Went here for a quick dinner based on a friend's recommendation. Arrived a little after 5pm and got seated right away. That being said the dining area is tiny. We got a decent table but a couple that came in shortly after us was tucked back behind a party of 4 and it was obviously awkward for them. Our waitress... More

A neighborhood Italian restaurant with a reasonable menu of apps, sandwiches, pasta and pizza. What is lost on ambiance is made up for by their portion sizes and very reasonable cost. Food is quite tasty! Note dishes that have Italian sausage are a bit spicy.

This is a cozy Italian restaurant just north of Des Moines and south of Ankeny. It has a warm ambiance inside and a pleasant patio outside. It serves what you would expect of a small Italian restaurant. My favorites are the pizza and the cavatelli. If you are light eaters, they are more than happy to split your meal at... More

My husband and I decided to try Sonny's for something other than pizza. We have had their pizza in the past and enjoyed it. We ordered something else from the menu. I had the shrimp with red pepper pasta sauce My husband ordered the pepper steak. The service wasn't up to pare. I feel for $17.50 our dishes should include... More

Nice neighborhood restaurant that is not the easiest to find. We like the pizza with decent thin crust and better than average sauce, but our favorites are the sandwiches. I go for the Sicilian most every time. Almost reminds of a Gizzmo from the fair. Servers are always friendly and efficient. Fridays are sometime tough to get a table, but... More

Pizza Night Review: We had driven past the place several times and the lot always looked busy. And when we stopped in on a Friday Night, we had a small wait for the table, but only a few minutes. The staff was first rate. The pizza had the right mix of sauce, toppings and cheese. The wait time for the... More

I have heard from numerous people that the pizza here is really good, but my husband and I have never made it past their pasta. We both love a good cavatelli and the one they have here is great, but we've discovered how to make it even better. I ordered what they call the Chef's Pasta on my first visit... More

Many of us from work eat here semi-regularly for lunch. I've also eaten here for dinner several times with my wife. The food is usually excellent. The sandwiches and pizza are personal favorites. There is tremendous value in getting the salad / pizza lunch combo. Here you will find a small, but attentive staff. The patio is nice if you... More
