Enjoy the lunch specials!

This restaurant is a hidden treasure in Alton located in a former drug store! It is an Italian restaurant with other offerings. The pizza has a thin crust which we enjoy. There are various lunch specials which are all good.

Small thin crust pizzas would be the most popular item but the salad was good once you dug the greens out from under all the creese. I really liked the meatball sub sandwich.

Awesome food, and awesome prices-eggplant parmesan is the best anywhere-even better than the hill in st louis. Prices are very reasonable. Personal pizza 2 toppings, salad and drink-$9-and i usually take some home-chicken parmesan and lasagna awesome-salads are delicious. Hours are not the best-close earlier than most restaurants.

Pleasant ambiance. Noticed a lot if people in there so we popped in. Sandwiches were more bread than meat, salad was okay, toasted ravioli was over-cooked. Service was disappointing, others came in after us and were served before us. It was crowded, so maybe just more people than they are accustomed to serving for lunch.
