I went twice with my husband. We enjoyed drinking some fernet with coke. I ate gnocchi ( I liked the sauce but it wasn't the one I ordered) we both liked the food. Good service. Gelato for dessert for sure!

Took my college daughter here, we sat outside in the patio-very relaxing. Food was great and the wait staff was very friendly.

Really authentic Italian food. The owner is from Italy. The menu is limited but really good. Kids really enjoy the pizzas that are on the menu.

We had lunch on Mother's Day, our first visit. Some of us wanted breakfast and one person had pasta lunch. Both were extremely good and well-presented. We had a reservation and they promptly greeted and seated us. We will definitely go back.

Pleasantly surprised this time on the wonderful menu choices. The baked eggs were very good, but they need to work on their bread as it's bland. The waffle was delicious.

We frequently eat at +39 because it is the best restaurant in Ames. It is real Italian. More of a European restaurant experience which is slower, more relaxing meal. If you’re looking for american Italian (Olive Garden, Fazollis), then expect a different experience at +39.

Three generations in Ames for Iowa State graduation. I think all six of us enjoyed a different meal; starter, pasta, pizza and salad. Our server was Jonathan Hanson and handled us well and everything correct! I had a great pizza and sampled the fried brussel...More
