Traditional Italian served at the First and Last since 1936, and they have it right! Quality food, modest prices, and excellent service in a family friendly environment. Personally, I am a sucker for the Stuffed Artichoke and Carbonara!

Very large menu; easy to find something that works for everybody. Did not have the pizza but the ones I saw looked great. Our party all had pasta dishes that were wonderful. Nice area for outside dining. Service was top notch. Reasonably priced.

Delicious food. Appetizers, drinks, entrees and pizza are all excellent. Easy to find items even if you have dietary restrictions. I didn't have any dessert so I can't say but I imagine it's also very good. The ambiance is rustic , warm and cozy. Our...More
