Not only is the Italian restaurant extremely good, so was the service. Very friendly, It is the kind of service you never forget. We all ordered very different dishes from a delicious steak, to a linguini with shrimp, to a fresh salmon fillet. All extremely flavorful, very well prepared. And the deserts were amazing as well.

We eat here at least once a week and have for over a decade. Fun atmosphere w/ great cafe type staff. Not a business meeting place....let's of loud talking w/ table close to each other....but very fun.

We were starved after leaving the casino. We happened upon this little gem. It was authentic Italian dining, for sure. The price was completely reasonable. The food was great!

Absolutely fantastic trattoria in a most enchanting setting over the mountain. Great, friendly staff and an amazing owner who is most entertaining. The food is fantastic and creative. We had a local red wine which was a perfect pairing with all dishes. Do yourself a favor and make a stop here.

Small restaurant, so it is noisy. Great homemade pasta! I had the spinach tortellini and my wife had the pressed chicken; both very good. Wonderful, light sauce with the both. House wine is produced for them and was yummy! Almond cream pear tart was a great way to finish the meal. I would make a reservation. There is a saloon... More
