Nothing but good things and great food, especially the Lamb. Decent service. Quail,Venison, and Elk are very good when offered.

This was ok. For the price I expected better service and a larger portion. We spent the majority of our time waiting for the server to assist us. At that point the restaurant was not busy yet

It is a very good Italian restaurant and we have enjoyed it often. However, given that one of us is diabetic, it really limits the food selection as much of it is pasta which is too high in carbs for a diabetic.
