After about a quarter century, the original owners retires and sold the place. We held our breath, as new owners of restaurants often make changes, some for better, some not. Fortunately, the new owners retained the chef, didn't change anything that was already good on the menu, and indeed made enhancements, especially to the wine list. It is as good... More

We finished our tubing adventure around 4pm, and had early dinner at the restaurant, as a family of 5. They did not have a table of 5 but managed to put two tables together. Mexican lady was very friendly, food was very good and fresh. Kids finished all their plates. Would recommend, Italian food only though.

It was late and we thought we were destined to eat our leftover snacks from the day, but when we walked in at 830, they greeted us warmly with open arms. Meal was great, service just perfect. Shout out to Jenae, our server. Sweetest girl.

To be honest, I wasn't expecting to get such great Italian food in a small "mountain" town like Kernville. However, I tried both the meat lasagna and penne pasta. Both were excellent as was the side said and garlic bread. Very fair prices and wonderful, polite service as well.

Nice sauces and the service was great. It was nice that you could split a meal for $4.95 plus they gave you an additional salad so there was no cost.

I ordered spaghetti and my wife ordered fish. By the time the meal came we were ready to leave so we went home. It was about a twenty five minute drive. We decided to eat there and started into our meals. Mine was alright but the fish had a fowl smell and a taste that was worse. I don't know... More

We came to the Sequoia National Forest to explore & have an adventure with our dogs. We stopped in Kernville for a bite to eat & found That's Italian. We asked if they could seat us outside with dogs & were gracious to give us the perfect spot & asked if we needed water for our dogs. The food was... More

Been there several times. Great location facing Kernville's park. I wish they served lunch, but the full Italian menu has great dinner choices. This is a local favorite (not just a "tourist trap"), and you can sit outside on the porch. A bit pricey, but worth the money.

Thank Bill D
