Saturday night...very few patrons at 6:30pm and throughout meal.
Service was pleasant and attentive.

My meal, a clam/pancetta linguine dish was very disappointing. Sharp/broken clam shells, unopened clams, clams open had no meat in them. Cream based sauce very thick and goopy, like glue, difficult to identify clams or other ingredients. Pancetta (or garlic?) was crunchy/sticky. Topped off with a large slice of grill-fried bread that once picked off of the pasta revealed a very unattractive dish. The taste was barely OK. Presentation/general quality terrible.
Wife's meal Mediterranean eggplant/ chicken dish; she was satisfied but far from impressed.
Friend's meal was Ahi..primary feedback was to much of what was thought too be "lemon-pepper". Not impressed.
Friend's wife meal I do not remember, at all.
On top of it all, the TR Zin we had was on it's way to going bad.
Meal prices were high, especially for pasta dishes...insult to injury that the meals were poor to tolerable.
Perhaps it was just a bad night, but this is our first and last time here. FWIW, having eaten at the old location in Minden, the food was very good.

Service very attentive and caring people. Food, wine and olive oils and balsamic vinegars wonderful. The restaurant is very good also. We have been a member of their wine club since they started out in Genoa long ago. We have never had any complaints only compliments. Mary is such a wonderful person on their staff and was very helpful and caring. She makes the whole trip worthwhile!

There is no other place like this in Carson City. It's bistro dining with a most interesting and varied menu. We really enjoyed the local wines. The food was good and the service was adequate.

We were awarded a free $5.hors d'orves certificate at the resort we were staying at and decided to try this place. Very pleasantly surprised as their food was excellent and the wine tasting both informative and tasty. Mary, our hostess was excellent, very friendly and patient. The wines are very good and the ambiance is winery themes as expected. Good olive oil tastings as well. I'd go there again for a full lunch if in the area again.

Had lunch there the other day with my mom, very interesting menu with a lot of selection and the services was good. Love the decor and what was done with it.
