Celebrated a family member's birthday at this charming Italian restaurant located within a small shopping center in Reno. The restaurant offers an extensive selection from appetizers, salads, soup, pasta, beef, fish, pork, veal, chicken, risotti and cannelloni/crespelle/lasagne. Average cost per entree is about $11 - 12 with appetizers ranging from $5 - $9 and meat dishes from $13 - $20.
Our family ordered baked manicotti (homemade filled crepes with a delicious sauce that was covered with mozzarella), chicken piccata di pollo (tender chicken with capers and a lemon sauce with a small side of pasta and zucchini), and tagliatelle porcini pomodoro (delicious homemade wide pasta with porcini mushrooms and a very good tomato sauce). Appetizers included the Caprese salad with fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and basil (excellent selection), carciofi alla Romana (marinated artichokes over salad greens in a lovely presentation that was also delicious), and Carpaccio di Polipo (thinly sliced TENDER octopus with oil, lemon and fresh Italian spices). We've had octopus on many occasions, but never presented with thin vertical slices, which is now a new favorite way to prepare it.
For a neighborhood restaurant, this is a great selection. We were only visting Reno, but made our selection based on previous TripAdvisor reviews. Once again, we relied upon our fellow travelers' suggestions and were pleased! Thank you, TripAdvisor.
