The food was delicious as always but the service VERY bad, they did not pick up the dirty dishes from the table and they were not offered if we wanted dessert. They brought the bill and I had to go pay at the cash register because the waitress did not return and there they followed the dirty dishes.

I'm not even sure if I can find the words to say how much we loved this restaurant! The only downside to the entire experience was that the food was SO good, we stuffed ourselves! Portions were large, so even though we happily waddled out, we still had enough for the next night, and the leftovers were excellent also! Two... More

Not expecting a great Italian restaurant in southern Texas, but this one surely is. A good variety on the menu, great service, plenty of wine choices and good selection of brews. Although I'm often disappointed by Italian restaurants [because I used to be a cook at one years back] this one rates near the top.

Ate here for our anniversary, enjoyed it very much. Service very friendly. Made most of their own pasta for Italian dishes. Busy place, but we were early so no wait. Ate here in April 2016 and was not impressed, gave it another chance and I was glad we did, definitely would come back.

We always buy pizza we like that you can order half and half pizzas so you get two flavors. This pizza is also excellent cold. You also get a salad which is very good.

The 35 minute wait was worth it. Dessert first, Tiramasu first with a Pinot Noir, the shared two pizzas (Mediterranean and veggies yum!) Garlic bread comes in small slices so everyone gets some. Staff was friendly and attentive. Love this place!
