My wife and I traveled to Sun City West to visit with several family members. We met here twice for dinner and the food was excellent. I had veal and lamb chops and they were outstanding. The service was attentive and knowledgable. We will definately...stop in on our next trip down. My uncle lives in the area and this is one of his favorite restaurants.More

This was our first experience and we were not disappointed. We were a group of 6. Reservations made in advance. Ambience is fine with tables scattered around a large room with a larger dining area in the back. There is a bar area but not...conducive for sitting. Bruschetta was broght to the table upon being seated and it was very good. Wine list is limited but house selections are moderately priced at $6.95. I had the Veal Piccatta. The two medallions were delicious with a nice caper, lemon sauce. My wife had the fresh salmon special and it, too, was very good. Another couple had the tilapia and lobster raviloi. Both judged good. Wait person was professional and attentive. I would characterize the entrees as good to very good. Prepared well with good quality.More

I have been in twice in past few years and food was fabulous..looked forward to this year....and wish I had kept to my memories of the past. The food was good,not fantastic and over priced. It was my friend's first time and their last. I...am sorry, maybe it was a bad night in the kitchen...my pasta was under cooked and not that tasty. Will hope things will improve and they will return to being fantastic. If you have not been there, it is still worth going to see what you think.More

Table linens and live music made our dinner feel like a proper dinner out. The menu offers most of your favorite Italian entrees. Service was appropriately attentive. A plate of tasty bruschetta introduced our dinners of chicken picatta and veal parmesan. There were options for...soup or salad and also veggies or pasta to accompany the main course. Nice evening.More

They are most accommodating. I had chicken marsala (chicken with mushrooms) and veggies + salad and think those might work for her. Call and check to make sure.
