Great! Great! Great!

I was traveling from Arizona with family and we decided we wanted Italian food for dinner. We were driving though Banning Ca. at the time and had no idea where to go. To our surprise we found a great family owned Italian restaurant. Small, understated green building on the outside, but when we... read more

This place was right behind our motel, so we gave it a try for lunch. First, it's a very comfy interior - worn, but in a good way. There are wonderful cooking aromas coming from the kitchen and you definitely got a welcoming feeling. We ordered a split Caesar salad and a pizza. The salad had a traditional anchovy flavor,...

Really good food at a reasonable price. Lunch is a particularly good bargain. "Mama", now in her eighties, comes in early every morning to cook delicious dishes. Not a "fancy" restaurant, and a bit forbidding on the outside, but inside it is homey and comfortable.Small, cosy bar.

We visit whenever we pass thru Banning. The outside is not the most attractive, but when you walk in, you are transported back in time and place to, what I consider, a classic New York Mom & Pop bar & restaurant. The bar space is small, dark & cozy, and smells like bars I knew back East. The dining area... More

This is a true hole in the wall with lovely food and good service. My particular favorite is the senior specials with smaller portions and a complete meal! I always order the Eggplant Parmesean. It's GREAT!

We called for a take away, first time to taste their great food. Nice, fresh dinner salad, warm garlic bread. I had the spaghetti with garlic and oil and my friend ordered the spaghetti with meatballs. The food as perfectly cooked, and still nice and hot when we got home. Servings are very large, leftovers for certain. Highly recommend. This... More

We were in Banning visiting my Daughter and Son-In-Law when we searched out and found this place. I was looking for a place that had Gluten Free options. Found several people mentioned that Guy's had Gluten Free. When we arrived at this fairly small establishment at around 6:30 PM on a Monday night and found the parking lot was very... More

We stayed near by and were able to walk here, which was a big plus! Waitress was friendly, the place was packed. It looks like a little hole in the wall, but really must be the local go to place. We had full meals, and couldn't put a dent in the pasta plates, the cannoli was fresh, crisp and delicious.... More
