Seriously mediocre food and it looked like they took the menu straight from the Old Spaghetti factory menu. Although the food wasn't nearly as good.

Stopped here for dinner on a friend's recommendation and we were not disappointed. The spaghetti dinner was outstanding and loved the atmosphere. Very nice staff folks who can't help you enough! A return visit is definitely in the cards for this little gem!

Being in the hospitality industry for the past 20 years does give one experience, but it certainly does not make anyone a professional food critic. Yes, working with famous chefs and in "famous" restaurants with delicious food does mean... More

The chicken cacciatore is the real deal. When I have to drive to the eastern part of the state, I plan my departure fro Telluride so I can eat here. It is my favorite Italian meal in Colorado!!

A group of 6 of us walked in at 9pm on Thursday night and were greeted and seated right away. The staff was friendly and when our waitress needed to step away for an allergy attack someone else came right over to take our order. The food was delicious and portions were large. My husband and I split the meatballs... More
