Just walking into this restaurant reminds me of going into my own Grandmothers house. The smells are memorable. The food is very good. Meatballs like home. Pizza very good

An excellent place to go with family. The best pasta! The salad is wonderful and the soup is perfect. The eggplant is to die for. To top it off, service is excellent and price is very affordable.

This place has the best pizza (they use wheat dough upon request) anywhere. Fantastic pizza and unbelievable Calzones. The ingredients are so so fresh and the service is outstanding! A must visit restaurant!

We live near this restaurant, but had not been there in years. We’re glad we returned. The menu is lengthy, the food good, the waitstaff friendly and attentive, and the price is right. We will be going back often.
