After a twenty minute wait even with reservations we were seated. We started with a bread and olive offering. Tasty. We enjoyed the lasagna and the gnocchi for entrees. The gnocchi was a bit dry but still tasty. The lasagna was perfect. A salad is...
Great food but poor service. Waiter didn’t check on us all night. Horribly understaffed. We would have stayed and had another cocktail but no one came. Had to ask for a to go box twice and the check.
We chose Rain Uptown for a graduation night dinner - bad choice. We waited more than 20 mins to be seated for an 8:30 pm reservation. When we were seated, we determined the place was horribly understaffed. The poor newbie waitress did her best despite...

We were running out of options on a Texas Tech graduation night. I called this restaurant based on the Trip Advisor ratings. They seated us right away in a semi private room. The service was very good. We ordered the Gnocchi Pesto which was excellent....
This is a small and friendly Italian restaurant. We love the food. We ordered the escargot which had a luscious garlic butter herb sauce and the texture was perfect. My cioppino was rich, flavorful and full of seafood. In the past I've asked them to...
