A great place to stop on the way home from work.All the food is made on premises. Young couple that owns it are always congenial. They have a terrific selection of Italian foods and dessert.

We frequently have catered breakfasts from here. Food is always decent. Some people don't like the consistency of the eggs but many people like them. Many people were confused over the breads under the bacon (to soak up any grease) so it may be helpful...More

I have eaten here many times, when you get inside you can breath italian air. Food is excellent and also the workers are the best you can ask for. Everyone should try their panini and all the dishes they make!

I come here often for lunch and I am always happy with what I get. The sandwiches and salads that I've tried have all been delicious. I definitely recommend the Pesto Chicken Salad. The atmosphere is a little unappealing but it's your typical family owned...More
