We forgot to show our Groupon upon placing our order. When we got our tab and presented the Groupon, the server's whole attitude changed and suddenly we were treated like criminals for an honest mistake. The food is okay but way overpriced and way overrated. Ambiance is fantastic.

I'm not sure why, but the 2 times we went in, the food was very bland. the salad was good, the bread is good but the service and food left us flat both times. I wanted to try it again after going 2+ years ago and it didn't improve my feeling. Lastly, the price point for these items suggests excellent food with impeccable flavoring and it just isn't there.

The handsome Maitre d was very attentive, and during the course of the meal, we saw him doing everything from seating people, to busing tables, and delivering food. He was everywhere, and very nice. Our waiter was prompt, and non-intrusive. The meal was delivered with little delay, hot, and delicious. A glass of house red was moderately priced. I had a very nice experience. I was there with my business partner, to have a nice evening, relaxed conversation, to enjoy good food and music, and my expectations were fulfilled. We were in suit and tie, but others were dressed more casually.

Excellent food, great atmosphere. You won't be disappointed. Reservations suggested during peak dining hours. However we did not have them but did not wait long. Very good service.

Would not recommend this restaurant. Service was very slow, food was mediocre. Restaurant was very loud and we were seated 2inches from the piano singer.

Food had been good on previous visits, although quite over priced for what it was. Food last night was horrible and over priced which isn't an acceptable combination. They were very busy due to the expiring groupon date approaching but I still had the expectation of tasty food for the price. The best part of the meal was the caprici salad (sliced tomatoes, mozzarella and basil) but 10 bucks for 4-5 servings?

From Our Editors

Outside, the 100-year-old barn has all the expected adornments—a windmill, antlers mounted over the awning, a corrugated-metal roof. It's inside where things turn unexpected. Century-old Italian memorabilia hangs from the rustic siding. Servers mix caesar salads at tables draped in red-and-white tablecloths and surrounded by chairs with basket-weave backs. This fusion of Italian restaurant and Texas barn may seem an unlikely union, but there's a simple logic to it. When the Cavatore family came to the United States, it came from the pastoral regions of Northern Italy, a rich agriculture area known for its wine, truffles, and herds of wild colanders. Thus, converting the barn to a restaurant made sense, as it both embraced the family's Italian heritage and hearkened back to their countryside roots. In addition to serving the flavors of their homeland, the family members also keep their wine list heavy on Italian selections.
