It's a great start when another guest comes up to you and asks you in Italian if you are from Italy. The restaurant has great food, and apparently is up to the standards of Italians in the Bend area. We had a delicious cheese plate, followed by pasta dishes that were filling and flavorful. The meatballs were like my Italian... More

I wanted very much to rate this as a top choice for Italian food in Bend. And in many ways it deserves an excellent rating. The bruschette is a first rate appetizer, marvelously prepared. My pasta - PENNE ALLA CARRETTIERA - was much spicier than any Tuscan dish I've had. The red peppers pack a wallop. In fact, too hot... More

For our first visit we found everything just fine. We had the cucumber salad and it was just right to share. Our main course dishes were very good with a lot of flavor and very light pasta.

Greeted and seated promptly; the restaurant was slammed, so we were glad there were only two of us. Server had a great sense of humor and made suggestions for meals. The cheese plate appetizer was tasty, but seemed a bit expensive at $13 for the amount we received. The meals were appropriately priced. Specialty drinks were fun.

This is the second time I have eaten here and dinner was fine. This was a mid-week night The fresh pasta was good and I was able to fine a reasonably priced Italian wine to my liking. Service very good

Chef Juri Sbandati brings authentic and delicious dining experience from his birthplace in Firenze. The menu has a wonderful range of appetizers, first and second courses Italian style, along with an excellent list of wines with an emphasis on Tuscan appellations. Typical of Tuscany, meat dishes are the stars, especially the Porchetta (porkchop) Toscana, the beef tenderloin on a bed... More

I have loved this place for years. The meals are consistently delicious. My only complaint is I would like to see more variety on the menu or perhaps as the dinner specials each evening. The last handful of times we were there- there were no dinner specials to offer (other than maybe a steak but if i am coming to... More

Wonderful New Years Eve Dinner - set menu with healthy wine pours and delicious fresh Italian food as usual. Staff always so positive- our houseguest loved it also.

Good service. Fantastic food. Loved the pasta with clams and shrimp. Same with funghi. Small. Intimate. Bar is tiny but pleasant. Local. Great for taking guests. Not for children but they r accommodated.

Perhaps the food is good - wouldn't know as our pasta dishes were undercooked, therefore inedible. Customer service was the worst we've ever seen. The "manager" was so rude, we literally walked out. Won't go back and will certainly spread the word. Absolute WORST dining experience period.
