Very Good Except the Meatballs are Poor

The meatballs are large but have way too much bread crumbs. As s result they are mushy. The Italian sausage should have more spice. But other dishes such as The Kitchen Sink and pasta with Vodka sauce are exceptional. Portions are obscenely large. They are more than 3 can eat.

I've always loved the food here, both at the old location and the new one. Top notch Italian family style that folks in the area rave about. Always best to come with at least 4 or more hungry people. For 5 people, if you order more than 2 or 3 entrees, you will all be going home with plenty of... More

This was our first time going to this restaurant and what a great experience it was. My husband and I went with our 2 kids and future son-in-law and from the service to the appetizers to the entrees to the dessert- all was delicious and the quality and quantity was remarkable. U need a reservation for a larger party so... More

Large portions, delicious food. Warm and friendly atmosphere, wait staff that act as they should. Moderate prices and a great selection. What's not to like, I'll be going back there on my next trip to Ballston Spa.

This place will please just about anyone's taste and you will not have room for dessert! Everything on the menu is delish. If you have the room the desserts are really amazing. The service is great and if you are luck enough to be there for your birthday they have quite a nice surprise for you. Make reservations because this... More

We always seem to order enough for two more settings,so try to understand this when you go. But,again we ordered calamari that was just average and a house salad. You also get some wonderful italian bread. Tonight we had penne ala vodka with prosciutto that was outstanding. We also enjoyed a special of sliced sirloin with mashed potatoes and some... More

The portions are huge! That's fine if you normally eat 32 oz steaks or 2 pounds of pasta but most of us would need a quart of Alka Seltzer if we could finish an entree in one sitting. Having told us of the huge portions, our friends still each ordered an appetizer and entree as we watched in disbelief. There... More

This was for a catering order for 20+ that we had placed ahead of time. Numerous dishes.....plenty of food.....we probably could have done with 1/3 less. Food was hot and ready to go. Tasty family style Italian.
