Good food in Arvada

They relocated to a bigger place near our house. Very good food. The owner came by and played some music for us. Very nice staff.

July 1, 2014. First time there. Heard great things about the spaghetti. 1970's vinal booth seats are old ripped and uncomfortable.

For take out: The salad was just "okay", nothing special about it. The bread was below average. Something you could buy off the rack at king soopers, but.....the spaghetti.....the homemade spaghetti.....as soooooo good. Best I've had. The meatball, the sauce, the noodles, everything about it was just awesome. AWESOME

This family owned place in business for over 40 years, has authentic S. Italian home cooking. The eggplant parmesean is to die for, along with giant calzones, super veal parmesean, & all the old favorites. Good value, excellent service, & good atmosphere. Great for families and date night.

The lunch buffet was outstanding, both in taste and value. I will return next time I want to experience such a great Italian lunch.
