This is a great place to eat. They feature Italian & Greek food. We love it, from fresh salad to amazing baklava.

No you are not in little Italy - forget the piazza in Rome, you are in Texas Hill Country. The food is a shock to the system - Italian flavors and dishes seemed superior to those that are Greek inspired. We enjoyed every dish - we went back 2 days in a row! The first night veal Marsella , and... More

Canyon Lake has grown up and this restaurant, with both Greek and Italian traditions, is one example. Starting with good freshly baked bread, the meal was far better than we expected. The "spinach pie" (spanakopita) and chicken marsala were both exactly what they should have been and very good. The quality of the bread and the perfectly cooked chicken showed... More

We had a wonderful dinner here. We were greated by the hostess/server. She was very knowledgeable about the food and the owners. The owners are originally from Macedonia and Florence, and the food is definately based on the original homes of the owners. We had calamari which was okay, nothing special. The bread and dipping oil was yummy, yummy. Small... More

When we walked in the door the smell of Italian hit us (pleasantly) right in the face. Until the waitress greets you with How are ya'll doin' tonight? You would swear you are in Italy! Very nicely decorated and the food is excellent! Try the Bruchetta, awesome.

My wife and I last ate here 3.5 yrs ago and were in town and remembered it being good from our last trip through here. The homemade rolls are good, the salads are well above what you normally expect to receive. I tried the euro salad and was impressed. My wife had Chicken Picatta and I had the Chicken Spinach...

Our party of 20 was served as quickly as 20 can be served. Everyone enjoyed their dinners. The room where they set up the two tables worked out great. Thanks again!
