A definite Italian atmosphere at this restaurant barely off the highway at Ruby Lake Resort. Food is high quality and servers are friendly and considerate. As last patrons there at night we never felt rushed and server (so sorry I forgot her name) took time...More

We had lunch so the menu might differ at dinner. Although the pasta was good, the Buffalo Burger was excellent. They also had a nice selection of Italian wines. There aren't many decent restaurants in the area so this is a nice treat, reasonable prices,...More

We found this roadside restaurant to be a real gem. There is virtually no noise from the nearby highway. The covered patio is casual, rustic and very inviting. The food was good, and especially the pastas. Don't be in a rush, as the service is...More

During nice weather you must sit on the (covered) patio. Nice view and cool breezes. Started off with a drink - red sangria. Full of fruit and very good. Next shared a caprese salad. It was OK but the tomatoes were pretty bland. I thought...More

We came upon this place by chance, and were really impressed with the decor - wood panelling, and all kinds of artisanal wood work pieces. There are big wooden platters with handles (covet, covet) used in summer to display produce from their gardens. The food...More

I did not notice risotto on the menu, but it seems logical to offer it. The restaurant is friendly and works hard to please guests. You might suggest a risotto dish, and they will probably step up to the plate. Likely if you... More
