I use to frequent this place monthly. No more. The service has gone down, the food was horrible, and they weren't that busy. Our server Elissa did manage to take our order, toss the salad at us, and bring food. She never did come and check to see if we needed anything and took an inordinate amount of time to... More

Although the interior is just ok the food is good. We have been here as a couple and been here with as many people as 10 and always left happy. The potions are good and I love their bread and salad. With so many new places to eat in vacaville I think people forget about this place because whenever we... More

Italian food its really not. Yes they have some pasta's that are pretty tasty but just because they serve pasta does not make it authentic. The place is OK for a strip mall restaurant. I really like the salad and dressing here. All the salad you want with warm flat bread. Very good especially if your hungry. As far as... More

We've never been to this chain restaurant. Being Italian, I've always been disappointed in these type of restaurants. I arrived a few minutes b4 closing, they took my "to go order". They were very nice, I didn't feel rushed as I waited for the pizza. Took it back to hotel, hubby loved it. Only complaint was it seemed a little... More

My husband and I love to go here for Soup, salad, and appetizer and glass of wine. The service is good an the food is too. The only complaint I have is the change in the stuffed shells. They were always great but they are smaller now and have lost something in the process. the stuffed mushrooms are wonderful!

We are not the biggest eaters of Italian. But we gave it a shot and were pleasantly surprised. I have trouble eating pasta and was a little worried, but there were many good choices. Staff was friendly and I enjoyed the atmosphere. Very clean.
