Very nice restaurant, just too crowded. The cioppino has a very interesting selection of fish and is very tasty, the lasagna is great. Unfortunately the server was not as good. But we'll go back for the food.

This is by far the best restaurant in Salt Lake City! My husband and I go every time we attend the Eccles Theater. We drive from Wyoming, and love eating here. Valter himself mingles with the customers, and checks on the dishes as they come...More

The colorful owner is obviously enjoying every minute of interacting with customers, greeting, serving and pushing waiters around to do better. Keep it up. The food is classic Italian with very solid selection and good range wine list at reasonable prices., Every dish we tried...More
