Large portions of Italian food prepared well. Fills the bill for those ravenous appetites which show up after a whole day of tackling the slopes. Service is quick and efficient. Be sure to bring an appetite!

Seven of us had dinner here, great and fast service. Had moosha pizza (vegetarian), lasagna (so large we took home half), salads, cheese bites, and a special soup, so we tried a lot of things. All were very good.

They make a great gluten-free pizza crust. I ordered a 12" half Moosha and half Traditional. Very good! Hubby ordered the $25 (worth it), 12" Godfather pizza. This is not your momma's deep dish, this thing is a monster. Huge, easily feeds 6 people. "Its...More

I rated this poor not because of the waitstaff or menu. It is because of the kitchen. I ordered chicken parmesan and it was served raw. After several bites that I could not eat, I sent it back to the kitchen. It dawned on me...More

Just happened upon it on our drive home from Sacramento! Food was SO flavorful and HUGE portions (means lots of leftovers!). They even make their own wine. Very friendly staff and nice relaxing atmosphere. Must do!

I think they do have gluten free crusts. At least they did a year or so ago when we asked for a friend who was visiting.
