We were here at lunch and wanted a spinach salad with shrimp( they charge 2.50 per shrimp plus the price of the salad). The server got the order wrong, and the person with me had chicken dish with mushrooms and pasta. She said the sauce was terrible and the mushrooms were old, she ate the bread. One of the worse...

This restaurant was a wonderful surprise in an out of the way place. My husband and I had two items off their special board for dinner. He had tilapia with shrimp in a brown butter sauce. I had a chicken breast stuffed with crab in a white wine lemon sauce. Both came with pasta and asparagus on the side. I... More

I will begin by saying that this restaurant is always busy. That is how we came to try it. We popped in early by most standards - 5pm. We were greeted immediately, and seated promptly. I and my wife both ordered "specials" (we try to do this at each new restaurant - specials should be to the chef's advantage); and... More

We recently visited Canyon Lake. When we asked about local restaurants we were immediately told about another Italian food restaurant in that area. We drove by it but there were very few cars there. We drove through the Canyon Lake "downtown" area and saw this family owned restaurant. It was cute in appearance and there were massive cars in the... More

If you are traveling in the Canyon Lake area of Texas and are craving Italian food then this is the place. We were there with 22 people and the service was excellent. They have a varied menu and the prices are very good. The food arrived quickly and was hot and tasty, with good size portions.

We spent the week in a Canyon Lake Timeshare. We arrived Sunday and did not feel like cooking, so I checked a few places and decided on this Greek-Italian restaurant. What a find. First, our server was one of the most pleasant and eager to help of any server I have ever had. My friend had eggplant parmigano and I... More

My daughter and her husband and their two children shared a meal here with me last week. Every one of us had an excellent tasting meal! I had the special, chicken breast stuffed with crab and covered in a picata sauce...yummy! The waitress was very accommodating, kind and enthusiastic. It was a relaxing, enjoyable supper out.

This was my first visit to the Italian Garden Café and I will certainly go back. Attentive but not overbearing waitstaff, yummy food (we had the spaghetti and meatballs and brushetta appetizer) and reasonable prices. Also, portions are large, so you'll probably have leftovers for lunch the next day.

We made reservations for a party of 12 which was nice that they could accommodate on a Saturday night and the service great. I ordered the chicken marsala and it was the worst version of that dish I've had. I'd go back again and order a different dish in hopes I just ordered a bad dish. It was loud but... More

This was our second visit to Italian Garden Cafe. And we were pleased again. Fresh food and creative specials. Excellent wait staff delivers drinks and food with a smile and does not rush. When we stay at Potter Creek COE park, we will once agina visit Italian Garden Cafe. This is our favorite diner on Canyon Lake.
