Fried cheese is amazing. I always enjoy the lasagna and the pignoli meatballs are amazing. My cousin had a great ammertto sour made by the owner that she said was great. I would give 5 plus stars but it is a bit on the pricey side compares to other restaurants in the springs. Nice atmosphere too

We decided to try out Dat's Italian because they had a Groupon, but it was not worth the visit. All the food came out on a bed of under cooked boxed spaghetti. None of the food was very good, the chicken dishes were rubbery and all of our food was very dry. The service was horrible. We were one of... More

Really good food with a bit of an American flair. The place is kind of small but the ambiance makes up for the lackof space.

This is a small family owned restaurant. We do not eat at chains when traveling and decided to give it a try. The dishes were generous but they were served to us at room temperature. The pasta carbonara had too much garlic. The lasagna and baked spaghetti was good. The server was nice but seemed disorganized.

... easily one of the best Italian restaurants I've ever been to. And what's up with this town and adorable waiters? Amazing food, fantastic wine, and killer desserts. Make a reservation and dive in here. Perfect date night, as well. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Nice atmosphere, homemade pasta, large servings enough for 2 to split, meatballs are delicious, desserts also large enough for 2 to split. We will definitely be going back often, Owner Italian

Our first visit here started rough. We were seated promptly but without menus. Our friend decided to just grab some after waiting for a few minutes. Server took a good 10 minutes to even greet us. Another 10 minutes for water and drinks. Being a server myself, I found this to be unacceptable. That being said - food was great.... More

My husband loved his putanesca dish. Child had the lasagna, as one of the cheeses they use is ricotta salata it had a tangy taste she didn't care for. Not a problem, my yummy eggplant parmesan had a hearty pasta portion (though more sauce would have been good), she shared that with me (lasagne taken home). The small salads were... More

Made my first reservation for a party of nine and was accommodated as though we'd been life-long customers. There was only one chef and one server that night and although we did have to wait a bit longer for our meals it was well worth it. The server tried his best to keep up and we observed how hard he...
