First let me say the Chicken Portofino under Specialties with scallops in a brandy dill sauce served with thin pasta was worth the visit. The portion was so large my friend and I split the leftovers for lunch the next day and it was just as good reheated. However, the mussels I had as an appetizer were way below par... More

We had a wonderful experience! Our waiter was excellent, and attentive. Our food was delicious and cooked perfectly! The calamari was cooked perfectly and tender. We had shrimp and crab alfredo, and lasagna. Both superb. Thanks for a great dinner!

For my wife and I a trip to Canyon Lake isn't complete without a visit to The Italian Garden. In our opinion it is clearly the best restaurant in the area. I haven't tried everything on the menu but being Italian I've gravitated toward those items. We've never been disappointed in the food and we keep coming back. You can... More

This is an area with few restaurants, so we did not expect much. But the food was very, very good. The atmosphere is nice too. We ate there twice and each time it was the same -- excellent!

Natasha is a very good server, and she is very efficient. I've had a few different dishes here, and they were all good.
