Let me start by saying that the ambiance and service is very nice. Our waiter was attentive and did well. I had heard a lot of this place and it had been recommended, so I was expecting an excellent meal. Unfortunately it was a bit...More

We had our first visit here since moving to Missoula. We loved everything about it. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable and not overbearing at all. I think the food was worth the price, which wasn't terrible.

Line out the door, but very much worth the wait. Everything we had got rave reviews: Penne Isabella, Linguini alla Carbonnara, Brick Oven Pizzas and plenty of nice wine. Shelby did a fabulous job waiting on us.

Wonderful Penne Pasta alla Vodka (we can't find better anywhere!) and Insalata con Salmone (grilled Pacific salmon on a bed of greens), attentive service, great wine list. Always fun Italian music. And Missoula people-watching out windows!

Husband and I are here before the Mumford & Sons concert. We waited for 40 minutes. They use good old fashioned paper and pen to organize their waitlist. Once seated, we were served quickly. We are kids at heart and enjoyed “coloring” on the paper...More
