Went there for dinner one night because it was close to my hotel. Ordered chicken parmesan which came with spaghetti, and the spaghetti sauce tasted like it had a couple of sugar in it. This is average Italian food at best

They have the most amazing broasted chicken in the area. The mashed potatoes are real potatoes!! Their pasta and pizza is authentic Italian! Suggest the lunch buffet for a wide variety of food, great price!

Everyone can find something they like to eat here and if you leave hungry it's your fault. I hate having to wait very long for a table and we usually have to wait a short time for a table but not too long. I love their chicken and my husband loves their pastas. It's a great place to have a... More

Great place to have a good home style dinner.. Lots of good food here, but you have to try the fried chicken dinner. Light and crispy makes this bird stand out. Friendly service is the rule. Great pies too. so try it , you'll like it.

We had a wonderful dinner for 2 for $28. My husband had an all white half fried chicken dinner. It was crispy, but light, and perfectly seasoned. It came with a large side salad, cup of delicious clam chowder, and baked potato. I had a large plate of perfect ravioli with meat sauce. It came with a large side salad.... More

The waitress was very good and suggested good items. Obviously this was a local type restaurant, which we had asked about. The food was really good and the restaurant had plenty of business. Best fried chicken we have had in a long time. The portions were good and not too big, and the price was very fair. Would go to... More

This is THE place for good tasty fried chicken or pasta on the "East side" of St' Louis. And at reasonable prices. And the pies!!! And carryout, and large "catering" size pans for parties. It's all good.

We've eaten here a few times when visiting. The food is good but it can take a little wait. They have always been busy when we've been there. The salad is good and my husband likes the pizza. I've gotten fried chicken every time and it's good but I seem to remember it as better last time. Mashed potatoes with... More
