Very Good Food, Poor Venue

I ordered lasagna which was excellent and my wife ordered chicken parmesan which was equally good. Restaurant appears to be sited in a renovated Pizza Hut, but no effort has been made to create the feel of an Italian restaurant. Great place to go if you are hungry for good Italian, but not the... read more

1st - the service was out of this world. Our server was beyond amazing. 2nd - the food... wow! 3rd - the amount of food for a reasonable price! Downfall - The venue not the prettiest, but that can totally be overlooked! Totally recommend!

We went there with family and friends - good value for the money, plenty of large pizza, but nothing out of the ordinary

Great place to go if you are hungry for good Italian, but not the place to take a date.

I'm a Jersey Girl so Italian food is extremely important to me. Rather, it being done right is important to me and this by far is the best Italian food I've had in New Mexico! That being said, we almost walked out when we first arrived. The venue is terrible. The place looks to be a renovated Pizza Hut where... More

Was pleaseantly surprised! I only had a short amount of time to spare. The food was hot and ready! It was surprisingly tasty despite the simplicity of its environment. Luxurious food for the casual connoisseur!!

We arrived and were seated immediately. It took a little while for our waitress to come and take our drink order. We ordered an appetizer and our food at the same time as our drinks since it took so long for them to take our drink order. They brought our food quickly but never brought our appetizer. I thought the... More

We were driving from Amarillo TX to Ruidoso NM got hungry and decided to stop in Roswell for dinner. The restaurant was not very busy so we were seated quickly and served our drinks with bread. The menu is basic and somewhat limited but as expected for this area. The food came after a short wait and was tasty but... More
