Quaint

The service was average as no one greeted us as we entered or thank us for our service when we left. The waitress was not detailed to the small things. I had to ask for refills of my tea, a straw, and when we were leaving she brought a small take out box for a large pizza. I'd only eaten... read more

Started with Caprice salad. It was very good. One of us had chicken Elfredo. I had VIel Parmesan. It was delicious. The service was excellent and fast. Waitress was very attentive.

One of the best Italian restaurant I have dine in. Very authentic and tasty. If you are in Canyon Lake is a must. Every time we come to the Hill Country Resort we have to eat dinner here at least once.

On the North side of the Lake this Bistro has a good view of the lake. Eggplant Parmigiana was good, but I've had better. Plate presentation could use some work. Salad dressings were good. Wait staff was average.

We went for lunch on a weekend. It was not busy at all. The service was fast and friendly. I ordered the personal pizza and it was wonderful. I do wish they had a full bar because I really wanted a margarita.

Quaint restaurant run by an Albanien lady is basic in decor but the food is what it says on the tin. An accordionist was playing. Servers not used to serving wine and not by the bottle.

A very pleasant environment to enjoy quality Italian cuisine. Personally decorated by the owners. Classic Frank Sinatra tunes serenade the diners. Well worth a visit but bring your apppetite. The portions are huge.

We were seated right away (Monday night) and the service was excellent. We enjoyed the bread and oil, I joked that it was a macaroni grill rip off but the oil had garlic in it so not quite the same :) I had chicken parm, husband had chicken fettuccine Alfredo, daughter had spaghetti and meat balls, we all thought the...
