Incredible that our little community has 1 of the best Italian restaurants in the San Antonio area. The food is absolutely incredible & you can't beat the friendly service. All at a very reasonable price.

The inside and outside has a very fancy feel to it. The outside has a stone trail that you can walk around with nice benches. I thought it would be a nice place to have a small baby shower (in the spring or fall) outside on the patio. It is really beautiful. The service was great. The food was OK but not amazing. We had a party of 7 and spent about $150 for lunch with wine.

Our group of 4 double dated for dinner. Everything we ordered was outstanding. I fell in love with their chicken lasagna. Although we were full, we could not turn down the Key Lime Cheesecake. Oh My Gosh it was good! Their service was outstanding. Even the manager stopped by to check on us. Well worth the huge tip. We are already making plans to return.

Food is excellent with good prices. Knot rolls are to die for. Service is good and not noisy. Good atmosphere.

We went mid-week at 4pm without a reservation and waited about an hour for a table. Friends of ours had a reservation and still ended up waiting 45 minutes. Once you’re seated the experience improves! The server was helpful and friendly, and the food was great.

They do to-go orders, and we tried to use this service as well and kept getting transferred to an answering machine. That wasn’t helpful at all, and we didn’t place the order.

Kim, I'm glad your server was friendly and you enjoyed our recipes. We appreciate your patience for the table and reservations often times get backed up due to several factors that may extend party times. Apologies about the to-go service but we only have two lines and they are often in use - I'll look deeper into this for you. I hope you'll make a reservation to come back and see us soon.

Thanks for the review,
Gennaro, Owner
