On a Wednesday night when it is 103 degrees and an Italian restaurant is packed to the rafters after being open just short of 50 years, you just know it is exceptional! All I need to say is get the Shrimp Paesano. It is the...More

The place has good Italian food which is great except summer in San Antonio. Lol. Need a few lighter items on the menu for summer. Otherwise great place.

We enjoyed our excellent meal and service, and were happy that our request to be seated in the (quieter) side room on the North side of the restaurant was honored. Many of the dishes come with a nice house salad and a choice of pasta...More

Everyone had nice plates, and we had great outdoor service. The spot this restaurant is in is really nice on the River Walk. It's worth your time.

The dish I had was very good and the atmosphere was nice. The service was highly disappointing though. The waiter was not at all attentive, did not ask us how our meal was, did not ask if we wanted another drink, etc.

The food was very delicious. The service was timely, friendly and impeccable. The Calamari was the best I've ever eaten. The stuffed snapper was out of this world. All in all... this restaurant hit it out of the park :)

Amazing food. Lots for your money and fun atmosphere for the family. Unlike other Mexican restaurants on the river this one far surpasses the others in customer service and taste of food. Worth the wait.
