Enjoyed fast service, great food, and decent prices. I would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Billings. I had the manicotti which was amazing! Pretty loud atmosphere, but not obnoxious.

Very friendly staff, nice atmosphere, comfortable open and fun. Waiter (Ben) was great, friendly and efficient, gave great suggestion on wine. Cute service staff and friendly kitchen. Food was adequate, plenty of options. I had a Penne dish, plenty of volume!

This is an always-busy, friendly place to go in downtown Billings. It has a nice selection of appetizers, salads, soup, pasta and meats. it is very popular with families, the food is good, staff is friendly, and we enjoy the place a lot. Portions are very generous, I think you could buy two and few appetizers to feed four people.... More
