Homemade chili, cinnamon squares and by far the best meat pizza to date. I tried a bit of everything to make an... More

What a hidden gem in Horse Cave! I loved my baked spaghetti with meat sauce and cheese and the garlic bread was to die for. My husband enjoyed his super pizza. The service was great, but they do not serve alcohol on Sundays.

We had the chicken Carbonara and the backed Spaghetti. Both were delicious. We also had the salad bar which was fresh and had several good options.

We went for dinner and were greeted by the owner who advised us that if we wanted to order the buffet to tell them what kind of pizza we like so they could make it for us. Pizzas were replenished quickly and there was also spaghetti/marinara sauce and lasagna on the buffet. The salad bar was decent and had more... More

Amazing food, excellent service, and friendly atmosphere! We had a delicious meal of spinach and artichoke dip with fresh baked breadsticks, a calzone with veggies, baked spaghetti with meat sauce and cheese, and cannoli for dessert. Everything was presented nicely, and we cleaned our plates! Turtleini's red sauce perfectly balanced all the flavors in the pasta dish and the calzone...I... More

Had the Hawaiian personal pizza and found it to be filling. A charming pizza place with good food and value. The local flavor was added with the option of Burbon by the glass on the menu. Only in Kentucky!!
