This was our 2nd visit. The staff was very engaging as we waited for our food. The food was hot and fresh. We plan on going back again soon.

My favorite place for Italian. Regular dinners are huge as well as delicious. They currently have 10 meals for $10 that are half the regular dinner size - and I still took some home for later. Yum!

Do not spend your hard earned money at this restaurant. We thought we would try a locally owned restaurant while traveling from out of state but it was a total disappointment. Food was overpriced and fresh from the freezer. Pasta was soggy and low quality overall. Owner could have cared less about our experience and had absolutely no response to... More

I felt like this place had a nice family-style feel to it and let us avoid the big-chain Olive Garden down the road. The food was different from a chain and a nice break from the boring everything-always-looks-and-tastes-the-same. The service was excellent and the wine "selection" (written on a label of an empty bottle) sufficient for this kind of place.... More

I was driving in the Post Rd / I-40 area. I saw their sign and decided to try them with take out. At night, it looked like the hole-in-the-wall kind of place my wife and I love to find. I was pleasantly surprised. THE FOOD: I ordered fettuccine alfredo, and I asked for shrimp added. The pasta was cooked perfectly,... More

Went here on a recommendation and really enjoyed it. The flavors are really great and the history of the restaurant is special. There are pictures on the walls that show it has been around Indianapolis for a long time. I liked the alfredo sauce very well, as well as the house salad, which is a flavorful homemade dressing. Nice ambiance... More

my wife and I joined some friends for dinner at this place on the east side of Indianapolis. The atmosphere was pleasant and we were seated immediately. I ordered the seafood pasta which had mussels, shrimp and crabmeat in a alfredo sauce that I thought was very good. My wife was not impressed, however, with her spaghetti and meatballs. She... More
