Pleased with Everything – My husband and I ate here for dinner the other day and it is a fantastic restaurant. The electric goat app is a must. Our salads were fresh and the chicken parm was awesome. Our server was very outgoing and knowledgeable about the food. We were very pleased with the service and food and will definitely be coming back.
Perfect Italian – This restaurant has AWESOME Italian food. I've enjoyed everything I've ever tried here. The pasta is fresh and everything is always cooked perfectly. I had the pasta la jolla the last time i was here and it was delish. It was fresh and flavorful. Next time I need to satisfy my Italian craving, i will def be coming back here.
All Around Great Restaurant – Heard great things about this place so my wife and I came here for dinner the other night and we were not disappointed. I really liked the atmosphere, the service was great and the food was amazing. If you're in downtown Iowa City this place is a definite must.
A GREAT Restaurant – Fantastic restaurant. Overall dining experience was great. Service was very friendly and our server knew the food and wine. We started with the spinach and artichoke alforno which was awesome. For dinner I had the steak braciole which was cooked to perfection and delicious. My girlfriend had the salmon which she raved about. I would recommend giving this place a try, the service is friendly and the food is delicious.
Fantastic! – YUM! This place is great. The fried mozzarella here is awesome and I looove the sweet potato ravioli. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly and our overall dining experience was fantastic. We will definitely be returning.
I Will Definitely Return – I was in Iowa City this past week for work and had the pleasure of eating here while I was in town. The atmosphere was great and the food delicious. I ordered the Steak Braciole, which was served with mashed potatoes and a vegetable. It was delicious. Not only was the food great but the service was impeccable, I will definitely be returning next time I'm in town.
Impressive – I was very impressed with this place. First off, the decor and atmosphere are awesome. Second, the food is great. Third, the service was impeccable. The ingredients are fresh and everything tastes amazing. The pasta here is a must, I really enjoy the Spinach Ravioli with Shrimp and the Lasagna. No matter what you choose, you will not be disappointed.
Definitely Worth Checking Out – The food here is awesome! My husband and I like to come here for dinner sometimes. We like to start out with the Fried Mozzarella or the Bruschetta, they are both enjoyable. The salads here are fresh and flavorful but I really enjoy the Pecan Crusted Walleye, it is delightful. It is cooked to perfection and served with vegetables and mashed potatoes. My husband almost always orders from off the grill and always enjoys his meal. We always get the Three Cheese Ravioli to go, our son is 2 and a half and just loves it. Not only are the food and service great but it has a great location, located right in the heart of the Ped-Mall. It is definitely worth checking out.
A Must!! – I've been eating here for as long as I can remember and I have never been unsatisfied. I absolutely love the decor!! It's different and unique and makes you want to explore the place and learn about the building. I have tried numerous things on the menu, which have all been wonderful. No matter what you order, you are guaranteed to enjoy it. The service is also great and welcoming. The servers I've had have always been knowledgeable and friendly and they do a great job at helping you pair wine with food. If you're in downtown Iowa City, this place is a must!
Not a bad spot – I like this restaurant and plan to come again. The food never disappoints, although it tends to be on the small side. I love their Electric Goat appetizer, goat cheese in a spicy marinara sauce. The ravioli dishes are also great.
The eating environment is eclectic, but bearable. The place kind of reminds me of an 80's disco (I think it's the neon lights that do it) combined with a number of other elements. There's also outdoor eating in the summer.
