Thanks for joining us. The saying is true. You get what you pay for. Our wine does not come out of box. The bread pudding is made with heavy cream. Compare prices at any finer restaurant. We are not Olive Garden. Grazie!

Food is good and tasty. The service was a little slow but OK considering it is usually crowded. Definitely will return for more dining.

Reservations are recommended since it gets busy for dinner. A little pricey for the middle of Colorado but it is a college town, vacation area, and near a major ski resort.
