One of the best restaurant experiences we have had in a long, long time! It is the next day and we are still smiling. I am Italian and my husband proposed after one of my garlicky meals; he has always said no restaurant could come close to my cooking, but last night he told me I had "met my match"...Nothing...

This was the first time eating here, and it will not be our last. The homemade pasta made daily was outstanding! The homemade sauces were just as good as anything my sweet Sicilian grandmother makes. This will always be a destination for us when we are in Reno.

The best Italian meal I've had in years, maybe decades. Good food. Fresh ingredients. Good service. It's nice to get out of the casinos and enjoy and a quiet, elegant meal. Prices are reasonable, too.

The restaurant is in a convenient location in downtown, near the Pioneer Center. The service was outstanding, the waiter was very attentive and very Italian, a little hard to understand. The ambiance is very nice. Having said those two things, the food was average at best. Reno has many Italian restaurants and La Famiglia is no better than average when... More

I ate at La Famiglia twice on a recent business trip to Reno and had a great experience both times. The food is good, but not great, southern Italian fare. The real highlight here is the service which is always great!

La Famigila Italian restaurant in Reno has a charming atmosphere. There is a nice variety on the menu along with some daily specials. The prices are very fair and the service is excellent. They try to make you feel like part of their family.

We have a house in Reno so will be going to many of the good eateries, and I would recommend La Famiglia without reservation. Family owned and operated and the care put into the food and service shows. Highly recommend this place if you want really good quality italian food served by people who care.

Location is great, very near the Philharomic and in the Art District. Excellent wine choices, classic Italian dishes - I had the Lasagna - and salad. All were first class. White table cloths and big picture windows. We had dinner for 6 and had no problem. Would be great for a memorable "date for two" as well.

Thank Robert B
