    Four of us enjoyed dinner on a Thursday evening. We had a reservation but probably could have gotten in without one. We all ordered something different and every entre was delicious. The service was wonderful as we were served by the owner. Ambiance is delightful and you don’t want to miss this place if you are in the area.

    We are repeat visitors. This time, the staff seemed a short this visit with only one person waiting on about 6 tables. Maybe because it was a Sunday evening. I ordered the lasagna and a couple noodles we’re actually burned/charred, but still used and hidden under the sauce. This was disappointing. We love the ambiance of the restaurant. However, this time had a major misstep with the burned lasagna noodles.

    We’d planned to have cocktails with our appetizer, then order wine with our entrees and perhaps dessert later. Instead, our main courses were brought out shortly before the appetizer. The two courses with sides and bread took up the entire table. This restaurant would do better to serve appetizers first, wait until they are eaten, then serve the mains in due course. This wasn’t a fine-dining experience; it felt more like an Italian diner. They also missed out on revenue from wine and dessert, since all our food was served before we’d even finished our cocktails. On the plus side, the food was good. I would go again, but would keep my meat/pasta selections a secret until our appetizers were finished. It shouldn’t be treated like fast food.

    The food was fine. The wait staff was attentive, but the ambiance was a little strange and the music was not at all consistent with the Italian theme of the restaurant. It was conveniently located near the park and everyone was very friendly.

    We were excited to try this. The outdoor seating area is wonderful and the restaurant has a lot of regulars. The staff was friendly. Our meals were decent. I had the gnocchi and my husband had the carbonara. The flavors of the gnochhi and the bolognese were mild. I don't know what I was expecting. Anyway better than being overly salted or too garlicky etc. The unfortunate part was the wine. We ordered two different types of red wine and both tasted old/borderline vinegary. We will go back however and will ask about any specials. It looked like they had grilled octopus available and it looked great! I appreciate the hard work of the staff and owners and they have loyal clientele which was great to see.

    As always the food was outstanding…it’s one of the most reliably delicious menus in town. Unfortunately, we were seated in the alcove area by the front window. It’s usually a favorite spot for us but on this night we were the only ones in this section and forgotten by the service team. We had to flag someone down for almost everything: ordering, boxing up leftovers, getting a dessert menu and then paying for the meal. It felt like hard work to get acknowledged over the tables on the other side of the wall and not the usual from this place. I can only assume they were severely understaffed so we will chalk it up to a bad night. We will be back because our other experiences with service have been great…

    My daughter and I were at a concert staying in Snoqualmie. We decided to go out and eat and there were a couple places we were going to try, but I've always been a fan of Italian food and it seems you can never go wrong. In this case that was certainly A wise choice. This is some of the best food that I've ever eaten anywhere. Granted I'm not a food critic but I have cooked in a lot of Italian restaurants under Italian owners. And I have two Italian restaurants that are my favorites here in Eugene Oregon. But this is the best food I have ever had. It is a family-owned restaurant and the family takes care of you. I felt like I was in a European Cafe, or that I was in the home of a family. If this were not 5 hours from my house I would plan on going there as often as possible. There wasn't one single bite that I took that I didn't thoroughly enjoy. It was so good that I ate everything on my plate and I swore I was going to take some home. There wasn't anything about that restaurant that was less than five stars. Whatever they want for their food and the price category is more than worth it

    The food was absolutely delicious, to the extent that we summoned the chef from the kitchen. They were short staffed that evening, two people handling the entire restaurant and they pulled it off seamlessly. Great service, nice people. We loved it.

    Enjoyed a nice dinner with five of us on a Monday evening to celebrate my wife's B-day. Being a Monday it was around half full. It looked like the sole waiter would be overwhelmed, but he did a great job. Was attentive and a good sense of humor. Food arrived rather quickly as we enjoyed or salads, bread and wine. Very good experience. We'll look to return.

    What a disappointment. Showed up 10 min early for our reservation and the place was mobbed with a large group. Hostess told us that we would have to leave and come back later. We thought something up when the group in front left complaining that they were turned away. Funny thing is I made the reservation that afternoon. If you are going to have a large party don’t take reservations. If the group walked in unplanned they should have been turned away because they wouldn’t be able to honor existing reservations. Not our first poor experience there. Hostess/waitress was as rude and u professional the last time. We will never be back.

    Usually the service is quite good but this last visit left us deeply disappointed. The food, however, remains excellent. I just expected more from Francesco, and he let me down. If they are short-staffed, they should limit the number of patrons seated at tables. Adding more customers only further weakens the service experience for everyone involved. And then people like me will stop going to his restaurant.
