We were there when they opened at 5:00 and had great seats by the window and excellent service. There is a full menu and good wine list.

i do not know what has happened to this restaurant. I used to make a bee line for it every time I visited the Hills, but this last visit was a disaster from the beginning to end. Reservations were made a few days in advance...More

On a recommendation, we had Sunday brunch here and it was really delicious. I had the Italian eggs Benedict which was great...served on a homemade English muffin, yum! Our waiter was very attentive and helpful. Also, the coffee was good.

This is not Italian- no flavor in meatballs or sauce. Manicotti had no taste and could be used as a lead weight! Bread was beyond awful! Server had no training!

Wow! Great food; the service sucks. Plan on spending a lot of time waiting.... We arrived at 5:30; served entree at 7:30. We have better places to go and better uses of our time.

My husband and I just happened to park across the street after coming into town from not seeing (fogged over) Mt. Rushmore. A very pleasant surprise to say the least. The service and food was wonderful. Had bruschetta, lasagna, and peach cannoli. Very yummy.
