This is a real Italian restaurant with a great wine list and menu. I wasn't expecting much but was blown by the quality of service and food.

So this was a dinner stop in this small community and was welcomed warmly by the manager. After the server took our drink and dinner order, she came back promptly with the wine and water. But then after that, all we heard were crickets - no one checked on us and after 45 minutes of seeing others who had arrived... More

7 of us went to dinner. All the food was great. Service was excellent, and they had a party of 20 in the banquet room. Very good bar.

After about a quarter century, the original owners retires and sold the place. We held our breath, as new owners of restaurants often make changes, some for better, some not. Fortunately, the new owners retained the chef, didn't change anything that was already good on the menu, and indeed made enhancements, especially to the wine list. It is as good... More

We finished our tubing adventure around 4pm, and had early dinner at the restaurant, as a family of 5. They did not have a table of 5 but managed to put two tables together. Mexican lady was very friendly, food was very good and fresh. Kids finished all their plates. Would recommend, Italian food only though.

It was late and we thought we were destined to eat our leftover snacks from the day, but when we walked in at 830, they greeted us warmly with open arms. Meal was great, service just perfect. Shout out to Jenae, our server. Sweetest girl.

To be honest, I wasn't expecting to get such great Italian food in a small "mountain" town like Kernville. However, I tried both the meat lasagna and penne pasta. Both were excellent as was the side said and garlic bread. Very fair prices and wonderful, polite service as well.

Nice sauces and the service was great. It was nice that you could split a meal for $4.95 plus they gave you an additional salad so there was no cost.

I ordered spaghetti and my wife ordered fish. By the time the meal came we were ready to leave so we went home. It was about a twenty five minute drive. We decided to eat there and started into our meals. Mine was alright but the fish had a fowl smell and a taste that was worse. I don't know... More
