Great ambiance, all of our courses were expertly prepared and presented. We started with Carpaccio, served with lemon sauce, capers and arugula, which was wonderful. We then had servings of lobster ravioli and saltimbocca, all excellent. All accompanied by a tasty bottle of Valpolicella. We'll definitely be back for more tastings!

Great Italian food. Thought I was in Little Italy, NYC. The mushroom sacchetti were excellent. Brother-in-law had a lovely lobster ravioli and my sister had a lamb dish which looked delicious, but as a vegetarian, I avoided. The music in the background was Frank Sinatra. Perfect.

This the best Italian food I've had outside of my own kitchen. It's fresh, seasoned perfectly, not too salty (like so many restaurants), and served beautifully.

You probably need a reservation. Main restaurant was full when I was done dining. Since I did not have a reservation, they were able to seat me in the bar/lounge, which was fine with me as I was dining solo. The bartender/waitress was very friendly, and seemed to make everyone happy and comfortable. Food was served quickly and was piping... More

Ate here before a performance at the Pioneer Center. I get that the staff may be stressed due to being full but Wild River Grill still makes you feel special when they are fully booked. Making the reservation was painful as they hung up on me before I could confirm the date and time. When we arrived, they pointed to... More

Manager/Owner's attitude toward first time diner's unethical of a supposedly over highly rated Restaurant. We booked a 5:30 reservation for 3 a week and a half prior to dine here New Years Eve. When we got there, the Manager put us in a back room with no pleasantry at all. We were the only ones in there. The main dinning... More

Wow! Husband and I walked from our downtown condo over to La Famiglia early on a Saturday night. We had no reservations, however, because we were there early and promised to be finished by 7 pm, the proprietor graciously accommodated us with good humor and grace. Hubby had the veal piccata, which was melt in your mouth good! It was... More
