One of our favorite places to eat in The woodlands. Bob Ham makes sure that we have our special pizzas made for us, and love his wine tasting each time we come. Amongst the many restaurants in the Woodlandz we consider this our favorite family place to eat Italian and other specialities.

I took a group of my team for a business lunch as the restaurant had been recommended. Service was extremely slow, food was simply underwhelming. I will not go back. My wife said her meal was poor quality, also. Simple Italian food is not that hard to make delicious- but they succeeded in doing a poor job across the board.... More

We had worked all day Saturday setting up an office and decided to drop in for dinner. Sat at table in bar area, as there was no wait (and usually our preference). We were just looking for good food. The martinis were perfect, as they had blue cheese olives. Lamb chop special was excellent. Should have passed on the appetizer,... More

I ordered an antipasto and cesar salad for 20-24 people for a party that I was having and arranged to pick them up at 2:00 on the day of the party. When I arrived at the restaurant there was no one there to help me, I waited and waited and then I noticed a bag on one of the bar... More

My husband & I have enjoyed this restaurant for several years, so he chose it when coworkers wanted to have a retirement dinner. Our group consisted of residents of Houston, Austin, Dallas, California, and Florida. Everyone was pleased with their meals (steak, Chicken Barry, & daily special of homemade pasta) & choice of wines. The evening was perfect when topped... More

We visited this as part of a Group and the food was Good and the service excellent. They seemed to have a number of items and a real family ownership model.

This is a well run family owned restaurant. The food in great and we love the service. It's not a chain-type place so you get personal attention.

Nice atmosphere. Good service. Food - average. Had vegetable bisque as an appetizer and is was very watery, no character. Waitress agreed. Entre's were good but nothing special. Borderline value. Ok but could be much better.

Meh. Nothing special at all with the food. Service was good and the establishment is nice but the food is safe and very middle-of-the-road. The caesar's salad was passable, the potatoes had absolutely no flavor and the steak was good but not great. The steak was about the same quality as a run-of-the-mill chain restaurant.

Pretty pedestrian Italian food. My wife had spaghetti and meatballs and I had the half moon ravioli. Both were OK but not worth getting again. The staff and service were pretty good, however.
