This restaurant was recommended by our Innkeepers Lois and Mark at Belvino Viaggio. We met Alex and he is totally attentive to your every need while being very busy as this place is a hotspot for locals. I love the eggplant dish I was served with the right amount of everything...loved the cheese in it. My friend ordered a beautiful piece of Halibut and that plate of food was picture perfect with the colors of carrots, spinach and a very nice Halibut. They have a wonderful Scampi Ravioli as well with all handmade pasta. The Restaurant also produces a Handcrafted Italian Salumi that is sold in better Supermarkets such as Whole Foods. Alex came over from Italy in 2006 to help his Grandfather with this business. Go see Alex and have a fine meal! Love this place!

We have dined here several times and always have a great experience. The chefs do a really nice job with a smaller menu without all the predictable lasagna and spaghetti (you won't find either here unless it's a special). The staff is attentive without making you feel rushed and the wine menu sufficient for most with corkage available which is nice after an afternoon tasting if you find something you want to enjoy with a great meal.

6 of us had a lovely dinner our first night in Paso. This was a recommendation from a friend who is a Foodie like me! Every one of our meals was memorable-great food, great wine, great friends! What more can you ask for! Cozy ambiance, and great service make this a 'must dine' when you are in Paso!

Just the right size. Cozy and not over powered with noise like you are in a larger place. The food was excellent. My husband had the rack of lamb and devoured it. I had a pasta dish which I could not finish as it was too much after a good sized appetizer. Service was good and it was not overly expensive.

One of the best meals we've ever had! Special seafood pasta was exceptional and the service was friendly and attentive. We're glad we made the trip over from Cambria.
