We went here for soft ice cream. It is expensive $4. for a small cone. But it is not about that. You drive up turn your lights on and the car hop arrives and takes your order. The ice cream is real ice milk and they have trays that go on your window. This is not a fast food 2016... More

A nice view with a solid menu. This is a family run restaurant reminds me of dining in off the beat in Rome or Milan. The spaghetti e polpette (meat balls) was and is great ... and so's the Toscano rosso.

We ate here as we were staying in the hotel next door. We had starters and main courses and both were very disappointing. It was poorly presented and tasteless.

Similar to other reviews, the decor is outdated- but almost to the point that it's kind of neat. The menu though is unfortunately also very outdated. I had lasagna which was good but nothing special. Throughout my visit there were 2 servers- one helped me between long visits sitting at a nearby table with people loudly discussing local politics, which... More

Food was Great, Atmosphere was like stepping back into the 60's. The staff was good, but I bet they have all been there since the opening. A little older crowd as well as staff. But the food was great, reasonably priced and served promptly. As I was in a hurry to catch the ferry that was important to me. Being... More

Food was delicious! I obviously entered the wrong way and caught the poor boy off guard in the kitchen. However he was hilarious, cute little guy and funny. They made wicked burger full of flavor and so affordable. Next visit was good but I ate in.... Musty and old I must admit BUT sweet waitresses and a nice view and... More

This restaurant, I believe is family owned, and the people are extremely friendly and pleasant. The atmosphere is very very dated- plastic flowers on tables, hard uncomfortable chairs, vinyl booths, etc. It is dark, but they have a great view. The food was very bland. Despite homemade pasta, there was no flavor. No garlic any where in any dish or... More

Run down inside - dinner came out way too fast (if it was cooked fresh, it clearly should have taken longer) and full of grease. I found a hair in my spaghetti. Wouldn't eat here again.

Great ribs, steaks and pasta menu. Location is good - across from the local Walmart mall on the water side of town. Close to the hotel I stayed in as well as noticing 4 or 5 other hotels in the vicinity.
