Extensive Italian menu, with several meat free options, carefully prepared by Chinese chef! Very attractive and recently redone dining room and bar area. Value for money. Decent wine list.

We've eaten there on two trips and liked it both times. It has a surprisingly extensive menu. It is adjacent to the runway of the airport, which is a couple of miles out of town. One of the better places to eat in Borrego Springs.

You would never guess by just driving by how good the food is here. We came in with a large group of people (approx 40) for a buffet lunch. Everything I had was very tasty....which was Chicken Marsala, julienne garlic veggies, chicken fettuccine, house salad with creamy Italian dressing and tiramisu for dessert. I was very satisfied with the portions, flavors and service.

We have been to their establishment in Brawley many times and the owner is so friendly. She makes you feel welcome. This one is friendly as well. The food was good with a nice view.
Wish it was open in the summer time!

This restaurant is located at the Borrego Springs Airport and, given its exterior, is surprisingly nice inside. The bar is lovely and the staff was very nice. The food we had, unfortunately, was not all the great. The garlic bread was adequate, as was the appetizer salad, but the pasta was not good. We each had zit with a marinara sauce (mine also had ricotta); the ziti was so overcooked that it fell apart when you tried to pick it up with your fork. Mushy pasta, yuck. The sauce was just o.k. and the parmesan cheese was not fresh, i.e., the powdered stuff. I suspect (from talking with others who had eaten there) that other items on the menu were much better and we just picked the wrong thing to eat.
