My dad & I visited the restaurant today and found it delightful! Lunch size portions for the pastas are appreciated and delicious, and my salad with grilled chicken was perfect! Fresh bread to nibble on during the meal is divine ❤️

The bread is excellent!! The fried ravioli and the spinach and artichoke dip were enjoyed by the entire group. I ordered the cheese pizza and was very pleased with my entree selection. Waitstaff was attentive.

We found this place last year at the 100 mile century race. We have been returning to try new items off the menu. Love the food.

A group of 8 of us arrived close to closing time & they accomidated us very well. The bread/oil dip kept us satisfied until the food came out pretty quick. Everyone loved their food & we appreciated them staying late.

Great place in Cape Girardeau with a mid price menu. Outstanding service and the food quality is perfect. Love their Lobster Bisque, wonderful salads, pizza, and pasta dishes are some of the best in Cape Girardeau!
