This is a hidden gem of a restaurant I've ever been to - ever! From the outside it's not much to look at. But looks are definitely deceiving in this case! It was the best Italian food I've had in my life (granted, I've never...More

The side house salad was large, fresh and cold. Very nice. The entree was good as well and bread sticks were served with the meal. I got the tiramasu for dessert which was very good. The waitress was very attentive. I will return for some...More

Have eaten here many times. Love the bread before your meal. Recommend the spinach pizza. Calzones are also very good. One of the best places in this small town.

The place looks like a dive from the outside, but the food was really good. I asked for recommendations and chose one of those, something out of the normal Italian fair, and it was excellent. My husband is not a big Italian food person, but...More

My husband had the manicotti without spaghetti and I had baked spaghetti with meat sauce. Both were absolutely delicious as well as the breadsticks. If you're in the mood for something sweet, get the Godiva chocolate cheesecake. OMG! We will definitely be back if we're...More

Great food, sizable portions, nice staff. Been there many times, never disappointed. Big fan of their Calzones. They are so big you'll take half of it home. Good choice if you want to share one order.

Having visited this location several times, I have to say that I am consistently underwhelmed. While staff are friendly and helpful, service is slow and servers (or, perhaps, the kitchen) often get orders wrong. The wait to be seated usually isn't long, but once seated,...More
