“First time a charm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

We have been in Flagstaff for years, but first time here for dinner.
Very traditional Italian spot. Not trendy or fancy. Located in a funky mall off Route 66.
Family operated with very friendly service - they seem to have a local following.
Good variety of traditional Italian dishes, with great recipes intact. Reasonable carafes of wine.
Quiet. Good alternative to busy downtown area. Convenient to Route 66 motels.

“Blown away with this place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

found this through Yelp on our first trip to Flagstaff. Wanted good food and a glass of wine. had just driven from Phoenix after flying in from Washington. this place is located in a strip mall on Highway 89. The outside isn't great, however, bI was hungry so decided to try it. Didn't have time to tour Trip Advisor. ordered a glass of Pinot Gris for $6.75. Was good, then ordered the Fetticini with chicken and mushrooms. wow, was not expecting the burst of flavor from this dish. I finally asked the very helpful waitress what was in it and she said, sherry and heavy cream. So, no gluten free or less calories.

My husband had the Veal Parmigiana. he was most satisfied with this dish also. We don't find veal where we live.

Do not judge the restaurant from the outside. Wonderful, well priced, traditional Italian cuisine and the service was spectacular!

“Great local place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

We went to this restaurant on suggestion by our hotel, and they were spot on. Family ran Italian restaurant with a comfortable feel. The food was great and even got to speak with Chef Tony. Don't get that kind of service in most restaurants these days! Will definitely choose their restaurant the next time we are in Flagstaff!

“Didn't live up to its billing.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

Saw this was rated as the best Italian place in town. Service was good but we were disappointed that our different meals were covered with the same sauce which was over powering.
