We spent a lovely evening with our cousins at that place thanks to a very friendly and efficient waiter. The food was great, the portions huge and the atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. A great place for a meal with friends or family. We'll come back for sure !

I grew up with a bunch of Italians from northern Italy. Their food was incredible and so when I go to Italian restaurants, I have to use what I grew up with as the standard bearer. (My perception of good Italian food were confirmed during my trips to Italy itself). In the U.S. we got tons of people with Italian... More

With a name like Spaghetti Western, we didn't expect much from this restaurant, but as we were guests, we let our friends pick and they had been meaning to visit here. We went to the one near Ella and T.C. Jester, but the menu is the same as the one of Shepherd. As you might expect, they have spaghetti, but... More

I have promised to take my wife here for a while after a few solo trips, and I finally got around to it! I am glad I brought her because she thoroughly enjoyed it! It was way too much food for the both of us and it didn't help that we crushed the excellent garlic bread sticks before the food... More

Joined a big group of people for dinner. We were more than 40 people, and serving us took some time, but not as much as expected. Ordered a Caeser salad with grilled chicken. It looked good and tasted good. Had a glass of house red, which was very pleasant, slightly on the sweet side. Everybody around me seemed very happy... More

Had the pepperoni pizza. Truly hand made. Pretty good. Ordered a to go and it came out very quick. Too quick, was cold by the time I got it home. Little pricey for what you get.

This is my family's favorite restaurant for Italian food. Truthfully, a "real" Italian might not find it authentic. But if you want fresh-made pizza and pasta with lots of cheesy goodness, this is the place. My son always goes for the spaghetti bolognese. My daughter loves "the bad" pizza. My wife and I either share the pizza or a calzone.... More

We go here for lunch once a week and love most everything but the lasagne tops the list. It's enough for two and comes with the most delicious soft bread sticks in town. The house salad is also great along with the lunch pizza. However, the crust is different at night and not my favorite.
