Italian fare, but not all choices are 100% authentic. But it is ALWAYS excellent! Service is legendary, good wine list, and you can get gluten free pasta if needed. The maitre d', Ray, has long been a familiar and friendly face at the restaurant's entrance....More

Excellent Italian right in the heart of Helena. Rated best restaurant in Montana by one of the local business magazines.

Delicious Alaskan halibut and salmon and a good Italian wine. Service and atmosphere nice. I give it an enthusiastically good rating.

We had a very nice meal at a reasonable price. I would have rated the restaurant higher except the service was somewhat slow, and, more importantly, I had a direct view of the kitchen. The kitchen cleanliness level was not what I would consider good.
