We went there today for Easter and it was real nice. The view is excellent especially if you are OK with anglers in the water, watching the tide change, sun moving across the sky, birds, etc. The food was portioned well but be mindful that a soup or salad IS NOT included with a lunch entrée.

This is a very nice find. I've travel past their highway exit numerous times annually for the past 30 years and never bothered to exit in search of a place to eat until last week. Impressed enough that I took my wife there the very next day. There's a very warm atmosphere and greeting when you walk in with soft... More

Only been here once, but I will never forget the best Chicken Marsala I have ever had. On a sunny day the PNW is beautiful and this is a great place to enjoy a great dinner with views of the water and maybe the Mountain

I have had lunch here several times. You can order a panini for less than $10 and it comes with a side of salad. I get the Caesar and add anchovies. Add in a glass of Chianti (or two) and ... what a deal. Recently went there for dinner. I had the veal with mushrooms and it was excellent. In... More

We order the chicken Parmesan every time. It's the best around town, in our opinion. The wait staff are phenomenal. The view is lovely, love going in the summertime.

Owned by a bouistrous Italian man and run by his lovely wife, this is the most authentic Italian food which you'll find in Gig Harbor. Located on the water, the stunning views make the entire experience perfect. The free bread and dipping sauce are sooo good. Seafood is fresh and to die for!

We're here for the weekend and it was fun to find a little Italian place that had so much charm, good food and good service. We'll definitely go again when we're in town.

My dinner companion and I enjoyed a delicious meal next to a window with a nice view of the water and the sun going down. The food prices were very reasonable for the quality and portions you get. My only criticism, and it's a minor one, is that we barely had started to enjoy our appetizer when we were served... More

Massimo's story is as exquisite as is the food, and the service is uncomparable. My girlfriend and I had a hard time remembering service that was as good as there. Ask the hostess about the story of the place too and she will regale you stories of a young woman meeting a staunch romantic Italian at 16 and her story... More
