Spaghetti Western offers a new twist on some traditional Italian fare, and an Italian twist on some Tex-Mex staples too! We shared Italian nachos for the table and I was wary but they were so amazing: covered with alfredo sauce and sausage and just all...More

Light and delicious bread. Real bread, not the dense sticks you get at a chain restaurant. Menu has variety and catchy names. The food is fresh, and unlike most places, they have a reduced portion at dinner if you want it. (Except lasagna.) I love...More

Can be difficult to get in and out during rush hour due to the location. Vert rustic and quaint facilities. Decent selection of food items, with something for everyone. Can't complain about the quality and quantity. Good for a small or large group.

I grew up with a bunch of Italians from northern Italy. Their food was incredible and so when I go to Italian restaurants, I have to use what I grew up with as the standard bearer. (My perception of good Italian food were confirmed during...More

Not sure since it's mostly Italian food they try to accommodate gluten free and vegan if possible you may call either of their locations to find your answer.
