Just after we were seated, two waiters came by and gave us menus. We said we wanted to order some wine, and chose 2 glasses. Both waiters asked "don't you want a bottle?" No. We perused the menu, then one of the waiters came to...take our order...we weren't ready. He was back within 5 minutes, still not ready. On his next try about 5 minutes later, we ordered. Starting at this point we had about 5 different employees come to our table and interrupted our evening to ask if everything was OK. This was way too much! When we were finished eating we asked for the bill. There was an order of spaghetti on the bill which we did not order, so I called the waiter over.....he appeared to know what I wanted when I held up the bill. He took it away and adjusted it. We don't plan to return.More

As we approached the restaurant, we were greeted by Miguel. Nice soft music, warm inviting atmosphere. Nash, our waiter, treated us like royalty. We chose a Mexican wine that I would rate a 92 pointer....wonderful and reasonably priced. We had met someone earlier in the...day that steered us here and recommended the stakes. After chatting with Nash we all ordered a different stake on the menu. The meals all came with a side salad, my Ceasar was fantastic. The filet and ribeye were the show, yummie. However, I must mention the pasta dish created at the table, in an 20" bowl of cheese. Parmesian Reggiano, literally in the middle of the "brick of cheese". Topped with a hint of truffle oil....WOW! We finished the experience with an order of Churros served with a dipping sauce, oh my! We wiil be back:-) ..More

In full disclosure I’m a harsh critic of Italian restaurants because I lived in northern Italy for 15 years. Therefore I judge restaurants by their authenticity to the way Italians prepare food in Italy. Here it really is very far off from a genuine Italian...restaurant. It is much more like an Italo American restaurant. Having said that it was very tasty and the food was good but not outstanding in the Way a true Italian would prepare a meal. Still let me say that the wine list was very solid with reasonable prices. Their homemade bread was delicious. The quality of my chicken was very high even if it wasn’t prepared the way an Italian would do it. I thought the service was excellent and kind. It’s attractive inside but I wouldn’t say that it is filled with character. Still if you don’t mind an Italo American style meal then you’ll have a great time here. my American friends would love it but my Italian friends would walk away after the first bite.More

Ambience reminded us of Olive Garden. The stuffed mushrooms were excellent .The fettucine alfredo was on the heavy side. The Tiramisu was good. Wines are average in general. We would likely not return again as there are better Italian restaurants in PV
