We went there last night and were given a table in the small room upstairs. Not much atmosphere and cramped. Waiters had to keep squeezing past my husband's chair. Food average and nothing special. Service slow. We ordered a bottle of Italian Sauvignon Blanc for $40 which was not pleasant. When we checked the bottle it was evident it was... More

horrible experience. food was served cold. the owner is extremely rude. Tuned off the heater to force us to move from our table. Definitely a place not to be visited. This is the first time in my life that I make such an evaluation, but I do it completely convinced that this place is not worth visiting.

I ordered the short rib, and the outside layer was perfectly cooked. I was struggling to cut the meat closer to the bone, which shouldn't happen with short rib. Once I managed to cut off a piece, I took a bite and the meat was FROZEN SOLID. Straight out of the freezer. I told the waiter that my plate was... More

3 of us had a "solid" meal here. But being from the NYC area, we are used to great Italian food 24/7, so we weren't overly impressed. 2 of us had the goat cheese & marinara crostini for an appetizer (very good/large portions) and 1 of us had a house salad (standand). For entrees we had the truffle gnocchi (good),... More

I hosted 4 couples for dinner. The food was ok. The hostess bothered by something we weren't sure of and was somewhat rude. The waitress was always hurried. She submitted our bill and it had 10 entrees on for 8 people. I told her about the mistake and there was never an apology and she was upset that I brought... More

This was my fourth time visiting this restaurant and sadly it will be my last. I made the reservation 30 days in advance. When we arrived they sat us at a folding card table in the bar which was jammed with people. They had clearly oversold the restaurant!! As a result of having too many people the service was slow....

I am so sorry, I hate to write reviews unless they are good ones but I just had to inform people of my experience here. The staff being not so nice isn't even the worst part. My boyfriend's meal (The Veal) was completely inedible. It was hard as a rock he took a few bites and couldn't continue. My pot... More

Have not been to Vail for several years but returned to find a transformation of the village and other areas. Looked for this old standby as we have many fond memories of bringing our son here to sit at the pizza counter when he was younger. It was just as we remembered. The pizza is awesome and it is entertaining... More
