We were starved after leaving the casino. We happened upon this little gem. It was authentic Italian dining, for sure. The price was completely reasonable. The food was great!

Excellent food and wine selection! Grilled squid, stuffed with nice Italian cheeses. Wines are in price by bottle ranging from $25 and up with selections foreign and local. $40 range has some nice local Grenache as well French and Italian reds. Tried the Camp 4 Grenache, very good. Had the best Osumbuco double lamb shank, falls off the bone, very... More

We had lunch here and it was true Italian. My husband is gluten free and they had GF pasta! I had a delicious beet salad and great bread!

Absolutely fantastic trattoria in a most enchanting setting over the mountain. Great, friendly staff and an amazing owner who is most entertaining. The food is fantastic and creative. We had a local red wine which was a perfect pairing with all dishes. Do yourself a favor and make a stop here.

Small restaurant, so it is noisy. Great homemade pasta! I had the spinach tortellini and my wife had the pressed chicken; both very good. Wonderful, light sauce with the both. House wine is produced for them and was yummy! Almond cream pear tart was a great way to finish the meal. I would make a reservation. There is a saloon... More

Enjoyed a nice family meal with our grandson. They made a special pasta dish for him which he gulped down quickly. The local red wine suggested was very nice and complimented our meals well. The only hitch to meal was the heater for the outdoor patio which made it a bit uncomfortable. Other than that, a great find for Italian... More

We went last night for the first time in a while and don't know why we don't go more often. We sit at the bar so we can enjoy the activity in the kitchen. Service is warm, friendly and professional. Local wine selection is excellent. Sole piccata was perfect. The New York steak was very good. We typically don't get... More

My boyfriend and I came here for dinner and both loved our food. I got the tortellini and he got the sea bass. The ambiance is also nice - very cozy and comfy.

Busy, warm and bustling restaurant - looks like it is very popular with the locals. We both tried the fettuccine bolognese, which is one way we evaluate Italian restaurants (right or wrong). In this case, it was disappointing. The noodles were fresh and tasty but the sauce was bland. The Caesar salad was good, but the lettuce had been washed... More
