This charming restaurant is located near the new library in downtown Nampa. There's only a few tables and room for a couple more people at the bar, plus several tables outside when the weather is good. I ordered penne with a red meat sauce and meatballs. Theresa ordered the manicotti. Both were large portions and very flavorful. We were there... More

Husband and wife team who own this restaurant are friendly and, always have a smile and a wave. The food is homemade. The rolls are an old family recipe, and, if left over, are used for breading on the chicken parm. the next day.

This was the second time that we have been to this restaurant, the first time we ordered pizza and it was not very pleasant, it was very poor customer service. Our friends wanted to go here for dinner, so we thought we would give it a second chance, the service was awesome, the food was good, and we had a... More

Not the best Italian food I have had, but not the worst. It is a good place to go if you are in a hurry or don't want to cook though. I would eat there again, but be warned, it's nothing special.

The food is decent Italian. The salad was nothing to write home about (seemed like it was out of a bag) and the sauce needs more flavor. The atmosphere could use some work/upgrade considering the price of the meal. I love mom and pop restaurants but they need to tap into their Italian roots and do a little better.

This is an undiscovered gem in downtown Nampa. The place is tiny. Sometimes it takes a while to get your food. It's all worth it. Great food, really good pizz too.

I'm am surprised they are still open. A year later almost to the day by total accident I came with a group of friends. She order the salad. It had water standing in the bottom of the plate. My other friend order pasta with sausage. Now why would you just toss on a huge link. Why not cut it up... More
