LOVE this place ! LOVE the owners ! LOVE the food ! The pasta always perfect. Plus, they will make anything you want. Their pesto is to die for. Pizza's incrediable. Never been disappointed! We would eat there every night if we could. Now that's Italian.

I really want to love this place, but they prevent me from doing so.
There is no consistency with their food.
I have ordered the Chicken Piccata about 5 times, because I love Chicken Piccata and each time it was different in some way.
One time they left off the capers completely, that's a crime to an italian, to leave capers off of chicken piccata!? The next time the little lemon slices were burned, couple times there was just way too much oil on the plate, the pasta was swimming in oil. The very first time I had it there it was fabulous and it has not been the same since then.
Service is sketchy, one time they seated us and then forgot about us, 30 minutes later I got up and said something before we even got water. They tried to say that our waiter thought we were at another waiter's table. They didn't even try to make it better with a free drink or something, anything.
It's hard to tell if they have changed any without going back there, and most likely being disappointed again.

Had heard good things about this place, so I was really disppointed by the poor service, terrible longe music and limited menu. The soup was excellent, but my portion of eggplant was tiny for the price and luke cool by the time I recieved it. I can't believe they won the best of Lake Havasu food title.

I heard good things about this place, but we won't go back. It was truly mediocre. However, their pizza is very large and very inexpensive -- it just isn't very good, especially if you like a good crust. Don't get the cioppino! Duh! Havasu isn't exactly a fish place. It was just watery, tough fish and not worthy of the name.

Wonderful place with lots of atmosphere! We haven't stopped talking about our meal and hope to sneak one more visit in before we leave.
