I take some pride in judging italian food as I do come from the East coast (hope I'm not sounding too pretentious there)...all in all it was pretty good.
To start off they gave us a ridiculous italian roll for bread. You know the kind you make sandwich with. It was weird. Regardless the balsamic vinegar and olive oil on the side made it taste just fine. Was a just a bit bizarre.
Appetizer special: rice balls stuffed with sausage...it tasted excellent and the red sauce it was served in was pretty good. The rice balls themselves were the stars of the dish.
Salad: a very average casear salad with what seemed to be straight out of the can anchovies...was a not a huge fan of them.
Dinner special: I had homemade pasta with a wild boar ragu which was pretty great. My girlfriend had the chicken piccata which I had a taste of...it was also very good as well. The best thing hands down was the homemade pasta. It tasted so fresh.
All things considered including price this was a very good italian spot. More than I ever expected for a place in South Lake Tahoe. I would definitely come here again.
