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

We stopped in for lunch on our way to Abq. They have a Firewood oven. We were very pleasantly surprised. The pizza crust was crisp and tasted great , you can tell they use the best flour. The mozzarella was fresh. Tomatoes on pizza not the regular pizza sauce, they use the crushed tomato sauce. Prosciutto very good quality too.... More

The food here is made in-house. It's very good. It's pricey though. According to husband, pizza was best wood-fired pizza he's had.

This was the first meal in a new home. We missed out traveling through here on Mondays when they are closed. But lots of people mentioned them. The menu is not large. There are good options on it. We went safe and got lasagna. This is a great choice. They make it by the large tray and run it under... More
