Finest Italian Food

I am an Italian food perfectionist. I love anything pasta. The plates are large and the food covers them. The wait staff are very friendly and they do serve alcoholic beverages. So, if you can't find something on the menu to satisfy your taste buds, then you're in the wrong place.

We went there for our date night and weren't disappointed! There is not a bad dish and we are definitely coming back again

Great food, to either eat in or take out. Small, cozy atmosphere. Since the seating is limited you may have to wait but well worth the wait!

Freshly made pasta and homemade sauce. Great garlic rolls. Small and intimate. The food can compare to the best restaurants in Atlanta and a fraction on the price. In the metro Atlanta area, easily a top five Italian restaurant.

I wish this restaurant would be open more often. The food is great and the garlic balls themselves is worth going there

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

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.

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!

Been eating here for more years than I can count (have followed Chef Doug from one location to another). Hubby and I have never, ever had a bad meal!
