The last two visits have not been very good. Two dining with me were not even able to eat their dinner as the meat had a spoiled taste to it. The time before I had a meal very subpar. This was some time ago and have not been back so maybe it is better now

Wife and I chose this place because of the positive reviews. We were not disappointed! Greeted amd seated quickly by friendly hostess. Server was friendly and attentive. In fact, all the servers we saw at the other tables were that way. I got the lasagna and wife got angel hair pasta with meat sauce. Very good taste and came out... More

At number 2 /81 rank we were very disappointed. Ordered garlic knots which were stale and cold. We asked the waitress for recommendations and she was unable to provide an answer. When asked what customers tend to order the most she didn't know. I ordered the sausage ravioli special and it came with a basic toss salad. I enjoyed the... More

The restaurant could use an update in their decor but overall the experience was just fine. I think the best bet here is pizza. My husband enjoyed his....nice fresh ingredients and good medium crust.

After a day of visiting Roanoke College campus our family decided on this restaurant for dinner. We were greeted and shown to our booth. We placed our drink and food orders. The waitstaff was very polite and the food was very good. My only suggestion would be that the super hot plate that comes from the oven be placed on... More

Great gluten free selection! I have Celiac and feel perfectly safe is this Italian restaurant. The owners are from Italy, so of course you are getting old family recipes that are fantastic! They are cautious in preparing gluten free foods too. Great selection, including a variety of gelato for dessert! Right of I-81 too!

Stopped in Salem on our way to Florida. This restaurant was recommended to us at the hotel. Our service was great and the food was even better. Good homemade food and homemade gelato for dessert.
