We love the atmosphere, the food is excellent, the staff is attentive, it's clean and you feel a if you are in Italy. They have the best sea bass, jalapeno cheese grits, wedge salads, wine list... Lovely, romantic dinner? This is the place.

My wife and I had arrived in Amarillo at the end of a drive up from Dallas. We were just passing through and she was disappointed when we learned there was an hour wait for a dinning room table so we grabbed sat at a table in the bar -- which were also in demand. Great food, friendly service.
