Very good. Nice service. For dessert, their variety of gelato is awesome. They also have some good Italian noodle type dishes, as well as yummy sandwiches. its more... More

There are many flavors of gelato to choose from and they change some of them daily. I asked for lemon the first day and they didn't have it. I checked back daily and on our last night there, lemon was in the case. Well worth waiting for. YUM!!

For several years my wife would avoid this restaurant. why we never knew but once we got her to try one of the pasta dishes we eat there at least once a month. My favorite is the Spicy Sicilian Pizza but another reason we truly enjoy it is the friendly, and excellent service we always get there.

This place actually has really great food and even better gelato at such a great price. $3.50 for a huge scoop. We had it for dessert, and then the next evening for take-out to eat while playing video poker. Two people in our party had the seafood pasta and really liked it. I enjoyed the the Greek salad, but should... More

What a perfect cafe experience in the hustle and bustle of a casino resort. First of all, the service was absolutely impeccable: friendly, attentive, informative, pleasant, not disruptive. The food was just excellent. The ravioli with mushroom sauce was better than I have had in $$$$ restaurants. The sausage lasagna was also great. And the gelato always makes my wife... More

My mom and I asked for 2 scoops of gelato, but the manager was so nice, she must have given us almost 5 scoop equivalent of yummy gelato. The pumpkin and hazelnut flavors were our pick! One of the best icecream places we've been to.
