Pleasantly impressed! I went to lunch here today with a group of coworkers. We had a great time. The food was good, I didn't hear one complaint. The focaccia bread served with the meal was excellent. I had the special today which was Chicken & Eggplant Parmigiana. It was very good. The pasta was cooked perfectly aldente. The chicken was not particularly juicy alone, but any dryness was not noticeable when eaten along with the slice of eggplant served on top of the chicken c...view moreutlet. The red sauce was also good. I tasted a coworkers dish of tortellini pesto (also on special), it was good too. I will likely return to this establishment.view less

It was nice.
I went here for lunch with a large group. The customer service was very good and the food came out promptly.
I had the weekday lunch special, Tortellini Pesto. It was excellent. The lunch special prices were good. The prices on other items appeared to be high.
It was very cold in there. I recommend wearing long sleeves and/or bringing a jacket or sweater.

Amazed

Took my partner to this cute place for his birthday. Been to this restaurant several times and was always satisfied. Upon sitting down at our table, we were greeted with this rude little mexican woman who slammed glasses of water on our table along with the bread basket. Our waiter would not even look at my dining partner. Did i mention my partner is black. Its one thing to be greeted with a disgusting attitude, but another thing when the individual serving you food your about to inges...view moret is rude and very impolite. When paying the bill, i tried to talk to the owner, I was told that i didnt not have to tip our waiter. Really..seriously?!? I have never been so disappointed and disgusted with the whole experience. I will never eat there again, and recommend you not be dining with black partner.view less

I'd prefer eating the grass in my garden

First of all, it's too expensive for crappy food. Our salad was almost frozen, obviously pre-prepared, and had no flavor. In addition, our calamari was undercooked, and rubbery. And to top it off, my Sangria was basically ice for almost 5 dollars. Finally, there was a mixup with our check, and we ended up paying way more than we were supposed to. Fantastic. \r

Pour couronner le tout, sa Sangria etait presque entierement constitue de glace, pour environ 5 dollars. Pour finir, il y eu une embrouille avec notre addition , et on finit par payer beaucoup plus que le prix etabli. Formidable.view less

Good, Solid, Downtown Pizza

We ordered one pepperoni and one ""lady fantasia"" (white pie with chicken and ricotta) for pick-up. Overall, we were impressed with the quality of the pies. The pizzas are baked in a wood-fired oven. The ingredients were fresh and flavorful. Unfortunately, all pizzas are only available in a 10"" size and there's no delivery service. Worth the short walk to Alamo street! We'd like to see more gourmet pizza options on the menu. We'll definitely order again soon.

Just another italian restaurant...

My colleague and I went there on V-day, since both of us are from Dallas and out of town for business. We wanted to experience something that was considered ""BEST OF"" in San Antonio. I was not impressed by the food and most of all, the dessert. I ordered Minestroni Soup, Cannelloni as entree, and Tiramisu for dessert. The soup was hot and flavorful. I enjoyed that. The Cannelloni was nice. However, I felt that Olive Garden Cannelloni was better. (That's pretty bad to compare ...view morethis restaurant to Olive Garden, since Olive Garden is more of a chain restaurant.) The Tiramisu was such a disappointment. The cream that surrounds the lady fingers tasted like regular chocolate whipped cream instead of the mascarpone cheese. The lady fingers was very blend, not moist, and I did not taste any coffee/expresso flavor. In between the lady fingers should be layer of mascarpone cheese; however, I tasted what appears to be regular whipped cream. I only took two bites and I had to ask the waiter for the check. The restaurant decor itself appears to be outdated. Christmas lights wrapped around the columns and panels against the walls. They had live music, but more like a one man band show. (A guy playing, what appear to be like organ/keyboard instrument.) I have to agree with few people that mentioned that the restaurant isn't anything to rave about it. The food was mediocre and the atmosphere was odd. Our waiter was nice and the service was average.view less

Great atmosphere and service

We were in town for a cheerleading competition and got this restaurant recommended to us from a waiter at a Riverwalk cafe. It was awesome. The focaccia bread was fantastic. The waiter Joe was super. A piano player was playing in the background and it was very welcoming and cozy. We had the sausage pizza and the spinach pizza with an Italian Rita. My compliments to the chef. We will definitely go back on our next trip to San Antonio.

Just OK

We went here after seeing it on ""the Best of"" list. I am really surprised this place was rated so high. The bread was good, but the rest of the food was nothing special. The calamari was chewy, but the breading was light and yummy. The alfredo sauce was more like a macaroni and cheese sauce - very strange. All in all we probably won't be back. The place is cute, and the waiter was very nice, the food is just not anything to rave about.

Great Italian

We went here for our anniversary because my husband heard that they had toasted ravioli. I used to live in St. Louis and good toasted ravioli is hard to find here in SA. La Focaccia's was awesome! I thought their focaccia bread was the best I had tasted. My husband had the chicken parmigiana which was a huge portion and delicious. I had the chicken fettucine and it was great. The sauce was perfect, the only thing was the chicken was a little dry. Overall great experience, would d...view moreefinitely go back!view less

Awesome food!

Impressive food for this eatery! A bit older building, but this should give you absolutely no hesitation as the food is some of the best Italian I've had since leaving Italy. Its relatively cheap and food is fantastic.
