This restaurant was recommended to us by the desk clerk at the Slumber Lodge and we are glad he did. It was Pasta Monday and the food was great and soooooooo reasonable. Waitress was very friendly, food was fast, good and there was plenty of it. I would recommend it. If you are going on Pasta Monday go early............

We ordered take-out but when we arrived it was clear this was a very popular restaurant. Very busy and a nice atmosphere. Food was good and portions were large.

After reading good rviews and getting recommendations from friends, we were looking forward to a delicious pasta meal. We ordered simple items such as lasagna and spaghetti and meat sauce. What we got was noodles tossed in a watery tomato sauce! Barely any flavor, little sauce and no cheese. As for the spaghetti, it was served blended with the meat... More

It's a pasta place, but the flavors are a cut above competitors. Built my own spaghetti with meatballs, bolognese meat sauce, mushrooms, sundried tomatoes and linquine. Standard tasting caesar salad, good bread with hard crust, house red wine is fine. A notch up in flavors, more garlic, more meat flavors, the meatballs were very good! Others had chicken and steak...

After having this restaurant recommended by locals, we thought we would give it try. I ordered the Roberto chicken with a side of tortellini. Nothing difficult in my meal or the others in our party. After a very long wait we were told the kitchen was backed up and sorry for the wait. Nothing too serious as that happens. What... More

Great food and lots of it. Definitely go hungry even the half portions are huge. Monday is Pasta Special night with half prices or drink special. Seem to have something different every night. I had the Sicilian Penne and my wife customized a Chicken Pesto with linguini. Both had lots of meat and great sauces that tasted great. You can... More

We were tired and hungry from a long day of travel. It was busy but friendly staff looked after us. Great food and value with quality daily specials.

Great for $7 pasta on Mondays, but book reservations or you will be waiting a while. Nothing special food wise, but good eats and attentive service.

A solid 3.5. Much more than just pasta here. The food was better than average. Wait staff was pretty good. Had a nice chat with our waitress and she was quite pleasant. Lots of drinks to choose from as well. I would recommend this place for sure, but don't expect gourmet food and you shouldn't be disappointed.
