    Was a lovely evening mid week and not very crowded. Everyone loved their course and it was nice that a small salad was included. The pastas were a big hit across the board and we loved the tiramisu and the lemon cheese cake was so fluffy. Thanks for a great celebratory evening.

    Second visit was as perfect as the first. This is without a doubt the best food on the island. Excellent service, atmosphere and romantic place for dinner. I had Osobuco and it was fall apart tender and incredibly flavorful, served over the most perfect creamy saffron risotto I have ever eaten. My wife had handmade Lobster Ravioli in pink sauce with a grilled Lobster tail on top. Add a bottle of small Vinyard Italian Red and everything was just perfect. A bit pricey but worth every penny. Five stars.

    This restaurant is a little jewel. It is a little off the main area and hard to find but very good. Pina is from Sicily and does all her own cooking. This is our favorite restaurant in Galveston. Try her blue crab ravioli with Rosa sauce

    What a lovely way to spend my husband's birthday. Highly recommend you have reservations for dinner, especially on weekends. Joel was our waiter and he was very knowledgeable, and pleasant and kind. Husband had the scampi and was happy. I had the grouper and WAS IN HEAVEN! All their pasta is homemade and delicious! I took some back to the apt. and ate the last of the fish (cold...yes cold) actually 2 mornings later an it was still YUM!

    So glad we made reservations...without, I'm not sure we would have been able to dine. Place was packed with locals/regulars and out of towners just the same. We enjoyed our meal, the attentive service and ambiance. My husband and I shared the calamari. It was cooked to perfection. I had the seafood risotto, it was full of seafood!! So creamy and delicious. Unfortunately, we didn't save room for dessert.... Would definitely dine again and recommend!!

    My wife and I have a new favorite date place. Trattoria la Vigna was outstanding in every way. Quite, friendly service and romantic atmosphere. But most of all the food...oh the FOOD! I have never had such wonderful homemade pasta. The Veal was delicious. My wife had the special...lobster ravioli in pink sauce with a perfectly cooked lobster tail. Can't wait to go back.

    Cute, small restaurant. I suggest making reservations. Service very friendly and inviting. The anti pasta board was a great appetizer. The salads were very good. The entrees were absolutely delicious. The four of us all loved our choices. Shrimp scampi with homemade pasta, vegetable lasagna, and eggplant parmigiana were amazing. Everything is fresh and homemade, so dinner takes a while. Good wine list. So glad to have found this little gem!

    This is the sort of restaurant that Galveston needs more of. Well made food served by professional caring staff. Pina, the owner is seen working hard in the open kitchen. Many classic Italian American dishes are found on a right sized menu including a proper wine list with generous balance of Italian and American made wines. Prices are surprisingly low for the quality offered. Glad we tried something new and expect we will return regularly.
