    Went here a few months back with a friend for her Birthday while looking for someplace new to eat. Didn't think much of the exterior, but the interior atmosphere was warm and inviting. Service was excellent and so was the food! Since it was my first time, I went with my Italian go-to barometer of Veal Parm. It was wonderful! Needless to say, I will be back, but this time with my ultra-picky hubby!

    Thank you for all you did in helping us to have a successful fund raiser for the Lago Vista Vets. Many people came up to us and said this was the best party ever attended at Lago Vista. I am sure we will back many times in the future.
