Went there recently and sat in the booths by the bar. Needless to say our experience was absolutely astonishing!!!!!!! Our servers name was michaela and she was fantastic. Personable, sweet, and always had a smile on no matter how busy she was. The food was great as always. We come here often and have a variety of servers but something about this lady made me want to write a review on here. My husband and I both had the ribeye and scampi, both in which were made sure by our waitress that was cooked correctly. And it was delicious! Our ice teas were always filled to the brim, the bread was hot and fresh, and the service was outstanding. A+++++ for everything!

Located near the Imperial Valley Mall makes for an excellent location.

I´ve been a regular for the past year and I can say that the food is very good, you´ll get classic italian food with a spicy twist on some dishes. The atmosphere of the restaurant is ok, and the service has been good to very good.

Huge selection of beverages, from wine, beer and some specialty fancy drinks. They offer daily happy hour and half price wine bottles on Wednesday´s.

Give it a try, you won´t be dissapointed.

Good Italian choice in El Centro. Ate here twice during a 2 day business trip. Had been to Famous Daves a couple of times before and wanted something different. Calimari and lasagna were good as was the sangria. Bar has quite a few draft beer selections. Bummer was that they did not have any of their bread pudding which sounded good on the menu and is one of my favorite deserts and will try it anywhere I find it since there are many variations.
