Our server, Cindy, was awesome. Very helpful, friendly, and full of good menu recommendations. We had lasagna, chicken Alfredo, lobster ravioli w/ prawns, and the tortellini were all fantastic. Salads were a bit salty, but tasty. Really great place for lunch or dinner.

I've never had a bad meal here. They have new specials every week. I love their clams on linguini. If you like Italian food and are in the Tulare area, I highly recommend this wonderful local place...
