THE BEST GNOCCHI EVER!

The rex has many different rooms to appeal to different people. But it has the best ricotta gnocchi I've ever had. I often order the veal gnocchi to go and it is enough for 2 meals for me.

Went for dinner last night my daughter had gnocchi and meatball, my wife had veal parm with gnocchi, and I had the cheese manicotti (so far I haven't found a better one anywhere!). Our dinner was great as always. The only thing that really bothers me about this place is that they don't promote their homemade Italian food, which is... More

My grandma was a chef there for many years back when I was younger and I had remembered it to be amazing. I suggested to my brother his girlfriend my fiancé and a close family friend to go and try it out as I hadn't been in years. Our service was okay nothing to complain about but when I found... More

Its okay inside - the regulars are not my crowd - If you're willing to try, i suggest getting it to go (or just order delivery) - Pizza is excellent especially if you get it 'well done' (isnt as doughy) - Wings are good, quite large. Its a good restaurant if you can get over the location and general population... More

we generally eat in the bar, love the atmosphere! Everything on the menu is good and the beer is cold. Waitresses are very good, a lot of fun!

Having grown up in the area, I frequented the Rex when I was in college. Pizza and wings were the best. Went one night with my family after a long absence. We had vegan pizza and regular pizza and salads. Salads were large, fresh and the dressing was very good. The waitress asked for feedback because that salad was a... More

The place used to be great until a few years ago. Now it's like the owner doesn't care anymore. Dingy-looking room, food gone downhill. The slow service is by no means the waitress's fault, they can't bring what isn't ready.
