It's sometimes hard to find a fine dining restaurant in a small town (OK, Madera is growing), but this is certainly the best in town, and dare I say, even up against the big boys in Fresno. The variety of cuisine reminds me of San Francisco, so it's hard to say it's "Italian" or it's "California".
I'm just happy that the long tradition here is being carried on. You must try it.

I ate here my last day in Madera and was very impressed. We had eaten a late lunch so I just had a pasta, but was it was excellent and every else that I saw being served looked great. And we had an excellent local wine. If I am every in Madera again I will be back.

This is a top notch restaurant that could have stood against the best in San Francisco or Napa! The food, the service were unbelievably good! We had Mo as our server. She was funny, entertaining, professional. My halibut was the best I have had, on par with Alaska. All food tasted fresh, and well seasoned. The manager rotated through the restaurant overseeing all. He was attentive to detail.

Very nice place. Must visit if you are in the area. the decor is nice giving the place a very warm and cosy feeling. the food is good. the service is nice. the waiters were hurrying a tad but then nothing too much. the wine selectin was good. i had the crab cakes and the bacon wrapped pork tenderloin. both were very nicely done and quite tasty. my friend had the lasagne and he too was very happy.

it is located right beside the 99 and is thus very easy to reach.

overall a very nice place for a good hearty meal in a nice set up. would love to go back.
