Awesome food and service! The chicken Gorgonzola is amazing if served over pasta, and the veal parmesan special is incredible. Affagotto for desert is amazing!

We were here for lunch and were surprised by the stylish and modern, yet comfortable, atmosphere. Our service was great and the food was, too. Lunch menu consisted mainly of sandwiches and panini. We did sneak a peek at the dinner menu, just to look, and it looked like classic Italian fare with a great wine list. Seems like it... More

Wonderful Italian food with a wait staff that is kind and helpful with menu choices. We brought out own wine and paid a corking fees that was reasonable. Will go back when we are in town for sure.

Our first visit to this new restaurant, absolutely delightful food and service! The hand-rolled ravioli was delicious, with a light and mildly spicy-sweet sauce. My spouse had the Cavatappi with pesto...amazingly, our not-so-adventurous kids wanted to try both, and proclaimed this their new favorite restaurant.

Not sure what to think about this place. Wife has Cannelton that were only warm. Two of us had chicken parmesan which was fine. Our fourth had ravioli that he thought was not good. Plus they have a very strange Ceasars salade that had tomatoes in it. Never seen that before.

First visit to this lovely spot in downtown Bozeman. Great location with outdoor, creek-side dining. Nice selection of menu items with variety to please four picky eaters, including two teenagers. Good wine list. We'll be back.

We took our customers there for lunch and was surprised by the very nice location and openness. There were six of us and had no problem getting in and being able to be seated together. The restaurant is not overly large but very pretty and the food was terrific, all but one of us had some type of salad. If... More

This place is a nice place with a wide range of items on the menu - was there for a business meeting and it was great. Good value and fresh, well-prepared food. Service was excellent.

I've driven by this restaurant a number of times, and finally stopped for dinner last night. What an amazing treat. If the weather is good, outside dining by the creek is as nice a venue as you will find in Bozeman. Both of our meals were absolutely superb. Delicious and beautifully presented. I was particularly impressed with their wine list,... More
