“Excellent food, but last time I was there they did not split checks.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

I have been here for the lunch buffet several times and it is really good. I haven't been back because they do not split the checks (unless the waiter does it by hand). This makes it difficult when you are dining with co-workers or friends.

I enjoy the dinner menu. Sometimes the service is slow, but the food is good so I can ignore that most of the time.

“Outstanding experience all around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013 via mobile

Stopped for lunch travelling thru Dixon due to great reviews on Trip Advisor. Absolutely loved it - excellent waitress, cozy yet elegant Italian decor, delicious minestrone & Caesar salad, & the best squash ravioli off my life - they tint the homemade pasta w calamari ink, how cool is that. Reasonable prices & perfectly sized portions. It was the ideal dining experience on all levels - I want to go back at night for a romantic evening.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

Last night we ate there and it was amazing. I had the paesano sauce with fettuccini and it was one best meals ever. My husband had chicken franchese and my daughter had spaghetti Bolognese. All were very good but the paesano was the best. Excellent service and atmosphere. What a treat!
