Always an enjoyable meal and atmosphere whether as a couple, friends night out, or as a business meeting. The patio is great in summer with fans or winter with heaters and fireplace. Don't fill up on the yummy bread, leave room for a delicious main course. The princess cake for dessert is my usual.

Food is pretty good but like most restaurants in the desert, it's pricey. Usually crowded so plan ahead. Booth cushions are too soft, get a table

This place never disappoints-from the moment you walk in to the moment the goodness hits your tastebuds. Hint: this place is extremely busy so go early.

Great food and service. Bartender is so friendly. Try Papa's special, delicious. Parking sparse. Going later is better.

OMG food is amazing, by far the best Italian food in the HD. We had a party of 27 and the service was great! Portions are big so you can split the entrée.

Personally, I think that Italian food in general, is too pricey, seems like pasta is so cheap, that it should not cost much. Then I pause to think, that in an Italian restaurant, the facility costs the same, the staff costs the same, continue that line of thinking and maybe the operating costs are not that much different from a...
