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.

Our waitstaff was friendly and attentive, and all the food was excellent, from appetizers to main meals, and we had both vegetarians and carnivores at our table. Then we shared several desserts which were all delicious!

I've eaten here many times and I've never been particularly impressed with the food. Every meal with have something that is good (fried zuchini appetizer) but the entrees have been a let down more often than not.

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!
