Best restaurant in Gunnison! Fare worthy of a big city in small-town, rural Gunnison. Everything is made from scratch with excellent, city-worthy service. Rustic atmosphere, great authentic Italian food. Reservations recommended, especially on weekends.

I find some of the details of your review inconsistent to our standards. Perhaps you were tired from your 15 hour trip. I’m sure if you joined us again when you were less tired, you might feel differently. Did you speak to staff about this?...More

This was easily the best meal we had on our road trip of two months yet. Excellent service, great music, cosy atmosphere, and THE FOOD!! Don’t miss this restaurant! You won’t know what you missed, and that is just sad.
