I have had lunch here several times. You can order a panini for less than $10 and it comes with a side of salad. I get the Caesar and add anchovies. Add in a glass of Chianti (or two) and ... what a deal. Recently went there for dinner. I had the veal with mushrooms and it was excellent. In... More

We order the chicken Parmesan every time. It's the best around town, in our opinion. The wait staff are phenomenal. The view is lovely, love going in the summertime.

Owned by a bouistrous Italian man and run by his lovely wife, this is the most authentic Italian food which you'll find in Gig Harbor. Located on the water, the stunning views make the entire experience perfect. The free bread and dipping sauce are sooo good. Seafood is fresh and to die for!

We're here for the weekend and it was fun to find a little Italian place that had so much charm, good food and good service. We'll definitely go again when we're in town.

My dinner companion and I enjoyed a delicious meal next to a window with a nice view of the water and the sun going down. The food prices were very reasonable for the quality and portions you get. My only criticism, and it's a minor one, is that we barely had started to enjoy our appetizer when we were served... More

Massimo's story is as exquisite as is the food, and the service is uncomparable. My girlfriend and I had a hard time remembering service that was as good as there. Ask the hostess about the story of the place too and she will regale you stories of a young woman meeting a staunch romantic Italian at 16 and her story... More

Not, fine dining but nice atmosphere and friendly folks. If you are familiar with genuine Italian cuisine you will be in for a treat. The food is spectacular and reasonable and huge servings. If you like to eat and you like real Italian then you better check this one out. You will be soooo glad you did.

Have eaten here a few times now. Really enjoyed the spaghetti and sausage dish. Friendly, quick service each time - lunch or dinner.

Coming back from an excursion to a state park and a bit of fly fishing, hungry and a little tired my wife and I spotted a restaurant as we crossed the Purdy Spit in fairly heavy traffic. This is a great restaurant. Located on the water, the building has been there a while, giving it charm and a bit of... More
