This place serves huge portions of food. The place is nicely decorated and makes you feel in Italy, staff friendly, little on the expensive side and plenty of parking spaces outside.

We had our grandsons graduation party last night. We knew about the family style serving but everything ordered was the best and sharing the various choices made this evening an awesome night. The wait staff and management staff were so busy with other parties but took time for all the details to make this a memorable party. A place you should take your family.

Warning! This place serves "family style". That means the plates serve several people. I like this place, but the problem is that when someone in your group is picky, you end up eating something you would not have ordered because you only need a couple of plates to feed a group! The good part is the food is really good! We had stuffed shells and ordered the small plate and still filled two people. The service was just okay. Our guy was a little slow on the drink refills and getting us our ticket. Pictures of famous and random people cover the walls.They take you through the kitchen on the way in. You can even eat in the kitchen as they have a booth in there. I bet the service is better! Overall this is a place I would go back to.

3/2/2014 first visit for my mom's birthday. The location is off the I-45N freeway in the Woodlands, TX but when we looked it up it shows Shenandoah,TX but it's all still the Woodlands to me. There is a Sam's, bath and body works, Sally's and other stores in the same parking lot.

Upon arrival the ENTIRE staff was VERY pleasant and even wished my mom a Happy Birthday as well as gave us a tour of the kitchen that was VERY clean and REALLY made us feel secure and excited about the meal.

Our server Sherwin was very pleasant and explained the meal, menu and portion sizes. It is family style servings but we all ordered something different because we DO eat leftovers. The meatballs are HUGE that comes with the spaghetti, the baked ziti, chicken and shrimp fettuccini was also in very satisfying portions as well as the taste of freshness in every bite.

The staff even came over and sang a Happy Birthday to my mom and REALLY made her day special and all of us stated we will eat here again as well as make a recommendation.
We all were able to eat two(2) more times from the left overs.

This is the second year we have celebrated our Thanksgiving here. We don't come till after 6 so the crowds have gone. The service is wonderful and we love the food.
