Italian
For years, Paolo and Teresa Gaspari honored their Italian roots by bringing people together to enjoy good food, great wine and the company of friends and family. In 2019, John Ekizian took the reins and remains excited to continue the tradition of La Famiglia. The simplicity and perfection of fresh ingredients is the root of every meal we prepare here at La Famiglia, and all of our dishes pair beautifully with our vast collection of fine wines. From our pasta to our sauces, even to our freshly-squeezed lemon juice, we start from scratch. One bite, and you’ll understand the difference that handmade truly makes. Our courteous and attentive wait staff is ready to welcome you. Whether you’re joining us for a special night out, a family gathering or simply because you’re craving a delicious Italian meal, we hope you’ll spend it with La Famiglia.

    La Famiglia was a wonderful surprise! We had seen it but not stopped until our visit last week. Our Server, Regina, was pleasant and attentive. We sampled a Muscato wine (very pleasant), Brussels Sprouts appetizer (our new favorite), Caprese Salad (simply fantastic), and for our main course, my lovely bride had the Baked Penne and I had the Lasagne. They were delicious! We finished our meal with the Salted Cheesecake. A wonderful evening! Thanks La Famiglia!

    We often eat here before a show because the food is exceptional and it’s a short walk to the Pioneer Theatre. Last night the food was delicious as usual but table service was very slow, which is understandable with the current labor shortage and turn-over restaurants are suffering. Nonetheless, we made it to the theatre with time to spare so no harm done. We’ll be back soon.

    An excellent dinner before a show at the Pioneer Theater. Our waitress new we were going to the show and they we still had time for an unrushed dinner. We had the beef carpaccio appetizer, which nice and fresh, we followed with the beet salad. My wife’s veal was very tasty and cooked to perfection. My lasagna was excellent.

    Oh. My. God. Definitely recommend! You HAVE to have dinner here if you'll be staying in Reno! It is SO delicious and the quality of food and service is outstanding! Definitely make a reservation on OpenTable as seating is limited for a higher dine in experience. Service is amazing with many people checking in on us without being too much. Drinks were pretty great too!

    I love having a little time between courses and an attentive waiter/waitress. It's wonderful having help remove dishes quietly and unobtrusively. They do not say, "I'll just grab this from you." (You don't need to grab anything.)Dinner was fine and satisfying. I wish music was a more quiet.

    Wonderful meal on my birthday! Terrific food was enjoyed by my husband, me and our two guests. We began with the crispy calamari for the table, followed by the grilled artichokes. Both dishes were wonderful and enough for four to share. I had the Linguini Mare with a garlic sauce and it was delicious. Husband had the veal piccata because the veal Osso Bucco was not yet ready (we went early). The veal piccata was enjoyed by both husband and one guest and they both cleaned their plates! The bread was warm and the olive oil and balsamic vinegar for dipping was perfect. Our second guest had the shrimp scampi and greatly enjoyed the dish. The service was attentive but not intrusive and we all enjoyed tiramisu for dessert. It was a terrace experience and we will return. Thank you La Famiglia!

    Our server was so kind and helpful. We had veal Marsala that was super tender. Shrimp scampi was buttery and garlicky. Beet salad, Brussel sprouts and the house bread were all delicious. Homemade pasta was delicious. We r here 5 nts but will probably go back to try more. Care and attention toward produce, pasta and bread was top notch in the country.

    We were having dinner for our anniversary and when we first met our waiter he mentioned that we were there for that reason and to save room for dessert. Maybe it was presumptuous to think that it might be covered on our bill, but no. The only other thing is there that s no price’s for the specialty drinks on the menu, that was a little surprising, best to ask first!
