Please note this Resturant closed its doors 6 months ago. Too bad as it was a fantastic Resturant owned and operated by Italians Milan. Fortunately Poway has several other good restaurants.

A great Poway staple establishment for authentic Mexican food with a homestyle atmosphere and feel. You can not go wrong with anything on the menu and the tortillas, tamales, and menudo are homemade. Love this place, you will not be disappointed.

Not a pizza place, Best authentic Italian Food you can find. The meat balls are the best. The lamb is even better. It's not cheap, but it's worth it. Save room for desert. I don't eat desert often. I am a baker and hard to...More
