    Fantastic food and beautiful restaurant. My husband and I went to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we were treated by a special visit from the chef to our table! He gifted us the most beautifully plated desserts - a special seasonal cheesecake with the most incredible cannoli we've ever had! We can't say enough good things about our special experience at Nativo's. Can't wait to go back!

    Waitress Serena was awesome. We did think it was a little over priced at basically $60 a person however so we probably won't come again because of that. But overall it was lovely. Good quality of food but we did feel a little rushed because our reservation was at 2 pm and they were wanting to close down at 2:30. And it was hard to get the staff to help us at the buffet bc they were gone then came out to start putting the food away but you couldn't help yourself, they had to do it so that took forever.

    This is the second time we've been to Nativos so this is going to be a review of both times. Both times the service was good. It was not busy in there either time and yet it took a while to get the food. The food :: first time I ordered the Bolognese and it was ok. I would order it again. The second time I ordered the mushroom ravioli. Not very good at all. I asked for red sauce and when they brought it, it was smothered. Like soup. Very strong mushroom flavor for ravioli so if you like that then it will be good and the sauce was bitter, I ate maybe 4 ravioli and just couldn't eat any more. My husband got shrimp scampi. His was also smothered in the butter sauce, way too much, almost soupy. Very fishy vs buttery garlic flavor. The shrimp were cooked beautifully and it had a nice flavor for the most part except strong fishy flavor which became overpowering and he only ate half. His noodles were a little clumpy. He ordered the calamari appetizer and it was very salty and the calamari were like chewing rubber bands. Sent back and got the meatball instead. Flavor of meatball was good but the sauce was a bit bitter, it was the same sauce on the ravioli by the way. Don't think we will be going back. Atmosphere was nice, quiet except for a few loud patrons which isn't restaurants fault, service was polite.

    We started with the fungi appetizers. Loved them. I was talked out of the Shrimp Scampi main course for the lasagne . Lasagne was very good and the portion was gynormous. Of course I finished it but regretted it. My mother in law had the Shrimp Scampi and it looked wonderful. She said it was wonderful. My Wife had the Chicken Marsala and it looked very very rich. She said it was wonderful. We ended with a Chocolate something or other dessert that was great. Perfect ending to a nice meal. We got to see a beautiful sunset when we were seated. One thing though. I made reservations in advance to make sure we would have a table. Part of the reservation process, they asked if we were celebrating anything. We were taking my Mother in Law out for her 80th birthday. Upon arriving we were greeted by the Hostess, who found our reservation and immediately said Happy Birthday to Mom. I thought that was a nice touch. My thinking was they would bring her out some Ice Cream or something for dessert. No such luck. Waitress never mentioned or acknowledged her birthday. I thought that was kind of weird. Especially sines they asked on their online reservation system. Not sure if that was an oversight or they just don’t do anything extra. But why would they ask? Just so the Hostess could say Happy Birthday? Other than that was a great Italian Dinner.

    Nice restaurant, we forgot our eyeglasses and couldn't read the menu. Then our waitress stop by and we gave her our story. I said that's OK I will take the chicken Parmigiano and my husband ordered the lasagna, but they were out so she suggested the bolonise, then she left and didn't offer any soups or salad. Our food came out immediately, we hadn't even received our wine glasses. But we still had a good time,food was delicious.

    We've been going here for many years for the Sunday Brunch and have brought many friends. The price hasn't changed but the food has. You no longer have the King Crab and have substituted it with the smaller Snow Crab. You used to have the Champagne and Orange Juice cocktail as a part of the meal but it now cost $5 more. You also have had the Spanish Ham but we haven't seen it in years. For the price, I don't feel that it is worth the long trip up there.

    We decided to sit outside which was a bad choice because we were pretty much ignored out there. When our waiter came out after we were there for about 15 minutes and simply asked if we were ready to order, we told him we would like a cocktail first and an appetizer which we ordered the meatball with ricotta but alas there was no ricotta. It was quite bland and the sauce was just okay. We both finished our cocktails and water but no one would check on us. Finally our waiter came out and we ordered another cocktail but no one cleared any of our dishes or empty cocktail glasses. We the din receive our entrees and they were fair, not once did our waiter ask how our meals were. Quite disappointed and it was our anniversary to boot, which the waiter was aware of.

