My hubby and I eat here often. The specials are great. There is alway homemade bread on the table and the house salad dressing is yummy. We often pick up their wonderful pizzas to go. The atmosphere is casual and the owners and staff are friendly.

Who would have thought that an excellent Italian restaurant could be found in the small town of Canyon Lake. IT'S THERE! The place was clean and nice, the menu was good, the food great, and the staff interested in you having a good meal. They also have good parking and very good pricing. On a 1/10 scale I rate them...

This restaurant was reasonable in price. Bread and oil provided (bread was delicious) and the lasagna and fettuccini were just as scrumptious. Atmosphere was quiet, at an early dinner hour (dusk). Server was personable and service was "on que". Can't wait for another visit!

We went for Father's Day dinner. It was great...much attention for the younger set. We all enjoyed our diner. Painted wall mural kept 7 yr-old's attention! Service was excellent!

My husband and I moved to Canyon Lake in 2004 and Italian Garden cafe has been our most favorite place to dine. The food is awesome and so is the wine.
