Out on a motorcycle tour of the mountains and stopped for some good Italian food. Our waiter was super friendly and accommodating. He explained the menu as authentic and home made. It was average and nothing to write home about. Did not eat the pizza but perhaps should have as that is what everyone seems to like. Sauce was just... More

However the warm bread served with the salad was excellent! Ordered a 16" green pepper, sausage... More

We got 1 pepperoni and 1 with peppers, onions, pepperoni and black olives. Both were really good. Crust is thin and delicious.

We came here by chance whilst staying at the local RV campsite (Down by the River). Think we, as Brits, were a bit of a novelty for the staff, don't think they get many out-of-towners from Europe (altho I suspect that some of the staff may be the genuine Italian article.....)?! Huge pizza and a calzone, piping hot, and very... More

I went there when I stayed at the motel around the corner for work. It is typical Italian food, but I think it is really good for being out there away from town! The pizza is really good, and the pasta with white clam sauce is, too! The garlic bread is tasty, and they bake it fresh when you order... More

We visit this area several times a year and this restaurant is one of our perennial favorites. They have been around a long time and the food has always been consistently good. At one point or the other I have eaten almost all the cream based pasta dishes with the chicken Alfredo being the best. However, their best menu item... More

Love this place. Great Pizza & Calzones. Service was good and prices were good. Will definitely be back, as we day trip to this area often. If you are staying next door at the Pineola Inn don't miss out!
