Simple but fantastic

My wife and I have eaten here for years, they moved twice in twenty years. The garlic rolls are to die for, portions are quite large, if you have a couple apps you may split a special. Pasta, pizza, all is well.

It was just ok, average Restraurant very noisy. Small and tables are very close together. Minimum parking. Congestive area in McDonough.

My dad, my daughter and I are spending one night in town. We read some of the other reviews on here and looked at the menu and couldn't get there fast enough! The place is pretty small but totally packs a punch. I could have eaten all day I think. I got the veal Marsala. My dad got the grilled... More

We dine here every couple of months and are always impressed with the consistent quality of the food. Seafood dishes are amazing and the Italian dishes are very authentic. Good service, nice people!

Small restaurant in McDonough that has approximately 15 table tops. Very good food and good service. A little noisy because of the size but food makes up for noise level.

Amazing little Italian Restaurant. The mussels are made with real garlic and the rolls are too......dripping with olive oil and garlic. The pasta was sooo good but can't give it a full 5 points because my cousin ordered the chicken Alfredo and that wasn't the best. Everybody else's meal was excellent.........great food with great ambiance!

This food is good if your frame of reference for Italian food is Olive Garden or Ragu. It's obviously well loved, because the place was packed with a steady stream of take out orders as with well as people waiting for tables. The dressing on the house salad was sweet. The rolls did not appear to be baked in house... More

Had dinner there with my wife and a friend from McDonough Georgia. We each had a different dish and all were outstanding. Service was excellent food came out fast and prices were reasonable. Try the lasagne it was great.

We have been here twice so far and will continue to go back. The pasta is wonderful and the veal marsala is to die for. This place also has the best garlic knots. By far, my favorite Italian Restaurant.
