Closed. It was great while it lasted. What do I have to do to indicate a very good restaurant no longer exists.\? I adding this sentence only to achieve the defaulted minimum of 100 characters. There needs to be an easy way to indicate that a restaurant that I formerly reviewed is no longer open for business.

Tried to have an Italian dinner with my wife and the place is closed. Sun faded curtains in the windows and paper covering the glass on the door. Was able to see enough of the inside to determine most, if not all, of the furniture has been removed. Go elsewhere.

Excellent home cooked italian food. The meatball & sausage pasta was very good, as tasty as anything you'd get in Italy. The service was first class - they earn't their tip which is unusual these days. May be the only constructive criticism I could make, is that a wine list would be good. It seemed extremely good va

After a day at the volcano, we were hungry and tired...greeted by a pleasant server then served by Marisa who was excellent! The caesar salad was superb (and I am a Caesar fanatic) and the pasta with pesto tasted like the pesto had just been picked. My husband had the lasagne - tomato sauce tasty with sausage and mushrooms. We... More

We had the lasagna and the chicken/shrimp alfredo dishes. Both were pretty good, and at quite reasonable prices. The staff was friendly and helpful, but seemed to be a little over-stretched. This would have been a 4, but the calamari we got as an appetizer was easily the worst we have had. Other than that, it is worth a stop... More

We arrived hungry and left satisfied. Our salads were crisp and dry. The pasta was done al dente. The entrees were delicious and served in large quantity. Service was professional and attentive. The wine list featured no name brands but our wine turned out fine. This place is located in old downtown and parking can be challenging.

The menu is limited but the food is very tasty. Watch what you order because they ask if you want soup or salad but it's not included with your meal. They charged us an additional $7 for the salad. Everything was good but not worth the cost of the meal.

Boy, Cafe Pesto was a zoo...so we decided to look elsewhere for lunch, and sure glad we did. I had the Ahi caesar salad and was quite happy with it. My wife had the Ono in the lemon caper sauce with the eggplant parmigiana and pasta. Very tasty. Reasonably priced lunch. Friendly waitress. A great value and tasty as well.

Odd hits and misses…a couple of us ordered the spinach salad and it was devoured with great gusto…very fresh with giant tomato slices on top. I ordered the Caesar salad and it was a soggy mess. Had little if any flavor to it and the lettuce was wallowing in a watery broth of who knows what. We also ordered a... More
