Although the long list of well described items on the menu sounded delicious, my first clue that this restaurant was not authentic should have been the sounds coming from the kitchen where our table was situated close to. Everyone was speaking Mexican!!!! The gnocchi was tough and very chewy, and the sauce was so heavily laden with garlic that was all you could taste! We ask for the pesto sauce to add to it, and you could not even taste a hint of basil, only the strong taste of garlic! The bread was NOT the nice European type you would expect - more like a very cheap imitation with no flavor. Even the herbs they put on top were overwhelmed with garlic! The marinara sauce was also overwhelmed with the taste of garlic, so much so that you could not taste the tomato ! We didn't even want to take our leftovers home - and believe me - there were ALOT of leftovers!!

We joined some friends at this establishment, and I was not expecting anything more than the typical sour tomato red sauce. I was pleasantly surprised! The lasagna was served bubbling and well spiced, with a generous layer of melted cheese on the top. The red sauce was sweet, not sour, and the balsamic vinegar dressing was just right.

We had 2-for-1 coupons for the dinners, which made it even more enjoyable.

Someone wrote a review titled, "Good Food, a little pricey". I counter that with ordinary/sub-par food and way too expensive for what you get. The atmosphere is nice, if a little overdone fussy. But this restaurant is not interesting and innovative at all. Sadly, there are no good Italian restaurants in Loma Linda or Redlands, this is the Inland Empire. I think there's room for someone to open one, please! You might as well head over to Spaghetti Factory, it's the same kind of food (faux Italian) and it costs less.
Our family will not go back to this restaurant.

Food is good but the prices are high. I had eggplant Parmesan which was excellent. My daughters loved the pasta dishes. The place is a little small but the location is nice, right off the 10 fwy.

We attempt to go to this restaurant at least once a month. Does not seem to be busy on
Sunday. Good menu choices, prices are good and food taste is great. U may want to try their daily specials which seem to be very good. Service is great and food is present well, with large portions. Good place for your family of all ages, quiet and reserved.
