This place was recommended to us by the hotel manager. We had been traveling for several days and tired of hit or miss meals. This restrurant is small and very popular, but we were seated fairly soon. The pizza we ordered was very good. Not quite what we were used to in NY, but tasty. Several people sitting near us...

This restaurant is under new ownership and I think that there are few things that the new owner needs to do. Firstly, the staff is not friendly.

Visiting friends in Montana. My friends have ordered take out pizza but had never dined inside and wanted to try it. Two of us went. As soon as you walk in you are hit with the incredible aroma of garlic and herbs from the kitchen. The restaurant is on the small side and we were lucky to be seated right... More

Just like a home cooked meal. Food was good I had the lasagna & beet salad. Very fresh and delicious. Nice atmosphere and very good service even though they were busy. I would absolutely go there again.

When in Rome has become one of our favorite local restaurants. Friendly, comfortable, good food, reasonable prices, and an excellent wine selection.

The pizza here is divine with a thin crust topped with a savory sauce and delicious meats and cheeses! The daily specials will not disappoint! This restaurant is on the West side of MT Hwy 35 in Bigfork.

Friends in Bigfork brought me here. The food compares to good Italian in any big city. I generally don't come to Big Sky Country to eat city food, but I ate here and loved it.

We picked up 3 pizzas at 5:30 (Saturday winter) and saw the restaurant fill up quickly. What a delicious menu! But takeaway is limited to pizza and salad. They are also only open 5-8, Tues-Sat. Great thin crust, hand tossed with top quality ingredients.

They have very different pizzas, something for everyone, even gluten free and vegan. They are a little difficult to find if you don't know where to look, but it's worth a call to them for directions.
