The food was wonderful. Far above the price point. I had the Shrimp Scampi and only good eat half the porition was so big. Lots of shrimp(on the small side) but really tasty sauce and the bread on the side was also good.

This is favorite place to go for pasta if you are on a gluten free diet. I have eaten many of their dishes and never was I disappointed. Good location close to the hospitals if needed.

We made a reservation as the last time we ate out in Tyler on a Friday the city seemed real busy. However, it wasn't necessary. The restaurant was half full with plenty of open tables. The staff were attentive and looked after us well. The restaurant is a bit tired. Never a good sign when the menu is coming apart... More

The restaurant was clean, comfortable and service was excellent (thank you Will). Three of us had lunch there on a Friday. The restaurant offers an $8 lunch special that includes your choice of two: cup of soup, sandwich or salad. The tomato bisque soup was outstanding. All in our party found our sandwiches to be very good. Would not hesitate... More

This place is absolutely delicious. Try the Rigatoni Oliveto.. I'm not usually a "leftovers" person simply because I think food is better when it's freshly cooked, but this dish was just as good the next day! I've gone more than once and every time has been great. Great service and even better food, you absolutely need to check this one... More

They were very friendly and we were served immediately, but for our tastes the tea was not good and I did not even finish my first glass and even though the food came very fast and was hot it was very bland and the chicken was very rubbery. We will not go back.
