Authentic Italian Gen in Keene

Wonderful Italian Mediterranean restaurant in the heart of downtown Keene. Luca, the owner, personally oversees service with a loving touch which is shared by his professional wait staff.

Somewhat limited menu focused on Italian dishes. A little pricey, but overall a nice place with good quality food. Service was a just fair but the tasty food offset these shortcomings.

We called for reservations Saturday morning and got a table for 6:00. We arrived early so we got a table outside and were seated by Luca himself. What a great ambassador for the restaurant (and for Keene). The wine list includes many reasonably priced options. Our favorite appetizer, a bruschetta sampler had a nice twist, a raspberry spread with mascarpone... More

We've eaten here on several occasions over the past year and have always enjoyed the experience. The staff is helpful and enthusiastic, and the specials are interesting and worth ordering. Their specialty drinks are great. Try the "Mediterranean Margarita," made with Limoncello. If you're celebrating a special occasion or just want to splurge a bit, this is the place to... More

Another top place on TA and we see why. Everything about this restaurant is great. All the food we had was delicious. The escargot was a great treat. Will be here again.

We have eaten here many times and always have a lovely meal. The menu changes often and we have never been disappointed. Luca is friendly and welcoming and has trained his staff to be excellent servers.

The food was very good, wait staff polite and efficient, and a convenient location on the village square with a few tables with umbrellas outside. Would definitely go back.

I ate here in June 2015. I wouldn't really call the menu Mediterranean, more Medieterranean inspired (I don't consider escargot to be Mediterranean, but what do I know). The food was good, but not great. I had the beef tenderloin, and the escargot. Beef was very tender and flavorful, the escargot was just ok. If I were back in Keene,... More

Luca's catering just catered a surprise birthday party for my daughters 40th birthday. I worked with Tawnya who helped with the menu and quantities of food needed. The food arrived hot and Tawnya set everything up. All we had to do was grab a plate and serve ourselves. The food was amazing. The pesto shrimp were so delicious. The chicken... More
