One of my favorite places to eat. It's not too great if you want to visit, but the food is always good.

“nice quiet Italian dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2012

Our family of six (kids ages 9-14), enjoyed a very nice Italian dinner here on the road between Houston & Colorado. The interior of the restaurant is decorated like an Italian village, which the kids really enjoyed, and my husband & I found relaxing after the long drive. Service was quick, efficient, and knowledgable. All portions were generous & tasty. Our boys loved their beef lasagna and spicy sausage & pepper linguini. Girls enjoyed the kids menu. Our crab appetizer was very tasty, and my sea bass was delicious. Husband enjoyed his tenderloin with porteballa ragout. We did not drink wine or try dessert as we still had several hours to go on the road, but they looked good. We will eat here again the next time we're in the area!

“Don't go for the pasta”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2012

We thought this was and Italian place and were disappointed. We asked our server what she recommended, her first choices were the steaks and seafood. We should have stuck with our recommendations. We all ordered pasta, except for 1, he ordered the Oso Buco. It was honestly the strangest way to cook it we had ever had. My chicken parm was average, the other pasta I tried was the grossest thing I had tried in a long time, some kind of marsala. The atmosphere is good and the steaks probably are too, you can order with custom toppings.

“Best Date Night restaurant in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

Servers are always attentive, even when its busy. Friendly and helpful wine steward and the food is excellent 95% of the time, with a dip into the good range occasionally depending on who's in the kitchen.
