Pros: Great food, service, music, atmosphere, and price

Cons: A little too hot; piano needed to be tuned.

Definitely you are better off going to macaroni grill or olive garden if you are craving for Italian in the SA area and don't know where to go. The food had no taste, the dish with meat was overcook (almost burned), appetizer which was

Pros: location

Cons: bad food, filty kitchen and bathrooms, lousy "belly dance" show

This place was fantastic! At the end of the Riverwalk, away from the crowds. Very good pasta, seafood, steak and desserts. Live music and the belly dancer comes out to entertain you. This place is unique - a must go!.

Pros: Close to hotels, on the river, not a boring chain, cozy and romantic, live Jazz

What a fabulous place. One of the only non-chain restaurants remaining on the Riverwalk ! You gotta see it to believe it. The food was excellent, fettuccini alfredo was rich and loaded with flavor, garlic bread was terrific. My husband

It was the worst restaurant experience I have ever had in my entire life. The food was cold, stodgy and completely tasteless. They refused to show us a wine list and when we finally settled on a bottle of wine they tried to charge $54
