Good value, so far our food has been good. Great value on wine corkage: $8. Rooms are not intimate, lighting too bright.

My wife Anne and I have been to That's Italian in Kernville a few times now and always have had a great dining experience. The food, wine, service, and atmosphere are always top drawer and the prices are very fair. What a great restaurant, we love it.

Very good meal accompanied by Pink Lemonade Martinis. A short walk from our lodgings (the Kern River Inn) we had a friendly relaxing meal sitting on the porch watching the quiet of the Kernville evening.

Italian restaurant in Kernville! Was totally unexprected but pleasantly surprised. The food was good and service was great. The outdoor seating is very nice and almost european like. I think that rating a restaurant based on one visit can be unfair sometimes, but I did not feel that the food was exceptional by any means. The salad that came with... More

We made reservations for Friday night. They had a quaint quiet table waiting for us. We ordered the "Ribeye Special" and 'Penne de Portofino". Both were delicious. They served mixed drinks--the margarita was great!

A fine aroma of garlic and other spices filled the restaurant. We were warmly greeted by the waitress and were requested to choose where we wanted to sit. The tables were clean and the flatware was shiny (no water spots, some restaurants still don’t get it). Our drinks, salads and excellent garlic toast were promptly served. Our meal was expertly...

Great Italian food where you least expect it. Most perfect salads I have had in a long time. Prices moderate.

Made reservations and arrived right on time. Our first indication this was going to go bad was as soon as we sat down at the table it was dirty with crumbs. One of the placemats were moved to brush under it and we found an unappetizing stain from a previous diner. It looked like they just reset the table rather... More
