I've eaten here a dozen times, trying several different dishes, particularly stuffed pastas. They were all good, but it is as some wag once said, "The problem with Italian food is that you eat it, and three days later you're hungry again." Then I ordered clam linguine, in the "white sauce," (wine, garlic, butter, seasonings), and I've not ordered anything... More

My son attended Texas State and he suggested we have lunch there. My sisters and I decided to try it out. I have been going to Ssn Marcos for the past 10 years and just found out this Itakian restaurant was in the down town area. The food was delicious!!!! The lunch specials were like a regular dinner sized portion!!!... More

Highlights include wonderful complimentary rolls and toasted garlic dipping sauce, the Greek Salad, and, my favorite, the grilled chidken primavera under the low carb/low fat menu. My husband is fond of the pizza and lasagna. Another plus is being able to bring in your own bottle of wine, a considerable cost savings. Wine glasses are provided.

We found this place on Trip Advisor. After reading good and bad reviews we decided to give it a try. First, it is BYO, they do not serve. Not a deal breaker for us but I like to have wine with dinner. Next, the service. It was friendly and attentive without being intrusive- 5 stars! Now for the food. Let... More

The lunch menu is very good. Selection not limited. The servers are friendly and attentive. We did not have a lot of time to spend before our next appointment and the server understood. Definitely the best Italian on the north side of the lake.

Been to this place a couple of times now. Service has been excellent both times and the food quite good as well as very reasonably priced. Last visit was a little slow but the place was pretty busy and the company was good so we didn't really mind. I recommend this place to anyone looking for a quaint little place... More

My husband and I love ordering from here. The portions are very generous and the rolls are phenomenal. It's BYOB and the food is traditional Italian. Quiet and cozy for date nights.
