“One of the best restaurants in the Wood River Valley”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

At the beginning of summer when I heard Il Naso had been sold, I thought it might take years to get back on top. The new owner Sam was a waiter at the old Il Naso and has preserved the decor and ambiance from the old days. The only description I can give is that it is a very comfortable restaurant. The food is exceptional. My wife had an elk chop with a dusting of bitter chocolate, I had veal saltimbocca and both were a delight. It was a cold evening in January and the bisque to start with was perfect. The staff is very congenial, there is no sense of being rushed, they have a very good wine list, and the price is reasonable.

We had the most delicious meal, and loved the restaurant. The chicken saltimbocca and pastas ware spectacular. There were eight of us and we all loved it!

Enjoyed our dinner at il Naso. The waiter suggested the lasagna which was excellent. Also got the elk. So, so good. Finished with tiramisu and coffee. Delicious!

“Best Italian food in....Italy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

Great ambiance, wine list and service but the food is past amazing! Chef Kate does magical things in that kitchen. Not only is the menu creative and the food incredibly delicious but she is totally accommodating for any and all food allergies. The veal scallopini is better than any you will find in Italy!

“Good Italian fare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

The food is good, and the bar is cozy. The dining room tables can be too tightly placed together, however, which can detract from the dining experience.
