Nice service

Good place to eat, good pizza, but I would recommend you to order the thin crust pizza. A good place to eat.

We always enjoy hot, fresh minestrone soup after skiing in the winter. This time it was custom ordered pizza and delicious lasagne in June! Always a favorite stop when we are in Ruidoso.

Small, convenient, friendly staff. If you want a quiet spot, pick a booth at the end. Large families with small children are frequent.

All of the food me and my family ordered had a great taste. We received great service from the host and waitress during our meal. The Chicken Alfredo is a little pricey for pasta, breaded chicken, and sauce.

Get the half orders as they are lot of food & the food is mediocre. Service was good. Charges extra for credit & debit cards 50 cents & food lacked warmth.

The food here was good. Definetly not like eating at Olive garden or other italian chain restaurants. Taste like homemade italian dishes. Not sure how authentic tho. Worth a try! Limited Italian in Ruidoso.

This place was ok, but not great. We ordered Parmesan chicken sandwiches, which were mostly white bread- just a little meat and cheese. Thank goodness we ordered salads. They did not have a liquor license- we would have loved a glass of wine.

We love the lunch specials!!!! We eat here often! Ask for Dixie, you will not be disappointed. Fast friendly service and a great price! The portions are large and the food is great. We have only had one issue with a server named Stevie, very unprofessional. But other than that, we love to eat here!!!!
