We ate here with another couple to celebrate my husbands birthday. They had indoor or outside dining. We chose to eat inside as there were already some big crowds dining outside.

Something for everyone. Very pleasant dining outdoors. I had the Stuffed Shells. Most excellent. Quick and attentive service and most willing to provide separate checks for our rather large group.

I would not say the food is excellent Italian but average. It was so busy it's difficult to judge the service, but I will say they work as fast as they can and provide drinks and water/tea refills as quickly as possible. As dinner progressed, the family - kid crowd thinned and chaos lessened. The staff deserves every penny you... More

In the middle of all the mess... music, travelers, crazy people, tourists (like us) we had a good dinner. Not fantastic, but good. Be prepared to wait for service because it it really, really busy at dinnertime. The servers try to be helpful but so many, many folks to serve. Just be patient and they will get to you (I... More

The service here is good and attentive especially for a tourist area. We had a few drinks and a pizza . The pizza was fine we didn't want to much to eat so it served us well. Overall a positive dining experience

Our friends and hosts brought us to this restaurant, it was an excellent choice for lunch, sat by the famous San Antonio Riverwalk. The location is simply wonderful. Shrimp Paesano is the signature dish so we all had a taster portion as an appetiser. It was delicious. You must have them if you go! For mains I chose Med salad... More

I do a lot of reviews and don't give out 5's easily. But there is really nothing that I can think of that they could have done better. Nice hostess. Great waiter. Perfect food. I ordered spaghetti and meatballs in a garlic olive oil sauce. It was great. I would go back for sure if I am in town again.... More
