About the place to be

At the Place To Be, we serve only home-made food. From our signature soups to our decadent desserts, our City Style Bistro offers a unique blend of new-age and traditional cuisines. Whether you simply stop in for a few drinks, an appetizer, or join us for a full meal, we are sure you will enjoy your time with us - and love the food.

Family owned and operated by father, Gino, and chef son, Vinny, the Place To Be opened it's doors for business on July 1, 2009. After completing culinary school in Pennsylvania, Vinny was a chef in Philadelphia for 10 years before making the leap into business with his father.

"SO glad to have found this gem of a place! We always stop here when we're in Havasu and if you are at all a foodie I know you will enjoy it too!"

Carla E. - Casper, WY

"Havasu's hidden winner.  If u haven't come here, then change your plans and make this place dinner or lunch today...."
