Wife and I had to wait a bit to secure a table on a Friday night and so we were starving as we sat down. The food was decent: not great but not bad. The portion sizes were fine. However, service was poor as our waitress disappeared and we struggled to get our water refilled.

This is my go to place when I want to have a fabulous bowl of soup. The Green chili Chicken soup is a must have when on the menu, along with the pumpkin, and wedding soup. The mini cream puffs are the perfect dessert after a filling meal. Yes, the pizzas are tasty along with their salads and sandwiches. The... More

Si Italian Bistro is becoming our go-to place for lunch or dinner or takeout. We still love to split a large salad and appetizer for lunch, especially the Frutti de Mare. More recently we are wanting to go back for the entrees, especially the Chicken Jerusalem and Salmon Lagaria entrees. I wish I knew how to make sauces like those... More

I guess you never know what you're getting but I really wanted a nice glass of wine. We bought a bottle of Italian wine and maybe it colored the evening with pleasure but I'd say it was the food and everything. The pumpkin soup was rather amazing, even my fussy husband said so. I had some cheese raviolis, and then... More

Fridays are perfect for the green chili chicken soup. Excellent menu of salads, sandwiches (love the pecan chicken salad sandwich, the portobello mushroom and blue cheese). I like it for business meetings as it is generally quiet with an attentive staff. Great desserts from cream puffs to cheese cakes - you can watch the cakes being made on the premises.... More

My bride and I had dinner here in the middle of the week. We had a great time. The live music was a fantastic touch. We started off with a glass of malbec each, reasonably priced and very good. We ordered a starter of the pumpkin bisque, which was incredible, and a house salad with Italian dressing, which was average.... More

During a long southwestern trek we wanted to get some take home to our hotel after an exhausting 12 hour drive from Texas. I found this restaurant recommended by our hotel and went there to obtain some food. Let me say two things: (1) I wish we had dined in! The place is fabulous as a restored Ranch House, impeccably...

They seem to have "spruced up" the interior a bit. They have two large Italian type paintings in the downstairs (= street level) dining room. We hadn't been there in awhile and were warmly greeted and remembered. It was not very busy Tuesday evening about 5:30 pm. This time we had the Greek salad, which was OK, but I think... More

I was here for work and heard about this place from a friend. I knew to manage my expectations since I am used to quite a different culinary experience and I always review with this in mind. The desserts were surprisingly good. I had the pizza for dinner and it is worth referring. This is a quaint place and it... More
