I liked the atmosphere so I may eat in next time, but this was take out. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Lasagne was the meatiest I've tried - love the homemade taste, plus fresh baked bread. A good variety on the menu, including a lot of mouth watering pizzas. If you are looking for a great local restaurant, look... More

Went for dinner on Sat. nite. They had a group of about 50 people from a wedding party who were in the process of leaving after dinner. The staff had tables cleaned and ready for us in record time. I had chicken parm, which was excellent. My husband had Portobello ravioli which he said was great. Bread was hot, crusty... More

Food was good, homemade bread excellent. Reasonable prices with lots of options on the menu. The pasta we had was good, with enough for another meal the next day. Service was good, not at all slow as was mentioned in another review.

This restaurant was nothing like I expected. It needs a total makeover inside. My husband and I were seated in a very tight booth. We could just about move around in it. The table was wobbly. We asked the waitress, if she could level it for us, but she was not able to fix it. I saw on the menu... More

I went to the restaurant to try something different. I had never been there, so i thought i would give it a try. I ordered the Linguini with white clam sauce. The bread and salad came first. I was extremely pleased with the authentic, crusty, yet soft bread hot to the table with my salad. The salad was a fair... More

This small restaurant is tucked away in a small strip shopping mall. The food is delicious, All the pasta is hand made each day, as is the bread. I recently had a new dish on the menu- Seafood Risotto. It was so good, I am going back for more. The owner/chef was so concerned how it was received, he came... More

We ordered a large (14") Hawaiian pizza for takeout. Ready in 20 minutes, as promised, hot out of the oven, and delicious. Fair price at $14.75. Thin crust, just the way we like it so you don't fill up on the dough, but spend your calories enjoying the toppings! Will get it again.
