“Excellent service and food!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

Recently dined here on recommendation of our hotel and it did not disappoint. The food was wonderful and our server was very helpful without being pushy. We had one minor problem with the dessert taking longer to come than it should but the apology of the manageress compensated for the slight annoyance. If we're ever in Paso again we'd eat here every night!!!

“Italian Heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2014 via mobile

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!

“Great every time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2014

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.

“Deliciosa!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2014

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!
