The poor dinner we had may be why we haven't been here for some time. While the calamari appetizer was good, the salmon was over-cooked and smothered in too much lemon-lime salsa. It might as well have been a piece of catfish. The mushroom risotto...More

Went for dinner. The waiter was very attentive and the food was very good. It was a little surprising to see so little people dining. Definitely will return!

Great brick oven pizzas! I would give 5 stars but my tiramisu was frozen! Service is always great. We like to go there for date nights. I can't wait to try the outdoor seating when the weather cools off a bit.

Great service, steaks cooked as ordered. Nice to be able to enjoy aged prime steak cooked expertly. Harlingen is fortunate to have such a nice restaurant.

Lots of selections from fresh pizza to New York strip. But don't pass on the wonderful appetizers, especially the calamari that is always fresh and tender. All deserts are made in house and large servings are plenty for two to share. Cheesecake and tiramisu are...More
