My parents really like this place, and it's been in town for a long time, local-run, really good meat lasagna, but other than that it's just really average. They remodelled recently but I haven't been in since than, because I heard that with the remodel, they TOOK OUT THE SALAD BAR! This was the greatest thing ever (one of only 3 in town) and was a good value, because the food is kind of expensive for what you get. (Without the salad bar, there are better Italian places you can go in town for about the same price). However, I guess they added a new "wine bar" area too in the remodel, so if that appeals to you maybe you would like it...? The atmosphere (before remodelling anyway) was really cozy, like you were in an old Tahoe cabin, and they have good service here. I probably wouldn't go back though unless I was with my parents or if it was a busy holiday weekend (because they are so far away from the "tourist" area of town, there is never a wait).
