We spent the weekend catching a little R & R. Some friends of ours live in Ruidoso and took us here on Thursday night. They highly recommend getting reservations and that is probably the smart move anyway. We had a party of 8 and were seated as we did have reservations. We had some our drinks and snacked on the bread they serve while waiting on others to arrive. I ordered the special which was the Ravioli. It was three cheese with basil and spinach and it was just awesome. My wife ordered the Chicken Parmigiana and it came with two very large chicken breasts instead of just one. She had a great house salad and I had a cup of minestrone soup instead of the salad. The salad and the soup were excellent. We tried the scallops that someone else had ordered and they were also great. We were also able to sample the risotto and it was just perfect. We will be back every time we are in town for this great Italian food. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed.
