That's Italian is the real deal from food to décor and atmosphere. It's a great restaurant hidden in this little town. we had a group of 16 for dinner and the set us a special table, very nice and we had a great waiter, Christian....As advertised, the lasagna, and clams in white sauce with linguine were tops. The Caesar salad is also well worth the extra $3, try it. The free garlic bread set on your table upon arrival is a nice touch. A definite return dining spot when in the area!More

We had pretty tasty Italian food here. My wife had ravioli and I had linguini with oysters. Both were top notch. We will come here again

What a gem in the mountains. I was wondering about fine dining while camping and fishing. The locals gave us this lead, thanks to all. You feel Italian when you walk in the door, they are willing to work with your wants and needs. Staff...is wonderful! Caesar salad is the real deal. Linguine and clams to die for.More

We had dinner at this Italian restaurant and enjoyed the food. It was good. The tomato soup was delicious. The ziti was good but could have used a little more sausage since it was ziti with sausage. The chicken marsala was just okay. The lasagna...was just okay. Would I go there again, yes. I am a pasta junky. Would I say it was delicous and wow, hhhh. No, it was good but not great.More

I didn't expect the quality of Italian food I find in San Francisco, and I wasn't disappointed. Yet, my clams and linguini was more than acceptable. Unfortunately the older drunk couple sitting a few tables away from me weren't. I did feel bad for the...waitress since the couple's bickering could be heard throughout the small room. Oh well, maybe when I become that addled I'll be just as embarrassing. Acceptable food at a price that was a bit too high.More

Had dinner here which was very obligingly 1 dinner split across two plates. Because we did not want 2 salads we were not charged extra. All washed down with a carafe of the house red made for a good value meal.

Our first time in Kernville, picked this place from the reviews and we were glad we ate here. Linguine with clams in white sauce was very good, fresh salad and a reasonable wine selection. Not fancy, just good food in a quiet setting for a...reasonable price. Our waitress was helpful and friendly which goes a long way towards making for a fun eveningMore

I travel to Kernvile quite often and this time I tried "That's Italian" restaurant. I ordered the Chicken Parmagiana and it was excellent. It came with a Salad and garlic bread and I was stuffed. The restaurant is nice and clean, with very friendly staff....I sat outside on their patio and enjoyed the view of the small town. Great food... great experience.More

We were not expecting much from this little town but we were very surprised! I was able to get a delicious gluten-free pasta dish and had NO reaction. The service was good and the dinner was amazing. We both highly recommend stopping here if you...want a "nicer" dinner.More
