“Overpriced and pretentious”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

This place is right by the CDA Resort so it gets a lot of traffic. The food is overpriced for the quality and preparation. It tastes like frozen food microwaved.

“Decent food, NOT gluten friendly”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

This restaurant came up on my gluten free app as a local place to dine. However, once I had ordered the only gluten free pasta on the menu (Spaghetti noodles) and asked them to double check the sauce (their spaghetti sauce was NOT gluten free) I was not overly impressed.
Our waiter was great and took the time to investigate for me, but I was frustrated with the options.
My non gluten free friends enjoyed the restaurant and ordered many appetizers in place of a full dinner and they were VERY happy with their choices, especially the fried zucchini and sweet potato fries.
It was a nice place to try, but I am not sure I would go again!

“Olive Garden in disguise”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

This has the look, feel, service and taste of a chain Italian restaurant. Here Italian cuisine is defined by the amount of garlic and the service defined by the youth, inexeprience and lack of supervion of the wait staff. I would normally never walk into anything that even looked like this place but acted upon the misguided recommendation of my hotel. This is not real Italian, not even a good imitation.

“To Die for!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

We went here while traveling for one month to 9 different states & this was my favorite restaurant! The Garlic Romano Fries - Crispy fries, garlic, Romano cheese & olive oil was the best I've ever tasted in my life of 51 years. It could have fed 4 people comfortably and was considered an appetizer. The rest of the meal (spaghetti & meatballs, chicken marsala) was wonderful too. There was a mix up so we ended up receiving an extra dinner of chicken parmesan. We had 2 glasses of wine also and the entire bill was only $60!! With all the leftovers, it fed my husband, doggie and myself 3 more times on our trip while camping! We will be sure to return when visiting again! Too bad you aren't in AZ.
