Very disappointed in the quality of the entire meal. The salad is now served in a large bowl and is not anywhere as good as before. Salad Dressing is so so. Appetizers are not freshly made. Bread is bland. The entrees are not the same nor is the quality.Even the dessert menu is changed. Prices are also not as reasonable.... More

In hopes of finding a great standby Italian takeout option for my wife and I, I've tried this restaurant twice. The first time I enjoyed my dinner and found it an overall good value with some minor issues such as shredded cheddar and canned black olives on an Italian salad and just OK bread. My wife and I still enjoyed... More

Good Italian food, great service, fair pricing, large portions, etc. Whether it's DeMarco's (or soon to be Isabella's?) the place is worth finding. Needs better signage on Clark Street - assume that is coming. Reservations might be advised on weekends. We were from out of town, but will seek out this restaurant on our next trip!

I heard this place changed hands, but it seems the same to me, and still great. Our table had several different Italian dishes and we were all very pleased. I especially liked the red sauce and the meatballs. Salad and soup comes with the entrees which I don;'t think was very clear on the menu, but it was.

We've always been a fan of this restaurant, especially for weekend breakfasts. The owner retired recently and so far the food has remained of the same quality. They are now opening for lunch, wish they would serve breakfast every day. The new manager is not as friendly as the past owner but he seems a little unsure of himself, please... More

I had dinner here a few years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. Not fancy but not expensive, either. A good, old-fashioned Italian-American restaurant with LOTS of character, very friendly staff, a huge menu and, yes, even more character. On my first visit, I noticed that the place serves breakfast on the weekend and determined to give it a try. Finally... More

My snapper was cooked to death. I could not even cut it with a knife! I will not go back and do not recommend this restaurant.

We have eaten here for years...food is always tasty...large portions...and served by knowlegable wait staff. The only negative is try not to be seated on the west wall....the tables are too close and seating is tight. Surprise...breakfasts here are spot on!!!!
