Me and my husband went here on Valentines Day and it was busy, but we had a reservation. They seated us right away and the food came quickly and was excellent. My family likes to stop here every time we come through Payson.

Nice upscale restaurant in Payson, Arizona. Good food and service. Loved the lasagna and soup that came with it. Also the rolls were fresh baked. A bit pricy, but good italian food. You won't be disapointed .

It's a tad overpriced, but the quality of the food is good. I was not impressed by their lunch buffet, but the salads were fresh.

Was craving the butternut squash ravioli but it was not the lunch special so I asked and it was going to be the dinner special. Soup for the day was Butternut Squash soup so an extra plus. Food is always scrumptious! Highly recommend!
