The Italian food is the best in El Paso. Ambiance is excellent. Compared to Boston or Chicago Italian it’s a 4/5 though. The gnocchi is fresh and delicious. Eggplant is wonderful. The caprese was okay, tomatoes were nothing special but mozzarella was good. The tomato based sauces are okay, not amazing. All of the pasta dishes were good and the fruita de mara fish was good, that’s saying something for El Paso.

Restaurant is great, however they had an EVENT that created a lot of noise and slowed service. Should have closed or warned prior to the reservation.

Dinner was delicious, service was great. Tables are a little too close together, could overhear conversation at the table next to us. Would return, however, since the food was so good.

Great experience. Food was good, but wish the taste and portion was as wonderful as the presentation. Our waitress was wonderful and very attentive. Will return again!

Good tasting comforting realistic Italian food. Nice food menu & good wine list. Pleasant service without being intrusive. I received a complementary dessert for having booked through OpenTable.

Really liked the place. Overall we would have rated it higher except that we told the waiter my wife had a nut allergy and her dish came put with nuts anyway. It didn't even mention nuts in the dish on the menu. They apologized, but we had to wait another 20 minutes for her food to come out while I waited to eat mine as it sat on the table. If that hadn't happened, it would have been a great place with smooth ambiance.
