I had noticed this restaurant on our eastbound trip through town because of the funny name. We stopped for dinner on our return trip going west and are glad to have found it.
The server staff made sure I couldn't empty my glass of ice tea. They were always there when we wanted them.
The menu has a large selection of tasty items to chose from. I chose the five cheese baked macaroni. It was worth the drive to get here just to experience dinner here!
The service was excellent, the food delicious and our experience here was delightful. We were disappointed to find this restaurant is usually closed on Sunday because we wanted to eat here again.

Very popular, local place. The food was okay, but not great. Servers were friendly and the prices were average.

This restaurant is beautiful and quaint, and even though the sign on the door says 'For Sale', it's still open! I've only eaten the pasta, and it is great! The pasta rooms have wonderful views of the desert and plateau and sunset. The pasta itself is delicious. I recommend the Japanese dish. It's really spicy if you don't request it mild, so I suggest requesting it mild.
The atmosphere is cool too! The pasta room we ate at had vines covering the ceiling, and the wallpaper made to look like a stacked-slate wall was really realistic!
The staff was also nice and funny, and they made you laugh.
The regular sizes of pasta are huge, so that means the 'Lotsa' sizes are GIANT! Also, get the single trip to the salad bar. It's pretty big, and the single trip is of better value.
For our three-person family, we all got different mints. A cinnamon mint for my husband, a chocolate mint for my daughter, and a regular mint for me. :) You should go here, it's worth it.
