My husband and I have eaten here several times and the food is pretty good. Had shrimp diavalo which is spicy. You get a generous portion. Subs are good too.

Nice little casual Italian dining place with great food. The place is not huge..there are mostly booths and it is located in the middle of a strip mall. They have great calzones...I especially love their spinach calzone. They have great cream of crab soup, delicious chicken Chesapeake and my husband loves their sausage & peppers.

We used to live right down the street and it used to be our Friday night place to go. Portions are enough for two meals and very reasonable. The garlic knots are to die for!!

This is definitely our go to restaurant when we want a good italian meal. The Chicken Chesapeake dinner is to die for and if you go on Satuday it's onlt $12.99!! Regular price is $19.99 but for what you get it's definitely worth it. 2 plump chicken breasts, shrimp and lump crab meat with a sauce that leaves you wanting... More
