This place has a fun atmosphere and plenty of options to fill your need for pasta. It's always pretty busy but generally there isn't too much of a wait to get a table. It feels like a close-knit family run restaurant. I'd definitely recommend this over any other Italian places in Provo.

This was an outstanding experience in comparison to other reviews.The food was all fresh and the service was good. The appetizer - burratta caprese was good but not wow. Very fresh but the flavors - mozzarella + sun dried tomatoes + balsamic and olive oil and arugula- did not combine for me. I had the chicken rotallini - prosciutto wrapped chicken breast in a lemon butter with asparagus and potatoes. Serious fireworks- outstanding chicken enhanced by the creamy lemon butter sauce. Too die for!The gnocchi rosa - Alfredo + marinara sauce over gnocchis finished in butter - addicting glazed finish to the dense potato gnocchi made better by the sauce - outstanding. The portabella mushrooms raviolis - really good. The spinach Alfredo - all fresh cream and perfectly cooked garlic butter shrimp that actually tasted fresh - a first here in Utah. Highly recommended.

My wife and I were downtown in Provo and debating where to eat. Others have raved about it so we tried it. We were not too hungry, so we just got a couple appetizers. The bruschetta was just meh, but so full of garlic, just like all the big name places that have everything premade in a package. The calamari really stood out. every single one had that sinew that is like a rubberband that has to be pulled out of my mouth. Some were cooked ok, but most overdone. The spot they have a great, and the decor and ambience was nice for an intimate evening out with or on a nice dressed double date, except for the small family at the table in the direct center. It was apparently the 2 wives of the owners and their small children. They were coloring at the table, which is fine, but then also getting up to run around, back and forth behind the counter. They had a baby carriage there on the end of the table. From the bored look on the kid's and mom's faces, they had been there a while, and looked to be there the rest of the night. None of this is bad in and of itself, it just really detracted from the look and feel I think they were intending.

We had an incredible meal here. We had the Oregano summer salad. What a fresh combination of greens, ricotta cheese and fruit. For our main course we had Eggplant Parmigiana, Blackened Chicken with Pasta, Italian Feast and Chicken Marsala. All were good. For dessert we had the Lemon Monticello Cake and the Nutella Creme Boulle. While they were both excellent the Lemon Cake was beyond amazing.

Our friends raved about the food here, and about the chef who formerly owned the Chef's Table. After eating here tonight for dinner, I have to say the food was mostly a severe disappointment. For appetizers, we ordered the Buratta Caprese, Bruschetta and Sweet Potato Fries. The Bruschetta was different and tasty...a chopped tomato, basil, artichoke and shredded mozzarella melange. All appetizers were decent, but it went downhill from there. I ordered the Coconut Mango Prawns Linguine because it was unusual and was frequently mentioned in other reviews. The prawns were fine, and the coconut mango sauce tasted fine, but it was way too starchy and the linguine was over cooked. My spouse's Spaghetti Meatballs was also underwhelming and the spaghetti was soft and overcooked. My friend ordered Fettuccine Alfredo with a Salmon topper. He asked for the salmon to be seared medium. He said the fettuccine was extremely average, and the salmon came overcooked and burnt in one side. Our server, Jarom, was very apologetic and quickly whisked away the overcooked salmon for replacement. However, the second salmon filet came out also overcooked and burnt on one side. At this point, our embarrassed server just comped that order. The overcooked or burnt food was a bit of a common theme for the night with the pasta, salmon, and the garlic bread that came with the pasta dishes. The wine selection is decent and reasonably priced, but they seem to run out a lot of certain choices. For me, the food tonight was barely 2 stars. The service was the only saving grace. I'm baffled by how this restaurant has won Best Italian awards...maybe we caught them in an off night.
