Perfect place to sit and enjoy the hustle and bustle of Hidalgo while you eat. The pasta with meatballs was very tasty. Service excellent!

Great wine and italian food. We went here a couple times. Pasta, salads. They have their wine temp controlled so it does not spoil in the heat.

We approached this restaurant at 10:15pm on a Saturday night. The busiest part of the evening was over for restaurants. We asked if we could have a table. The waiter shrugged, gestured down the nearly-empty row of tables indicating that we could chose our own. So we chose a 4 seater table on the front so we could people-watch. Then... More

We tried many different dishes and they were all yummy. The pasta is homemade and the gnocchi is out of this world. The service is professional and they will go out of their... More

Think gnocchi is decadent? You have not lived until you try this gnocchi stuffed with gorgonzola and served in an amazing butter sauce. Justt allow it to sit on your tongue a moment before you bite into the gorgonzola filling I do not need to say more.
