Delicious

What a delightful lunch we had. Service, portions and taste were excellent. Wish it was open later in the evening for late night diners.

The portions are huge, so it might be good to share. The salad had a bit too much dressing, but overall we were happy. It is crowded and noisy, so be prepared!

Great place in the middle of nowhere ( well, few minutes from the airport). I was not expecting a great place like this around here. The food was great. Lots of choices and plenty of dishes home made that day. This is like a Panera Bread style, you order, and then you come back to the front to pick up... More

It's in a little strip mall but there is big Italian flavor. When you walk in , there is a line for ordering. The tables are like a cafeteria and the noise level is high but that's because there are so many customers. We were hard pressed to find a table! You order your food, pay for it and then... More

I chose this place based on it being the #1 restaurant on Trip Advisor for Hanover, MD. I had the Mussels Marinara, Saltimbocca and a Sam Adams. Absolutely tasty and a perfect way to end the day. I will be back. Oh. Yes.

We went here on a trip to the Baltimore/DC area and are so glad we did. We got a Sicilian-style, 5-topping pizza and it was incredible. We'd never had this style of pizza before, but loved it - pillowy dough with a light layer of sauce and toppings, cooked perfectly. It's also huge, easily enough food for two hungry adults... More

Very close to the airport. We got our food fast I had farfalle mona lisa and it was pretty good. The lunch portion was plenty of food and it came with garlic bread. Chipotle style ordering and casual atmosphere it was good for getting in and out quickly. If you want Italian fast I recommend.

I was planning a birthday party for my husban. I had the pleasure of having a taste testing of dishes before I made my final purchase. The food here is great and inexpensive.

A little off the main drag in a nondescript strip center...this Italian eatery really delivers with taste and variety. Excellent pastas and first rate pizzas and subs compete for your attention. Killer lunch buffet is hard to beat for flavor and value. Best around the area...beating the big chains for value and taste!
