Excellent service and atmosphere for an intimate dinner. No waiting and quiet dining allow a stress free dining experience

wife had a beautiful chicken salad and i had a Calzone and soup. The soup was fine but the Calzone was almost burnt and that ruined the flavor

We had lunch here and we'll be returning. The menu has a large selection, the service and food were superb. I also enjoyed viewing the large, Mediterranean style wall mural in one of the dining areas - you don't see those very often anymore and it adds to the ambiance for those of us who like that style of art...

If you enjoy good old fashion Italian food, then this is the place to go. Our dinner group ate there recently and we all enjoyed our meals. We're talking about good ol' comfort food here. The tomato bruschetta appetizer was so flavorful and the NOT a soggy mess I've experienced elsewhere. My husband had the chicken and spinach lasagna with... More

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
