It's a great place to take friends, family, large groups or even a nice one on one date with that special someone. Another East County staple, mom and pop operation that's been around for decades.

Dinner for family of four was $70 and worth ever penny! Best lasagna & eggplant parm we've ever eaten. Large portions...2 of us had lunch the next day! My 11 & 15 yr old could have easily shared a entree. Service was good too.

We sat outside and enjoyed a cold beer with an amazing pizza. Service was very good. A lady at a nearby table had a salad that look wonderful. I am looking forward to going back!

I've driven by this place probably a million times and never dropped in. Finally ate here a couple nights ago with family and it was really good. We got a pizza, a large Greek salad, and pasta with meat sauce and they didn't skimp on anything. The salad was stacked about a foot high, pizza had loads of toppings, pasta... More

I was annoyed with patrons (who had doggie bags in hand ) lounging around while the waiting area was packed. The staff didn't want to rush the customers who had been finished for 20 minutes. My complaint is not with the restaurant but with the lack of courtesy on the part of fellow diners. The food was definitely worth the... More
