    Best Italian in Colorado Springs by far. I arrived about 20 minutes before my reservation and was seated immediately. The service was as close to perfect as I could have hoped for. There was no long wait between courses and no overlap. Drinks were never empty. The restaurant was full but it seemed that we were the only people our server was taking care of.

    We made a reservation a couple days in advance and were disappointed right off the bat when we were seated at what I can only imagine is the worst table in the restaurant. We were squeezed right by the hostess stand so the whole time I had people brushing up against me as they were on their way in or out. The service was also slow and even with a reservation at 7pm and getting sat at 6:58 we didn’t get to put in our drink order until 7:10. The food was okay. I got the lasagna and only had cheese on my first three bites. It looked like there were other people complaining about various things so I’m hoping it was just an off night for them.

    We came here on advise of friends. We were somewhat disappointed. My Chicken Marco was dried out and overcooked. The meatballs the kids got were not very good. The bread, salads and pasta were very good! I don't know that it rates a return trip. It was crowded and noisy!

    I was actually pretty disappointed. I got the shrimp scampi and it had zero flavor. The service was decent, not great. The noise level was very high so I felt like I had to yell across the table.

    My lasagna was good. My husband got spaghetti and meatballs and it was not good. The meatballs tasted funny. I don’t know if it was a spice that was used that didn’t fit right in a meatball or if there was something wrong with them (like they were spoiled or something?). Bread was good, salad and wine were good. Not sure why a Caesar’s salad upcharged over a house salad. They were the same size (house salad maybe a little bigger and more ingredients). I thought, overall, things were pricier than they should have been.

    Our food was delicious, but mine came out wrong once, was quickly corrected and was delicious. However, when I started eating it I realized half of my eggplant parm was chicken parm. As someone with dietary restrictions that can cause me to be very sick if I eat the wrong thing, this was very concerning.

    Host was rude and was not prepared despite the reservation. She assigned us to a server after checking to make sure the server was available. We waited about 15 minutes for anyone to attend to us once seated. It was a different server than initially assigned. That server was great. The salad was warm with a lot of wilted brown pieces. The main food was good.

    The salad dressing was flat and tasted like oil with no flavor as expected with balsamic dressing. The dinners were ok but nothing out of the ordinary. Things seem to have slipped since covid. Hope things get back to normal as this restaurant has been one of our favorites.

    I’m visiting from out of town and this restaurant was recommended. I found this to be subpar Italian food. The penne with vodka sauce was watery and too salty. The bruschetta was more like garlic bread with tomatoes. The spaghetti was nothing special, the spaghetti pomadoro was just okay. The Caesar salad was just okay, for this being a supposed higher end restaurant, I expect more than powdered Parmesan cheese on my salad or pasta. I would not recommend this restaurant.
