Excellent food

Lunch was a treat. I had a sausage ravioli dish that was super. Husband had a shrimp salad. They kept the bread coming & our water glasses filled. Definitely would return.

My husband and I went here for dinner after an event we attended at The Fresno State university. We have never been to one before. We ordered Raviolis and spaghetti. It was so good. Their meat sauce is the best I think I have tasted right up there with Bucca de beppo. The soup minastroni was delicious. Even got ice... More

I normally order spaghetti when I go here but this time the lasagna was calling my name. I should have ordered the spaghetti as it is good. My lasagna tasted like left overs as it was mushy inside more like it had been cooked, frozen, thawed and left to sit for quite awhile and then microwaved a couple more times.... More

Excellent food choices either lunch or dinner. There is always something for someone with the many variety of sauces.

This restaurant was suggested by friends. I ordered the spaghetti Vesuvius which has sausage meatballs and chicken. First they brought out the salad and the salad was just iceberg lettuce and nothing else but croutons. Then they brought out the main dish and the meatballs and a sausage and chicken are all cut up so you have no idea how... More

This is one of my favorite places for spaghetti. We had to wait a few minutes before we were seated on a Friday evening. If you never been there.....inside the place is furnished with antiques beds made into seats at the tables (padded) and in the middle there is an old trolley where please also sit and dine. We routinely... More

The food was great and the service was quick despite there being several large groups there at the same time as us.

My wife and I ate lunch at this place last Memorial day weekend. When we arrived, there was no greeter there to welcome us, she was busy talking to another employee. After about 4 minutes, she showed up, and offered us a table (sans apology for us having to wait for her). That wasn't too awful bad, but clearly, there... More
