We have been going to this restaurant every time we visit grand forks but was a little disappointed this time around. The pasta was too thick, rich and a bit dry. We were satisfied with the other meals ordered. I would recommend the owner invest in colouring paper and crayons for the kids to pass the time while waiting.

Had a nice dinner with family here on a busy Saturday night. Service was fast and friendly. Menu is quite extensive and should provide numerous options for any taste and budget. I had the grilled shrimp spiedini. Plentiful, tender grilled shrimp with nicely seasoned grilled vegetables hit the spot as I was not hungry enough to handle pasta. The side... More

Reviews here were not bad gave this a try; wish I had done something else. If covering up "lack of flavor with garlic" is what you desire race to this place. Bread was luke warm no olive oil or butter just dry garlic bread. Had Pinot Grigio seafood pasta and only after dumping salt, crushed red pepper, Parmesan cheese did... More

First time visitor. Friendly staff who are very attentive. I had the trio which was chicken parm, lasagna, spaghetti. All were great! My fave by far was the chicken. The house salad was probably the best salad I've eaten! The dressing has a sweetness to it that I loved! Well priced and lots of leftovers (just make sure you don't... More

I really loved this place. Started with good service and a very fresh salad. The garlic knots could use more garlic and butter, however. Excellent pasta and some of the best pizza ever. Can't wait to go again!

I always have the all you can eat soup and salad and my partner has a pasta. The waiter keep up with both my soup and salad as well as my drinks. The food was delicious and will go there often.

My wife and I had heard good reviews about this place so we checked it out after a movie. I hate to write a bad review about any establishment but this was pretty bad. The lone bright spot was the pizza my kids had. They said it was good and they are picky so that made me happy. My wife... More
