The food was great! The service Excellent! Had a ladies group party. The servers took great care of us. We didn't have to ask for anything.

The food was good, but the service left a lot to be desired. I hope she was a new waitress if not she has no excuse. My husband had lasagna I only ordered a Caesar salad which came with way too much dressing and they had no grated cheese. The appetizer came after my salad obviously since that's all I... More

Expecting something better based on all of the positive reviews posted here. Small restaurant in the corner of a strip center, with a nondescript interior that offers no atmosphere to speak of. Prices are reasonable, and service is attentive, but the food is at best OK, not particularly noteworthy. If you feel obligated to dine in Magnolia you could do... More

This restaurant is a great little surprise for those of you traveling through Magnolia. Hidden in the corner of a strip center, when you walk in, the Italian atmosphere immediately catches your eye. The food is prepared when you order, so it is fresh. And all of the cheesecakes are made in house. Can't be beat.

My husband and I eat here frequently and find the pasta to be consistently good. The salads are freshly chilled with crisp lettuce and homemade dressings. The pizzas are homemade, with a crispy crust, and just delicious. One night we split a large one and even took some home. A varied menu shows their variety of sauces and meats, seafood... More

Very good food with excellent prices. My server was excellent and attentive. The size of the place is much bigger than it looks from the outside.

This is our all time favorite Italian restaurant. Don't let the shopping strip location fool you. Once inside, it's like stepping into a small piece of Italy complete from the decor to the music. Hot bread and a decent selection of wines await you. Our preference is Monday - Wednesdays because they have a deal waiting for you. For a... More

My wife and I found this small Italian Restaurant almost by accident and are really glad we did. I had the Italian sandwitch, which was great and my wife had the chicken piccata. She said that the sauce was delightful and chicken was tender. We will go back when we are in Magnolia tomorrow. The service was excellent and most... More

Had dinner the other night. They have $10 dinner specials Mon, Tues, and We'd. A pasta dish, soup or salad, and a piece of cheesecake. You can't beat the price and the food is very good. We had the eggplant rollatini with salad and our son had his with the soup. The dessert was a special that my son had... More

Terrific Italian food. Hot from the kitchen. Great prices and good wine. Pizzas are not Chicago pizza, but come pretty close.
