Pleasant surprise

Who knew such an unassuming restaurant could produce such tasty food. Everything was very good. Even my Italian husband, who only liked his moms cooking, was impressed by the veal Parmesan. I was pleased they have such a large gluten free menu, including pasta, bread and cheesecake. Yes...the decor... read more

Before heading to The Sharon in The Villages to hear Michael Bolton for my husband's birthday, we found ourselves at this little restaurant we have passed many times, intending to try some day. We were seated and served quickly by a pleasant young lady who cheerfully answered our questions and delivered 'off the charts' fresh bread, simple but crisp and... More

My husband loves lasagna, and he walked out of this restaurant saying, "that was the best lasagna I have ever had." He continues to say that! Wonderful place for local folks and visitors as well. Lots of regulars. LOTS of regulars. Good, old-fashioned restaurant with relatively few tables, sweet and polite local teenage girls as the servers, the owner watching... More

Been wanting to go there every time we pass by and see how long they've been in business. I figured it must be good. Wrong! 1st thing you notice is it has t been updated since ey opened. Which I overlooked thinking as long as it's good, who cares. We both had the Italian Wedding soup it was ok. Hubby... More

I see from your review that you were treated with utmost respect and courtesy from our attentive staff. Sadly that respect was not reciprocated. Common courtesy would have been to bring our attention to any dissatisfaction and allow us the opportunity to correct the problem rather than blindsiding us on social media . We have worked incredibly hard for three... More

We used to go to Mom & Dads years ago before we moved out of state. Their meatballs are soooooooooooo scrumptious! We'll be in Lady Lake for the first time in 17 years this Sept and cannot wait to stop in!

Our large family group has been going here since the late 70's and we have noticed some ups and downs in the food quality but they seem to have raised their standards and the food was delicious.

Sorry, but we came here for spaghetti and the sauce was the worst we ever tasted. We both vowed to never return. Friends say they have a good steak, but don't think I'll try that.

I have been to this restaurant three times with various friends. Each time was a disappointment. My first disappointment was the filthy restroom, which always makes me wonder how clean the kitchen might be. The entire restaurant needs an facelift and a good scrubbing, including the sticky menus. The food is just average at best. Sauce tasted like Ragu out... More
