This is a quaint restaurant with a small town flare. The food was very good, especially the garlic toast. We would go there again.

Had our anniversary dinner there. Food was great. We had chicken piccata and a spicy shrimp/pasta dish. Meal came with garlic bread, salad, and had some spumone. Waitress was good and attentive, background music very soothing.

We were a group of three. I had the Chicken Marsala, another had the Cantalone and another had the homemade sausage and spinach on penne. All were excellent. We finished with the chocolate mousse... that will cure all your ills. Just that.

We had a wonderful dinner here recently. The waitress was very kind and efficient. The food was excellent as was the wine selection...Very quaint atmosphere. They have a nice back room that would be excellent for larger groups. Highly recommend!

The new owners have Romero's recipes and the same high quality of dining experience. If you are visiting Kernville, try That's Italian in Kernville's little square. It's where the locals go.
