I went for lunch on a very cold day and ordered the tomato soup which was very good. The service was excellent, but what got me was the atmosphere. The seating is so comfortable and relaxed that with the good food I felt like I was dining, not just eating. A place to go and enjoy, without hurrying or rushing.

I was in town on business and came here for dinner. The staff were pleasant and friendly. The food we ordered was delicious. It was a big portion so I couldn't even finish my lasagna or bread. They have a long happy hour. We just missed it at 9pm but they still gave me the special. It was very satisfying... More

Great service and the pizza was delicious. You have to try the white shrimp pizza. I highly recommend it. New management.

Lasagna was delicious. I wish for the price it would have included a salad. DELICIOUS dessert called Toscachon... I highly recommend it. My Next visit will only be the toscachon with a hot rich coffee.

The appetizers are very good, specially the smoked salmon, maybe because there is no cooking involved. But the entrees are OK. Last time we went the pasta we ordered was barely warm. Another disappointment. It had happened before. We like the place because on Thursdays and Friday there is a good piano player. The place has potential with a new... More

For an early Valentine celebration, I took my wife out for a special Italian dinner. The restaurant is impressive as you walk in, decor in black and dark artwork, waiter staff in black, with touches of color in the seating. A glance at the menu confirms with appetizers between $10 - 20, entrees in the $20 - 30 range. A... More

A great place for a change of pace from Mexican food when staying in Brownsville. The atmosphere and decor is somewhat hipster, although slightly shopworn. Service is good and the food was surprisingly good. Pasta dishes were not overly large and nicely sauced - we had the seafood spaghetti with white wine sauce and a pasta with proscuitto in a... More

We held our son's wedding rehearsal dinner at this restaurant and the food, service, and atmosphere were perfect for this event. The staff went above and beyond to help set up a video to show during our dinner. All preparations were done long-distance by e-mail and communications were superb! Everything that was promised was delivered and all the guests were... More

What can you say about an Italian restaurant that is owned by and staffed by Mexicans that only like Mexican food. Nothing Italian about the place. Waiters do not know the menu and don't really care to know it. Saw food dropped on floor and then served to a customer. Open kitchen means watch what you do but these cooks... More
