Awesome food!

My family stopped here over the Halloween weekend. We really enjoyed their food. We had a greek salad, pizza & spaghetti. Everything was delish!!!! I would eat here more if I lived closer.

Please note: this restaurant isn't really in Newland, it's in nearby Pineola. Reviews sounded promising, and I was really looking forward to giving this place a try. I really like their patio...would be a really nice for an outdoor meal or drinks, three seasons out of the year in this area. It was quite nippy the day I visited, so... More

Almost out in the middle of nowhere, my son and I stumbled upon this little jewel after spending the day on the nearby parkway. Not fancy by any means, but a cozy family restaurant. They have the best calzones in the high country, and take my word for it because I have tried them all! I wish I could brag... More

This place is a local favorite and it is always good. The is an old-school pizza parlor that also serves other Italian dishes too. There's even a drive-up window for orders that are called ahead, just like the good old days before fast food and pizza delivery. Open year round for meeting your summer hiking needs as well as after... More

Our family (4 kids, 3 adults) stopped in having heard good things. Obviously I heard incorrectly. The tea is instant, and the food is overpriced and is the most mediocre we've had. If this is the best Italian you've had, try Chef Boyardee, it's actually better. $14 for 5 small ravioli. The kids ate the pizza without complaint, but then... More

I went on a Labor Day-weekend evening - it was crowded. I assumed that was normal for a holiday weekend in the mountains and assumed - erroneously - that more staff would be added to compensate. We were seated fairly promptly, waited 20 minutes to order water, waited 15 more for the water to arrive and place our orders, waited... More

Stopped on way back from Boone on 221. Really good Italian food, great service, reasonable prices. Calzone was large enough to split. Marinara sauce with meatballs along with hot Italian bread and our dinner was perfect.

They have a marvelous marinara sauce. You can taste the San Marzano tomatoes or at least one that grown in that same region. This sauce is so sweet and wonderful. Not sweet from sugar. I use the Marzano tomatoes at home and I know the difference in the taste. You can taste the quality ingredients in their pizza. The lasagna... More
