My husband had a steak and lobster mac/cheese, salad and a glass of house cabernet as well as homemade rolls. Both dishes were absolutely amazing! The staff was great and very attentive and cheerful.

My wife and I try to go here two times a month, The Pizzas are Great, and if you want something lighter the Tuscana Salad with Shrimp is outstanding. The salads are served with there homemade rolls, by themselves they are worth the trip. Service is always good, and most of the time you will get right in and seated.... More

Nice upscale restaurant in Payson, Arizona. Good food and service. Loved the lasagna and soup that came with it. Also the rolls were fresh baked. A bit pricy, but good italian food. You won't be disapointed .

It's a tad overpriced, but the quality of the food is good. I was not impressed by their lunch buffet, but the salads were fresh.

Was craving the butternut squash ravioli but it was not the lunch special so I asked and it was going to be the dinner special. Soup for the day was Butternut Squash soup so an extra plus. Food is always scrumptious! Highly recommend!

Just happen to drive past this Gem in Payson AZ. Decided to check it out. Ordered the Bruschetta, Caesar Salad and the special, Salmon on Linguine. Food was very tasty and cooked to perfection. Service staff was very attentive and friendly.

I was pleasantly surprised the first time I came here, because the mac and cheese is unique. AND to die for!

Our group of 10 came here for lunch. The staff was friendly but on the slow side. The food was average for an American Italian restaurant and can't be compared with those in larger cities. Their famous pasta with meatballs was nothing to write home about, but okay for a quick lunch. No one in our group ordered the pizza,... More

We are new in town and decided to try this place. Wow!!! The food was outstanding. We were not expecting the quality of Italian food we would be eating. Yes the portions are huge and the service was very good. If you want fast food then pass. If you want quality you will not be disappointed. We will be coming... More
