I had a gift certificate to this place and was so pleased at the atmosphere, service, and food that I will be back to spend my own money here! It would be amazing to have dinner before a show at the Pioneer Event Center.

We went to the show and had dinner afterwards here, which was great. Love Italian food and it was good here. Service was excellent, we had Jason as our server who did an excellent job. The restaurant was beautiful and very clean. Also a very popular place for a meal after or before a show at the Pioneer Theatre. Apparently... More

A super meal with family & friends during Superbowl weekend. The ten of us invaded this family friendly restaurant one evening and were greeted like long lost family. Service was exemplary, the food was absolutely delicious, and the wines were so complimentary to every dish served. Just like any Italian family, we shared bites of every dish so all could... More

First time visiting La Famiglia and we were very impressed. House salad dressing was wonderful but a bit lacking in salad ingredients. The Beef Carpaccio was amazing with just the right amount of capers, lemon, parmesan and arugula. Veal marsala was tender and flavorful but Spaghetti and meatballs was missing a little something. Good portion size and decent wine list.... More

They had a delicious salad and I had the Tortellini en Brado soup.... More

A great place for Italian food. The prices are fair, the service usually very good and the food is excellent. They also have a fine selection of wines. I highly recommend this restaurant, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Four of us were in Reno and tired of eating at the Casinos. When we opened the door, the wonderful smells filled our noses. We had reservations and were immediately seated. The waitress made us feel welcome and answered questions we had re the menu. One of us ordered the pasta with shrimp, mussels, scallops in a marinara sauce, He... More
