Restaurant details
Reviewed 23 September 2013

It was 8:45 on a Saturday night and we tried to eat next door to our motel at Tiny's family dinner. We were promptly told it was 15 minutes before closing and were given the evil eye by the staff so we left and went across the street to Cardo's. What a difference.

Welcomed with a menu, a beer and a very friendly smile. Food was good, beer was cold, and a nice atmosphere. They appreciate your business and you won't be disappointed.

OH MY GOD! This place knows how to cook! It has been a very long time since we have had good Italian. While visiting Payson I know we will stop by here again and again! The staff were all very friendly and all went out of their way to help not only customers but each other. Our server also knew how to serve a table that had a little one sitting at it. She never placed drinks or hot food by his grabby little hands (seems logical but many servers don't do that now days). We love good food as much as we love customer service I wish I could give more stars!

This restaurant is right at the crossroads of Payson and heading up to the White Mountains for fly fishing or other outdoor adventures. The hours of operation are great because we are usually late for everything (so we know we can get good food late). The atmosphere is extremely comfortable. It may sound funny but it is one of those places where you feel like no one even knows you are there. Yet, service comes and the food and wine is always fresh, hot, cold, good.

We stopped here en route from Albuquerque to Phoenix - we were seated promptly and introduced to our very pleasant waiter. The food was very tasty, the garlic bread appetizer served 4 of us. Pasta dishes could do with a little less sauce but overall it was very tasty - real comfort food

It's a quiet late Monday night and not many tables. We were seated almost immediately. The waitress was friendly and very helpful with our orders.

Our family of 3 shared a Caesar salad which was very good. My son had a calzone and he loved it. He also had a gelato for dessert and he claimed the best he had. I had a fish & chip. It's under appetizer but I was very full afterward and it's good. My husband had Ribeye steak Italiano. The steak was perfectly rare for him. The grilled veggie were the best I ever saw. The French Onion soup accompanied his meal was so so though.
