This is a beautiful, cozy, charming little Italian restaurant perched on a hill overlooking the Guadalupe River. The service was great, and my filet w/ cabernet sauce was delicious! The filet was cooked exactly as I had requested (medium rare).

We have been looking forward to eating at this restaurant for a while now. We finally stopped. But we found it did not live up to our expectations.First we couldnt decide who our waiter was.Then we ordered an appitizer of crap cakes, and we get planko cakes.We could hardly find any crap at all.And agian who is our waiter?We finally get our meal after waiting about 45 min.It was good till we found a hair in our plate.Soo the waiter that we finally figured out was our waiter takes it away. We sit patiently waiting for another plate.Another 45 min goes by he finally brings our ticket we asked for our plate that we thought was being prepared aaall this time. "Oooh i didnt realize you still wanted it" he replied. Very dissapointing! We will never go there again. Unles there is new management,new staff.cuz the view is amazing and atmosphere is nice

I'm so sorry that you had a bad experience here yesterday. We appreciate all feedback, good or bad, and that will help us work on our mistakes. We have a good crab cake recipe, and just had a staff meeting about actually following the recipes and not rushing through them.
Please contact me at valdestomas@hotmail.com or (210) 556-9299. I think you deserve your next lunch or dinner on the house, and I believe you will change your mind about us if you give us a second chance. Hope to hear back from you!
Tomas Valdes, owner.

Our first trip back since they changed management in November, 2012 shows great promise. Chef Tomas Valdez is serving a beautifully presented menu with something for everybody. The crab cakes were light and not highly spiced as so many are. My wife had the salmon which she praised and I had the veal piccata with angel hair pasta which was generous and as tasty as I've had anywhere. The restaurant is situated above the Guadalupe River with beautiful views from every table. Don't be put off by the unimposing exterior. We'll be returning soon.

The Best Restaurant in town with the best views of the river and it's the only restaurant over the
river. Great place to have a romantic dinner or meet with friends. Don't forget to ask for the Creame brulee for dessert.

Great Food, service and atmosphere. Nice to have a glass of wine enjoying the sunset at the Guadalupe river.

Definitely try the Gnocchi.
