Good food

I had the lasagna. It was ok. I thought it wasn't seasoned as well as it could have been but my date loved it. He also liked his chicken Alfredo. The rolls are absolutely delicious when they are warm. My lasagna was a huge portion for the price. The service was good too.

food is good, although kind of rich. Lots of tomato sauce. Atmosphere fine inside, although the strip mall it is located in does not strike you as the place to find a nice restaurant. Service is very good, smallish inside but adequate.

We have been going here for years and yes there have been off nights for both food and service but all in all it works. Last night it was packed with many large groups, we had reservations for 7pm and were seated about 15 min later. The service was very good considering the crush of orders they were dealing with....

This used to be our very favorite restaurant. The sheer rudeness of the owner has ruined the restaurant for us. Still sad about it.

My husband and I ate here about five years ago while in the area visiting family and we had a very good experience. Unfortunately, this time was a serious disappointment. The place has a wonderful, authentic atmosphere -- Tony Soprano would feel right at home here -- a welcome departure from the soulless corporate theme restaurants that seem to predominate... More

All the entrees were quite tasty, but the vegetarian minestrone was especially good. In addition to attentive service, the atmosphere was quite welcoming and homey. Highly recommended.

Excellent food and service for a party of 8. A true Italian restaurant. Pasta, Seafood, Veal, Chicken and Steak choices. A full bar and a great selection of wines.

Average is how I would rate the food here. Here’s why. My wife had the chicken picante. One of the two pieces was undercooked, although the piece she did eat was flavorful. I had the manicotti, which tasted like overcooked pasta with wallpaper paste. I mean there was no, and I mean no, seasoning. I’m not sure what they used... More
