“Large portions - enough for 2”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

The pasta dishes are HUGE and could be shared by two easily . Staff was extremely pleasant. Food was pretty good but I probably would not make it a regular stop

“Very pleased!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

First, the folks that work here couldn't be more genuine and nice to be around if they tried. The service I received, truly, was a team effort. 2 of the busboys asked if I wanted dessert or coffee. When I asked for water they filled my glass and then returned with a small carafe. Excellent!

I had the chicken Parmesan. It was home mad, HUGE and extremely good. As was the bread, the salad, the salad dressing. Just a great relaxed informal meal. I paid $24 including a very good tip. This is a great choice!

“Unfortunate”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

Great food, excellent waitress. Unresponsive manager to a problem. When a patron requests a manager for an issue of sanitary nature one should appear.

“My favorite Italian. Golly it's good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

This is without a doubt the absolute best Italian food for 100 miles around. We will drive to North Shore from Reno just to eat there. I used to chef Italian food back in the day...this place puts me to shame. Yum! Gotta try the Lumaconi, pure Heaven. The Lasagna is terrific too. Heck why am I sitting here writing? I know where I'm having dinner tonite.

“Cozy, family friendly and tasty, too!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Great place to unwind after a day of playing in the snow or just hanging out with friends. I love the checkered tablecloths and hearty portions. My kids liked the pizza, I had the stuffed shells and my husband had the ravioli. Some chianti and quick service. we'll be back!
