This very pleasant restaurant is across the parking lot from the Canyonlands Inn. For a day that was threatening rain it doesn't get much more convenient. My server was excellent - efficient, pleasant, available at need. My dinner was Stuffed Chicken Genovese. That was a breast of chicken stuffed with italian sausage, roasted red pepper, provolone, and mushrooms and served... More

Our hotel staff recommended this place in the heart of Moab. A short wait provided us a table on the patio - great for a lovely evening. Service was friendly, Caesar salads were good. It was very busy (Labor Day weekend) and rather noisy, but otherwise pleasant and reasonably priced.

This was our first trip to Moab, and we will return, but not to this place. The food was okay, but who can enjoy a meal while the fat little waitress (Mallory, Marjorie?) talks about herself and her boyfriend the whole time??? We tried to be nice, but she wouldn't stop complaining. We couldn't enjoy the food (which was good)... More

We ate a late dinner here after a big day hiking. For a family of 4 hungry people- it satisfied each and every one of us. The portions are generous and the food is home made and hot. The lasagna special- that they only make once a week- was definitely the best meal of the bunch. Obviously fun to sit... More

The food was good and the atmosphere was nice, but unfortunately we went on a night when there was a massive wedding party eating there. That meant it was crowded and loud and the service was completely in the weeds with large-top tables. The pasta was good and I'll bet the ambiance is great when it isn't overly-full. The price...

The service was excellent and the food was pretty good too, although it's not authentic italian cuisine. Both my husbad and i had pasta with chicken although mine was the Monday special. both had their signature tomato sauce. Outdoor seating is nice and service was fast and friendly. Good to try!

The food was really pretty good, in the right proportions, and priced fairly. But what you had to see while eating.... One employee was putting on her makeup at the bar/counter and then transitioned right into rolling silverware without washing her hands. Lots of chit-chatting among the employees. One kitchen employee was texting --maybe on a break? Another cook had... More

We stopped in for dinner after a big day of hiking, kayaking, and shopping. We expected the food to be good and found it to be outstanding. The service was great and the people were very friendly.

Bad food, horrible service and expensive for quality of the food. Was $100 for 2 adults and 2 kids sharing a kids meal...wow! I ordered the tortellini and they brought it out in a plate that was straight out of the oven and without warning I took a bite and my tongue was scalded...the next day I could barely talk.... More
