Food is very good and the setting is lovely. Forget about the "gas station" remark. Their tiramisu is wonderful.

So disappointed. This used to be my favorite restaurant. I don't know if it changed hands, chefs or both. The wine I requested was out. The 2 menu items I always order are no longer on the menu. The dessert I get every time was out! It was not even 8 pm on a holiday. The menu item I tried... More

I have eaten Italian food all over the US. The best ever was in NYC. I was amazed that a restaurant located in the back of a gas station in Pocatello ID would rank as one of the best Italian restaurants anywhere. The food was cooked perfectly and most importantly, it was all done right. I highly recommend this place... More

Fortunately, The chain up the street closed. I wish I had dined here before, it would have been my go-to in the area. The prices are very reasonable and the portions are very generous. Tony was very friendly but not overly chatty. It was pretty busy for the day after Christmas. The food was very tasty. I had the Mediterranean... More

Don't let the fact that you have to enter through a filling station stop you - you won't be disappointed. They always server consistently delicious Italian food, and we love the views of the statues in the courtyard.

This restaurant was close to the Hampton Inn. It was odd that it was attached to a convenience store but the setting was comfortable but nothing special. My prime rib salad was delicious!

We had dinner here while visiting Pocatello. The food was excellent, service was excellent and the ambiance was very good. It is well worth the visit.

Wasn't happy this was where my girlfriends wanted to meet for lunch. Been here before & did not care for it. Wanted to be with the girls so went anyway. It's really quite lovely inside but just do not like the food. I have to admit I am a little difficult because I use to own a restaurant & I... More

I wanted to eat somewhere near my hotel and was told there was a national chain restaurant or this restaurant. I try to eat at local establishments when traveling so selected this one. I don't normally eat Italian because it is high in carbs, but I was looking forward to a glass of chianti with some fettuccini alfredo with shrimp.... More

Upscale decor and landscaping make you forget we are part of a Shell station. We can seat up to 99. Accommodate up to four groups at a time in private. We are extremely quite and love it when people linger over their meal. Our wine cellar offers a selection of 300 different wines from the world over.
