Just OK

Seated immediately at 6:00 without reservation. Played it safe and ordered pasta and meatballs. Pasta and sauce were ok but meatballs were hard and really didn't taste homemade. Our caprese salad and bread were very good. Dipping oil was so garlicky we stuck with just butter. Service was good... read more

We ate here last year and enjoyed our time, so we decided to get food for take out as it was already 9:30 pm. Fortunately, when we got the food we cut into it before eating. We were disgusted to see that the meatballs were RAW. Thankfully, we cut into them and didn't eat them. When we called to tell,... More

Love this place! Wonderful Italian food! The moment you walk in the door you smell a wonderful aroma coming from the kitchen. Have dined at many resturants in Lake Placid and this one is high on my list!

We are in Lake Placid for a conference and got here the night before. A colleague suggested this place. We walked in a light snow. The restaurant wasn't crowded and we were seated right away. We were near the window overlooking the lake...except it was night. The food was fantastic. The staff was friendly. If we have the chance we... More

We dined here 3 times during our week stay, it is that good! Service is 5 stay along with the food. I enjoyed the baked trout with a side lobster tail. The trout was fresh and lobster melted in my mouth, cooked to perfection. Can't wait to go back.

We enjoyed this place so much we almost went back a 2nd time during our trip. We were only in LP for three nights so we felt compelled to try another restaurant. The food is delicious, the service is on point and the décor is real nice.

Perfect choice....we had a great table downstairs by the window on the lake and it began to snow...it was great timing! All four of... More

Went to this restaurant expecting the best and got the worst! Service was lacking, food was lacking and customer service lacking. The only thing not lacking is their prices. It's expensive and portions were very small. Menu was not only paired down for holiday but no substitutions were allowed. Ridiculous really. One of the "featured" entrees was not available. A...
