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!

We stopped in for Sunday lunch. Soup of the day was Lobster Bisque. It was delicious. A "cup" is really a bowl and a "bowl" was quite large. I ordered Chicken with a creamy brandy dill sauce (I can't remember the name). It was rich and wonderful. The favors blended together so nicely that the dill and brandy were hints... More

Very good Italian food, reasonable prices - hard to beat in the Canyon Lake area! Restaurants seems to have a hard time surviving in this area, and this one has stood the test of time.

The fried calamari reminded me of being in Red Square on the island of Sardinia. It was one of the best that I have had in the US. Each entree was flavorful, well-prepared, and generous. We had the Greek gyro, the tilapia piccata, and a special pasta with shrimp, artichokes, etc. Very attentive server. Will definitely return in future.

We went to Hill Country Resort on Canyon Lake. The choices appeared to be limited and we were driving around and saw this place that looked busy, we decided to try it. The service was very good and the food excellent. We had the bruschetta, and the lamb kabobs and tenderloin kabobs, and a small Greek salad. The salads were... More
