Second visit. Consistently delicious salads with seasonal twists. Watermelon salad was fresh and dressed perfectly. Husband got the burrata-always amazing. Entrees of lamb and hanger steak perfectly cooked. Loved the lemon vinaigrette on the flageolet bean accompaniment! Thoughtful wines and must try ice cream. Had the special olive oil cake. Yummy. Will be back! More

First time and I will return. I have to say the seafood was very fresh. I had the shrimp ceviche and bourbon braised salmon. The ceviche had kick to it while not being too spicy and the salmon was absolutely delicious. If you like cilantro you will love the cilantro rice. Really attentive service and a very relaxed environment. I am so glad I found this place! More

Fantastic! Not sure how we missed this place before but it’s going to be in our top ten favorite restaurants in the valley! Marco himself greets customers, explains the food and quality fresh ingredients with great pride, and offers recommendations as to what sauces best accompany each entree. Relax, enjoy a glass of vino, and savor the aromas of your cooked-to-order meal. Try the caprese bruschetta made on thin slices of house made bread. Yum! The homemade fettuccine was so light and delectable I didnt want to share. Chicken and veal were cut thin,, lightly sautéed, fork tender. Marco takes his preparation very seriously. Oh and don’t miss the house made tiramisu. You won’t want to share that either😊 More

Our daughter was graduating from GCU with her Master's degree and we all came out to participate in the day of celebration. We wanted to have a fun family dinner after the ceremony so I looked up the choices in the area and liked the reviews on Canyon 49-and liked the fact that it was not only local was connected with the school to give us that "flavor". I was able to easily move our reservation up when we found out we were done earlier than expected. Our waiter was so attentive and such a pleasure to have at our table. The food was delicious-we had appetizers, main course, and even shared 3 desserts-everything was so good! The ambiance was casual but fun. It was starting to fill up when we left but the noise wasn't ever overwhelming. We found out there was a discount because she graduated-what a sweet bonus! And our meals came to less than what we anticipated! We would highly recommend this place if you are in the area! More
