A quaint little Italian Restaurant where they make their own pastas from scratch in their kitchen. My wife selected Rack of Lamb. I ventured out and chose a roast lamb in pasta, sort of like raviolis. The cream sauce was wonderful!! Rack of lamb for...More

This is for travelers wanting a guaranteed good dining experience, without worrying about their pocketbook. We started with a sensational carpaccio with white truffle shavings, followed by well-prepared entrees-- veal chop, smothered in mushroom sauce; a perfect steak; and truffle risotto. Just off the town...More

Pleasant setting though the table sizes are super small. The staff was knowledgeable about the specials of the day though spoke so fast that the diners were left wondering what actually was available. The wine list of local wines is not extensive and the prices...More

This is Trip Advisor’s # 1 rated Paso restaurant. While it’s a very good Italian restaurant we didn’t see it as #1. We felt it a bit overpriced and the portions on the small side.

We have eaten dinner here several times. We always try to sit at the bar. It’s a 4 person bar and the service is super. The bartenders are always great and will recommend the best dishes of the day.
