This is not fancy but rather it is good basic Italian food. Two of us had the chicken calzone with green chilli sauce, if for no other reason, that we were curious about the combination. They are a fabulous combination! The green chilli sauce is something we had not previously encountered, being a specialty of the region according to our... More

Calzones! Green chili??? Wrap your head around that one for a minute! When I spotted the three cheese chicken calzone with a side of green chili on the menu I was slightly hesitant-love them both...and I was just miles from green chili's birthplace of Pueblo...still...took a risk and this is a fantastic combination-green chili with jalapeños-perfect heat for the slow...

The food was expellant. I ordered a small portion but there was still a lot there. The service was great and friendly atmosphere.

I met a friend for lunch there and ran into several folks I know. The place was busy but our waitress was very considerate and checked on is several times. I had the chicken calzone with green chili--always the right amount of kick to the chili. My friend had the fettuccine and it was delicious. We will return again for... More

Canon City isn't known for it's fine dining. The four-star rating is based on the availability in Canon City. The staff is very friendly (we showed up just before closing time and they were very accommodating) the service was very fast, and the portions were generous. We had simple dishes and they were filling and satisfying.

Pizza. Service was extremely polite but slow. Promise to return with a lemon for my water, never happened. Sicilian delight, was lacking the sauce a Sicilian would like! The cost of 7.50 one would think consist of sauce one could see! The house soup was very tasty. I would rate the soup a 4+ along with the fresh bread. My... More

This place was recommended to us by some folks staying at our motel. My husband and I each had a salad and he had a pizza, and I had a calzone. Both were very good. My calzone was the 911 calzone, which was quite spicy, as it was supposed to be! It was very good, but next time, I will... More

We have eaten here several times and will keep going back for the food and service. The staff is super friendly especially during the busy lunch. The salads are fresh and well put together. Their vinaigrette dressing (house) is just incredible. Their pizza is fresh, hot and cooked exactly to order. The calzones are delicious but the sauce that comes... More
