Unless you are in New York, Chicago or Philadelphia, you can not find any better Italian food west of the Mississippi. Simply outstanding, including the service. We've met folks who travel from Houston >4hrs just to eat here. Make reservations well in advance, because you can't get near this place otherwise. It's that good.

This is without question the finest restraunt in the area. The food is fantastic, the building appealing, and one of the best wait staffs I've seen anywhere. There rumors at the Lake about sometype of additional location. That would be great!
