“Huge delicious portions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2011

Everything here is delicious in this wonderful family friendly italian restaurant. With extensive menu selections (calamari with artichokes, pizza, veal and chicken dishes, pastas, beef) , giant portions (we always have leftovers for the next day),great service in cozy atmosphere, this place is a winner. All entrees come with salad and italian bread loaf. Service is fast , friendly and efficient. Adults and kids of all ages love this TAHOE institution.

“Great Italian Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

Food is really good and ambiance is great. My favorite is the eggplant parmesan. Portions are quite large so I always end up with a takeout bag.

“Not as good as usual”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011

Me and my wife ate there the other day and I was a bit disapointed by the quality of the food. They have always been a favorite but I fear it may be taking a down turn. Maybe it was a slow Sunday and they had a new cook, not sure. I will try it again and hope for a better meal. I don't like focusing on the negative unless it is warrented. If anyone else has also noticed anything like this, maybe they will take note and get back on track.

“Great Italian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2011

I always hesitate to take my Italian family members to an Italian restaurant since they're always able to comment on whether they could make a particular dish better than the restaurant. Well this time, no such comments were necessary! Between the four of us, we had the house favorite, the Stuffed Lumaconi, the Joe's Vegetarian Casserole, the Roma Tomatoes with Angel Hair, and finally the Chicken Marsala! All of them were wonderful meals; the service was also great! We'll be back and that's a promise!

“Incrediable Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2011

We visit this restaurant every year we come to North Shore Lake Tahoe. They have fantastic Italian food. This year we took our friends who lived for 8 years in Italy and they remarked that it was even better than some of the food they had in Italy. Love this place.
