Ok, so if you can set aside the small rooms and
the limited parking on the side, you are
in for a real treat!
I suggest calling for reservations first, as this
place gets filled up fast, especially on Friday
and Saturday nights.
My girlfriend took me here for my birthday, we
were seated right away and the staff was very polite.
The atmosphere has to be experienced
to get the full effects. For being such
a small restaurant, you get the feeling you have
the room all to yourself.
The city has certainly grown up around this
local business, and they sit on a very busy street.
But if you can dodge the kids riding their skate boards
down the street, and you can find a place to park, your
taste buds will fall in love with this place.
I had one of the best meals ever this night. It
came in the form of Alfredo and prawns.
Now, I’ve never been a big fan of Pasta, but this
was an excellent feast. The Alfredo sauce had
perfect consistency and the prawns were huge!,
juicy and flavorful as well. Along with a cold glass
of ice water and a small glass of wine, this was
one birthday I will remember for quite awhile.
A little pricey, and a bit of a wait, but nothing you
wouldn’t expect from the quality you receive.
Everything we tried there was quite tasty, even
the Pasta Primavera that my girlfriend ordered was a hit.
But the Alfredo and Prawns was definitely something
to remember so you might want to give it a try.
Located in the heart of Chico, this wonderful
little spot should be on your top 10 restaurants
to visit when you’re in the Chico area.
This was our fourth time here, and it gets better every time! The calamari is to die for, the best I've ever had. Its great
to order it as an appetizer then you get to enjoy some of their other wonderful items like Prawns Scampi, Chicken Piccatta and my wifes favorite, Chicken Americana. Great wine list, wonderful service. It isn't a quick in and out kind of place, everything is made to order and worth the wait. Cozy, old world feel...the Chef even came to our table and chatted with us..made us feel special. The creekside patio is really nice & romantic, but you have to request it when you make your reservation. Save room for the warm chocolate cake for dessert...Yum!
