This is not elegant dining--it is in the old McDonald's location in town--but the Italian food is good. They also have specials and on occasion I have had twin lobsters here. Also rack of lamb which was very good. And their shrimp scampi is excellent. My husband loves the Tour of Italy entree with their sausages and huge meatballs. We... More

This is a pleasant family, Italian restaurant located in a former McDonalds. Although the décor is subdued, food and service are both good and portions were large on our last experience with this restaurant. (Be careful how much you order until you see portion sizes.) The menu has a nice variety of Italian dishes, including traditional dishes, pizza, and calzones.... More

Stopped in for lunch, and was not expecting anything special due to it being in a strip mall, but we were in for a treat. The interior of the restaurant is nicely decorated, the waitress was very friendly and we couldn't get over the food. First the food was reasonably priced and all our meals were very fresh. The food... More

Although this is the first time I visited this restaurant, it will not be the last. Many varieties of real Italian food are served in large portion sizes. The spaghetti sauce is especially tasty as are the meatballs and sausage. Many locals eat here and the restaurant gets crowded so I suggest you get there early.

The food her is excellent especially the pizza. But save yourself some money and split the entree it's way too much food for one person (and I can eat)

I visited today with some family for Mother's Day. I have been previously, and the food was still as nice as I remember, particularly the pizza. Our waitress was really nice, however another waitress was clearing our plates and wrapping food up right at our table, while other people in our group were still eating. Otherwise, it was a nice...

Michael and staff always do a great job whenever we go there, which is quite frequently. Food is reasonably priced and there are extremely generous portions. Staff is always friendly! Salad and garlic bread are amazing here, especially with the house creamy Italian dressing. Top notch all around!

I've eaten here many times, in the restaurant and take out. Again, a poor example of a good restaurant going down hill. I was very disappointed when I ordered a meal & received the knuckles of the chicken, which I usually cut out before cooking/serving. When I called to complain they did not seem to care - not going back...

Average Italian style food with a very nice house salad and garlic bread. My pasta dish just didn't WOW with tired vegetables and too much oil. Our server made the night a success with his great personality and attention to detail.
