Phenomenal Italian cuisine especially considering it was prepared by a Chinese staff. Our visitors from New Jersey ( capital of Italian cooking in the USA) were shocked to see such a place in the desert! We'll miss it.

After 11 years of gracious dining, they closed their doors and now we have to go to Brawley. Donna and Tom were always so welcoming and their food was so consistently good. They also knew what to do with chiles so I loved to order their hot seafood antipasto with five Thai chiles. The aftertaste stayed with me for days.
Thanks for the good memories.

Prior to this meal, two of us met with the owners to see if they could accommodate 25 men for dinner. We initially tried to select two or three options to have as a buffet style meal, however, the pricing would have exceeded simply letting the men order from the menu.
With this in mind we simply asked if they would have us seated separately from the rest of the customers, to which they agreed.
All went as planned...some food took longer than expected due to the fact the restaurant was quite crowded, however, we had wine that filled the wait times.
Food was good, portions too and the servers were very pleasant!
Good choice on our part!!!
