Had great food and great service! I do feel like a second class citizen by the Maitre D. He tends to want to seat us in the busiest noisiest seats in the restaurant.

This place is just south of the river. The carpaccio way great and the lobster ravioli had decent chunks of lobster in them. Nice wine list complements the menu. Reminds me of some wonderful spots in the Midwest. Great place for dinner. Take a daye, you can't go wrong.

My husband and I looked at the online menu before trying this restaurant. I seen a picture of something that caught my eye. When we got there, nothing on the menu resembled it. I asked the waitress and told her it appeared to be spaghetti carbonara. She asked the cook and sure enough it was. Even though it was no... More

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

We had a total of six people in our group...RV traveling friends...one couple suggested La Famiglia...and all of us were very pleased with our meals. Everything was delicious. Very happy with the service and the atmosphere of La Famiglia. Definitely would go again.