    The ambience was both casual and romantic. It was our 45th wedding anniversary and we couldn't have been more pleased with our dining choice. We felt warmly welcomed from the Hostess to the server who brought rolls and water on to our dining Server. Professional yet friendly. We loved every minute and will definitely be back. My husband had the chicken marsala and I had the shrimp scampi and they were both delicious. Mine was accompanied by a peach bellini! So refreshing! In honor of our anniversary, our server brought us the cheesecake with raspberry sauce. Don't miss out on this experience!

    I fully understand a change to the pre-pandemic glorious buffet at Chukchansi and cost-savings since but what is in place is terrible, overpriced and not worth the offerings. There is an attempt to overcharge to justify doing it ($59 per person and $5 mimosas!) but it's not really a buffet. The buffet is in this tight space and we had reservations for two then had to sit at those uncomfortable highchair tables near the bar and everyone else is seated at a table if more than two--again the space is not suitable for a large buffet crowd and it's obvious that it is discouraged. The food selection is underwhelming and there not too friendly servers at every item asking how many do you want--how many shrimp, crab legs, bacon, sausage?! I was furious by the time I got to the omelette station. The only selection where you were not monitored were the desserts and there was too much of that and a tiny selection of fruit. The only upshot were the wait staff--very friendly and attentive. They really went out of their way to make the meal enjoyable. I think they know that we are being ripped off a bit and that's a shame. Get rid of this buffet or go back to what you had before.

    It was a amazing dinner. One of the best if not the best Italian food I have had. We had the meatball for a appetizer it was amazing and the chicken pesto and chicken Alfredo both the best and large portions. Service was the best. We can't wait to go back.

    I’m sorry to say that I was quite disappointed, the other 2 in my party thought it was ok. When we were seated, the host didn’t give us any info.. ie.. server will be right with you, you may go ahead and start etc. waiter was great once he finally made it to our table. Salt n pepper shakers were dirty with Italian sauce, I suppose…. Looked nasty. Flowers on table weren’t watered. Might seem minor but at $60. a person, I would expect a little cleaner ( maybe I’ve been in the restaurant/food industry too long. Some of the bacon was 2 inches long and burnt to a crisp (black). It was in a chaffing dish so it had been cooked elsewhere and those pieces should have been removed from serving. I wish I had taken a picture. Didn’t seem to be enough to wait staff on serving stations so some items we had to skip. Normally I would not complain or write a review but it’s a pricey buffet and I had hoped for better. Thank goodness it was my birthday month so I had a food voucher. The dessert options were the best of the meal, my guests agreed also. I hope this review helps to better the buffet for success. Thank you 😊

    My second visit I started with Calamari Misto. This was rings and tentacles deep fried with a few artichoke hearts and pepperoncinis mixed in, served with tartar and marinara for dipping. An interesting combo, the batter was fairly light in texture but was quite salty. I then had the Seafood Ravioli. A great presentation on a rectangular plate, half-moon shaped raviolis lined up in a row. Although a delicious dish, unfortunately there was not much seafood, and its flavor was greatly overpowered by the sauce and cheese. I enjoyed both dishes, but they didn't quite meet my expectations; I'm not likely to order either again. The service from William once again was impeccable.

    Hosts were nice. Our server was terrible. Couldn't get service or attention. After 1 hour of waiting for food and speaking up our food order was lost. Couldn't even get bread at our table. The only saving grace was the Manager Gabby. She made js feel like someone cared about our experience there. Took the food home to eat and it wasn't impressive at all. Especially for the price. Bland. Yall never heard of garlic? And the fact an Italian Restaurant doesn't have Italian salad dressing is beyond me. Server said they only had ceaser everything else was not allowed.

    Dinner on a Friday night. We chose inside seating due to the hot weather, but they do have an outdoor patio which would be great on cooler nights. Chicken Marsala was good, Jumbo Prawns with fettucine--excellent! Wait staff very attentive. Our only issue was a pesky fly that kept buzzing our table. Will definitely eat there again.
