They were very busy so we ate at the bar. Service was good and their pasta is delicious. We had Lasagna and it was very good. We did not like their version of Tiramisu, that's why the 4 stars. Will return.

The service was excellent as was the bread but would have preferred oil and herbs instead of butter for the bread. The veal parmigiana was average with little flavor. The same could be said for the lobster ravioli. The basic ingredients are good just need...More

We chose to come here on a whim as we were hungry and passing through Lake Havasu City, and it was a great choice. I don't think we've ever experienced a waiter who embodied great service more - Corey made the meal an experience to...More

As my husband says... If you leave an Italian restaurant hungry, something's wrong. Both of our dishes tasted ok, but we're nothing special and the portions were extremely small for the price and not even a salad for filler. We won't be returning.
