My husband and I visited one evening for dinner. We shared an order of cheese ravioli and meatballs due to the large portion.. Overall, the meal was good but ravioli covered in too much sauce. The staff was friendly and attentive.

It was very busy, even mid-week. We elected to eat at the bar. Friendly server. We shared a delicious pizza and each had a salad. Portions are large. You could even split the salad it's so large.

Out of about 10-15 eating places we ate at around Tahoe, Lanza's was by far the best. We went there mid week and returned again for our last night. From the steak, chicken, the veal, pastas, soup, and salad- it was all made from scratch...More
