Nothing to write home about. The calamari was terrible. The pasta dishes were fair. Service was disappointing. Our server wasn't very friendly. We expected more.

We just happened upon this place returning from the dog track. Luckily, it was before 6pm and the list of specials was long, a lot of entrees were 50% off. The pizza was great, as were the pasta dishes. There were 5 of us, and all food was very good.

You must try. Great find on business. Lasagna best I've had. Bread, tiramisu all great. Owner stopped by twice to check on me to make sure all is well.

Bring your appetite. All food is prepared by a long time family owner/operator. Big portions, at a very reasonable price. Not fancy, but very quaint. WE are locals, and just love the food, and the people. Give it a try, you'll be glad you did.

We reserved for 29, our dragon boat team and supporters. We were very impressed by the warm welcome and the efficient service. Not easy to manage 29 different orders and individual bills, but they were pros and always had a smile. The food was very good. Delicious pizza and very tasty pasta. Overall very good value. Many thanks for a... More

It was recommended by an old friend. He and I were able to relax and enjoy a very good meal and a quiet atmosphere to "catch up" on our families and lives. Service was great. Substitutes were made without a hitch.

We've been 3 or 4 times. We do like the early bird specials, can't wait to try the pizza next. My favorite pasta dish is Amorieto. Penne with artichokes, black olives, chicken and more. My hope is to get a waitress next time who is not so forgetful.

This is a very good Italian restaurant with a very good wait staff. There is usual a coupon in the paper for 50% off second meal. We have gone several times and our dinner was always good and plentiful. I would go back again and enjoy a good Italian meal.

This was our first visit and we really enjoyed it we had pizza and some of their special pasta dishes. We were there for the early bird and prices were 50% off. Such a deal! Our waitress, Rebecca was outstanding and we can't wait to return.

Upon entry into the restaurant a hostess barely greeted us (setting a tone that in no way made us feel like she was glad to see us), grabbed two dirty menus and walked toward a table without offering that we follow her. She never suggested we enjoy our evening or that a waiter would be with us soon. As we... More
