It's all home made and delicious. Run by a family some of the best service. If you are lucky there will be one of their 'special' desserts on the menu. Call ahead to make sure they are open when you want to go and definitely make a reservation. A must eat for anyone visiting the Rio Grande Valley.

I'm kicking myself in the butt for not discovering this hidden little gem of a restaurant sooner! Forget about those "chain" restaurants up on the expressway and check out this delicious little Mom and Pop joint down on Business 83, I promise you won't be disappointed! The atmosphere is quaint and quiet with the perfect blend of old time favorite... More

First time t this restaurant. Went with a a group of eight. Made a reservation and glad we did as it was very busy. The service was great and the food was excellent also. Food came out quickly after ordering, one little issue the food could have been a little hotter. Other than that we will defiantly be going back.

I have been loving this restaurant for YEARS. It's pretty much the only Italian restaurant we leave home for (it seems like you can make a lot of Italian restaurant-type food at home for half the price with just as good of an outcome). The lasagna, manicotti, and the chicken piccata are some of our favorites. The "Tour of Italy"... More

Great food, low prices, excellent wait staff. Consistent quality. Family owned. I recommend the sampler plate, a little of everything.

5 of us dined here on Saturday arriving at 5pm without a reservation but were promptly seated. Everyone had water to drink but I added a glass of Chianti, the house red. Gluten-free options are very limited since they didn't have GF pasta but my wife was able to get the Chicken Marsala with a side of veggies in place... More

Always excellent! I took a new friend this authentic Italian restaurant. She had the veal marsala and I had the chicken marsala. both were excellent as was the Caesar salad and garlic bread. The mother of this Italian family makes all the desserts and she outdid herself with the chocolate strawberry cheesecake.

The family that owns and runs this place are so nice.They are always pleasant and will accommodate any request. I love their marinara sauce, their meat sauce, the meat-filled ravioli and the lasagna. You can't go wrong with anything you order. The plates are so generous. My husband and I split the dish that had the allows a selection of... More

Paul the owner was esp. helpful and accommodating. He explained all our questions about the food we ordered and brought out the wine quickly. Reasonably priced and very delicious. Our side Caesar salads were made with homemade dressing to die for. Yummy garlic bread too. Our large pizza was so flavourful and between the 2 of us there was one... More
