Great Food.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in the metro east. Food is good time and time again. Rarely do we have a disappointing meal here. My only complaint would be a steep increase in menu prices recently. One of the pasta entrées I used to get was $9.99, then went up to $11.99, and now it is... read more

Prior to leaving Orlando for St Louis I was told numerous things to do while I was here. One of which was have Toasted Ravioli's. When we pulled up to the hotel I noticed a restaurant hidden behind it. It didn't seem like much but then it popped up during a google search of nearby places. We stopped in &... More

It's a favorite in the area by all the locals. Everybody raves about the chicken, but their Italian food is all wonderful. I eat there regularly, and have never found a single dish I did not like. Prices are reasonable as well.

After reading some of the reviews we were a bit nervous about trying this restaurant out. We were even more hesitant when the hostess told us that it would be an hour wait for our party of six. There was nobody else waiting! My brother in law spoke to the hostess pointing this fact out and we were seated in... More

Authentic, genuine Italian cuisine located in a quaint little spot offers convenient menus and matching prices to offer a big bang for your buck. I co-hosted a small party in a neighboring town as I ordered their chicken, tortellini,spaghetti, salads, and breads for just under $50. Magnifique! It was perfect, everyone enjoyed it, and it was very filling. Thank you,... More

There are apparently a large number of people in the area that dine here but I am not one of them. I can honestly say that this was the worst dining experience, due to the food, that I have ever had at a restaurant. They had fried chicken as the special on the day I visited and it was anything...

The broasted chicken is great. And the prices are reasonable. One of our fav's for the chicken. Service is friendly and good.

The food is always plentiful and a variety of items on the menu. Their specialty is a home style fried chicken, with a crunchy skin and lightly spiced. They also have a variety of italian pasta dishes including a delicious lasagna. The wait staff always seems pleasant and helpful. The meals are reasonably priced and usually include bread and salad... More

We had the all you can eat fried chicken, a massive bacon cheeseburger, ravioli, & chicken fried steak at our table. Everything was very good! You've gotta leave room for their wide variety of delicious pies calling your name as you enter this restaurant!

I highly recommend the chicken and their pies are to die for. However, I find it difficult to make myself eat there because the acoustics are pretty bad. I find that carry-out is the best option for me. I used to really enjoy their "King Salad", but they seem to have cut back on the toppings, making it less like... More
