Nice little place

This place is hidden away and I would have never known it existed if it wasn't for a friend telling me about it. It is a very small restaurant with a nice atmosphere. Probably a good date place. The service is excellent. I ordered lasagna which comes with soup or salad, I had salad and it also... read more

This was our 2nd visit, since they moved (some time ago), from Colorado Ave. Small, homey, with 12 tables. SO, they can fill up fast. In the older part of "Eastlake". With no GPS, get good directions. Good parking. We first tried them on the advise of a 'fan'. Found the Pasta, to be excellent. Menu selections are ample. My... More

It was 3:30PM on Friday 10/17/14, we were the only customers there and one waitress to handle 2 people. There was a table behind us that still had dirty dishes and trash on the floor. This never got cleared during our entire visit. Never an excuse for not clearing tables or floor! The table bread was so-so, nothing you would... More

We love this local family restaurant. You need to get there early because it is small and fills up fast. The homemade spaghetti noddles are great and the sausage has a nice kick. The staff is friendly and quick to serve.

Visited Papa Mazzotti's last night at around 7:30. Very small dining room that was full; had a 12 minute wait. Decor was OK (I don't go out to eat for the decor). Our waitress was quick but curt. Drinks were served in large plastic Coke glasses - good size - with lots of ice. The salad that came with our... More

Love they have more than just the standard marinara sauce. Wish they had a bigger place, because they always have so much business. Always worth the wait.

Our family loves this little restaurant and has been going for many years. The new building looks great, and has a family atmosphere. The sausage is my favorite. Because it is small it can fill up fast, but is worth the wait. We have always had large portions and friendly service.
