Went with 3 other couples for Valentine dinner. Was looking forward to their seafood linguine, but only a special menu was available for the special night. Did try the clam linguine with marinara sauce. The borchetta was first served and it was good. Linguine was good, with lots of clams. Sauce could have used some more garlic for my taste,... More

Four of us ate here on my birthday, December 24. Because of the holiday, they had a limited menu, but we all found something to eat. The food was good, and so was the service. We interacted with the table behind us, which had a new born December baby whose mother was also born in December.

I went there with a fairly large group in private room. The service was very slow. They just didn't seem to know how to handle a group. The whole menu was available and that added to the problem. And i wasn't impressed with the food at all.

They are always very attentive and you can not go wrong with anything you order. You can go there for a special night or just if you want great dining.

We like to support local independent restaurants that are family-owned. This is a friendly place with good (not spectacular) food. On Friday and Saturday nights there is music. The restaurant was recently remodeled, and it looks nice, with tablecloths, soft lighting, etc. Very enjoyable!

We have reviewed this restaurant some time ago. We went again yesterday, and it still a wonderful little family owned restaurant in a strip mall, across from Sun City West. Genaro (Jerry) was our waiter-AGAIN, and he does such a wonderful job. To start the service with Bruschetta to snack on while looking at the menu. They have a wide... More

Walking in my first impression was that the place was a bit dark and had a slight but peculiar odor.... perhaps an old carpet. But the service was top notch, the prices reasonable, and the food was very good. A good number of entree choices and beverages. I'd go there again.

I have been going to this restaurant for so many years and never disappointed. The atmosphere is great, wonderful food and service. Generally you can get a coupon for a discount on the meal in the local papers. I hope they continue to operate the same way for many years. This place is a real gem in the desert area... More
