We stopped for dinner here before going to see Spamalot at the Bigfork SUmmer Playhouse (also a must). From the outside, the restaurant isn't much to look but as soon as you step inside, the smell of delicious food grabs you. We had a delicious bottle of Moscato with our pizza and salad, both the specials for the night. The pizza was one of the best pizzas that I have ever had - pesto sauce with onions, feta and lemons. Sounds strange but together soooooo amazing. Would go back again for sure!

Just got back from When in Rome. This is a relatively new restaurant in Bigfork and the Flathead valley. We sat outside and it was like being in Rome except for traffic and Frank Sinatra music. The food was outstanding. Our friends told us about the flaming cheese starter and it was great! My wife had the raviolis and I had the spicy pasta with Italian pork. Both dishes were prepared to perfection. We had just visited an Italian restaurant in Whitefish a few days ago and there was no comparison. We definitely sampled great food tonight.

We ordered salads and pizza. Everything was good but not exceptional. The pizza crust is very thin and good. There are many choices of toppings. We sat outside on the patio. It was nice but there isn't much for a view. I'd rather have been in town or on the lake. The waiter was very nice but unfortunately got some of our order wrong. We chose our own pizza toppings and some were missing... other than that everything was pretty good. We had the tiramisu for dessert and it was rich and delicious!

We make an effort to have a meal here whenever we are in the area. Perfect for dinner before a show in Bigfork (or for that matter....any other time). Although known for their inventive pizza, they have a great menu sure to please any palate. Nice wine list as well. Highly recommend.

Made a reservation for last Friday night. Glad I did because it was very busy. Host greeted us with a smile and sat us right away. We ordered a nice bottle of wine from their all Italian list, which is unusual and fantastic! We ordered the bruschetta, which was one of the best we've ever had. Our entrees were exceptional. I had the world's best pizza (and it really was!) and my wife had the sausage and shrimp ravioli. We finished dinner with their famous house-made tiramisu, which could rival any we've ever had, even on our last trip to Italy.
Five stars all around! Service was prompt, friendly and professional! Reservations definitely recommended but well worth it! I'd recommend it to anyone who is looking for REAL traditional Italian!
