I'm am surprised they are still open. A year later almost to the day by total accident I came with a group of friends. She order the salad. It had water standing in the bottom of the plate. My other friend order pasta with sausage. Now why would you just toss on a huge link. Why not cut it up... More

I have made spaghetti sauce since I was about 14 years old and have always done all the cooking in my home. This... More

The calzone...was horrible and I couldn't even eat it. Horribly short on fillings... my wife's pasta dish... while being... More

We helped ourselves to a menu after sitting there for some time and then sat and waited for 10 minutes while the wait staff sat and talked with the to delivery man before even acknowledging we were there. The prices were high. We just... More

Thanks for your review tigger2night,We do apologize that you were not given the service that you expected.We have changed things a bit to accommodate the rush, in that the host will turn over the delivery phone orders to someone else so that entering customers will get their water and seated with menus as soon as they come in the door,...

If you aren't looking for this very small restaurant, you will miss it! I have driven by it for years and not realized what was there. My husband and I decided to try it out and had a great dining experience. The service was good, the food was fantastic! It took almost 45 minutes for our calzone to get to... More

After my son had run a race at the nearby Idaho Center, we found this place using the TA app. We came in at 10:15 pm. They close at 11. Found that most places close at 10, even on Fri. They took care of us very well. We were the only ones there. Small and comfy. Nampa, I hope you... More

Good Italian food, but not as good as the previous place that was in the same location. Great meatball sandwich!

Nice change from "convention lunch" Worth the short drive from the Civic Center Lunch portion of lasagna was just right and good beer and wine choices also.
