upstairs. We ate family style (12 different pasta one of each appetizers, and a few pizzas) for... More

We eat Italian food everywhere and this place beats the big cities. Best eggplant in the world and outrageous fried calimari. Loved, loved the food.

Happened on this restaurant by accident. Oops, I had not checked tripadviser. But wait, it was great, the food tasty and plenty of it. Our waitress was perfect. The atmosphere is noisy inside so if the weather is good, go to the deck. Try to go at off times because it is also crowded seating. Many locals were eating here,... More
