This basement restaurant is a departure from other Ouray fares. It is fine dining in the Italian style, with enough menu choices to satisfy anyone, and a reasonable wine list to complement it. The servers were most attentive and we enjoyed everything about it.

Although veal was not on the menu (I had heard it used to be) the pork piccata was incredible and just as good! Great service. The Goose caboose desert is excellent.

We sat on the patio and had great service and a delicious dinner. The pomegranate mojitos were very refreshing after a long day of hiking. I'd definitely eat here again.
