Very disappointing. Reservation on saturday night wasnt honored and we had to wait for 1 hr. Food wasnt up to their reputation. wine was good and reasonable priced. Service was good. Probably will not go back. Too many other italian restaurants to choose from.

Located in the middle of nowhere from a tourism perspective, hide a beatiful restaurant so call popi's. The experience is complete, no wonder the restaurant is full and others comments on the web are positive. From welcome to treating, servicing is excellent. The food for...More
