Best in DesMoines
Words can not explain how good this place is and the fantastic service !!!!!!! Must try
It was absolutely fabulous lunch today
Special Chicken Masala. Excellent. Each bite a taste sensation.
Totally local, family, Italian. Owned by the same family for over 40 years. Menu is varied from burgers to veal. The chicken spedini is easily the most popular item and should be your first meal at the King. The lunch cheese burger is in the top 5 in the city. Yes, the lunch burger is different than the dinner burger. It has everything to with prep for a very busy lunch crowd. Everything is good, service, wait staff, food, wine selection, cocktails. The wine comes from a family vinyard in Italy. The beer is brewed at another family retesteraunt, Exile. The desserts are also special. Best tiramisu I've had anywhere on Earth (literally). The cannoli are a unique and very special treat. In season, the strawberry short cake is beyond comparison. Please try this very special East side place. You will not be disappointed.
Tonight was our first visit. We were greeted with a friendly smile and immediately felt at ease. Our waitress was very attentive. The food was amazing! Well worth the long drive from northern Iowa. We will definitely be back!!
Love the food here. I have never had a bad meal and I have been coming here for years.
Service is great. Food is very good.
Food was great and so was the service!
You just don't get authentic Italian like this anywhere in the Midwest. Excellent steak!
Great food. One of my favorite places to come back to when in town. It's a staple in the community with delicious Italian food, drinks, and desert. They are fantastic at true customer service. A member of our group wanted hot apple cider, but there was no cider on the menu. The bar made a hot spiced cider drink that was great! That's the type of service and quality that this place has been doing for years.
Oh my goodness....I think I was just in heaven! Hubby and I splurged a bit tonight. Tursi's Latin King. I ordered a Mango Martini...our waiter, who was fabulous, said it won Top prize at one time. I can see why..it was delish! I ordered the Chicken Speidini, their house specialty. Chicken was tender and juicy, I got it with their Amoto sauce...so very good and full of flavor. Vegi's were perfectly crisp tender. My husband got spaghetti with tomato, garlic and basil. Delicious!! Our waiter asked if we wanted dessert...I asked his recommendation...he said the Tiaramisu...oh....my....yum! It was amazing! I wanted to lick the plate it was that good!! Our waiter was spot on with all of his suggestions!
Delicious and great service.
