Great Dinner

A good selection of Italian dishes and wood fired oven pizza. We had great service and a tasteful and pleasant meal. Save room for desserts, made in-house.

Had the chicken picatta and it was excellent. The wait staff is awesome and the restaurant is very comfortable. The chicken had just the right amount of lemon and the pasta was cooked perfectly. The restaurant is in a Victorian Style House very quaint.

First thing I noticed when walking through the front entrance was the welcome scent of an inviting historic home laced with Italian spice. If you are a small party of 3-4 try to get a seat near the front porch. The back area accommodates large groups and can get very noisy. The food was priced right. I had the toasted... More

Beautiful historic building. The staff was good. But the star was the food. The bread was freshly made. My husband ordered the lasagna I ordered the feta, artichoke, and spinach quiche. We shared a tiramisu and coffee. Everything down to the fresh ice tea was delicious.

I am an Eggplant Parmesan junkie, theirs is the best I have ever had, even better than my own homemade.

This is a 5th visit to this restaurant, always a good meal. We enjoy their pizza, salad and soups for a main meal. For desert, their cream puffs are excellent. The building and location isn't anything to get excited about, however its like other restaurants in Las Cruces where appearances can be deceiving. I'd chose this over Olive Garden any... More

Every review I have read is in the excellent range. I am not quite there. The building, an old, large, stately home is beautiful. They offer musical entertainment on Thursday evenings which begins around 6:30 which is excellent because Las Cruces is an early dinner town. I am a transplant from CT where New Haven, CT is considered one of... More

Best Italian I've had in a long time. We had ravioli & pasta marinara baked with cheese.... It was delicious! We can't wait to come back!

I'm Italian (half Napolitan, half Veronese) from Boston, and take Italian food seriously. At one point early in my 8 years in Las Cruces, I decided to try all the Italian restaurants in the city and see which one I thought was the best. Si Italian Bistro won. After that experiment, and since I cook and eat Italian food at... More

First time here and I have to say they know how to do Italian. It rivals El Centro in Des Moines, IA; one of the best Italian restaurants in that city. My husband and I shared a bottle of great wine, the Frutti Di Mare alla Proviencial with an extra salad and were too full to try their awesome looking... More
