We ordered clams oreganata and clams casino both of which were excellent. For main dishes we had Chicken Francese, Veal Parmigan and Ravioli. Everyone enjoyed their meal and we had food to take home which I ate the next day.

Went with large group after not being in Lennys in many years. Things have gone downhill. Red Sauce was overly sweet and the mussels and clams were full of sand. Waitress was OK, but offered nothing for our complaints.

Yes we do reviews, lol, we love their monthly specials during the fall and winter months, this month for november was unlimited ribs. Good, quick service, one server late at night, earned the nick name "double duty" as he tended the bar and was our server, then one night "triple duty" as he brought out the bread sticks up front....

I held a business seminar here the staff was great, the food was good and we'll priced. The penned alarm vodka was outstanding,linguini with clams marinara also excellent. This is an old school neighborhood place. Valet parking at no charge. The only draw back was the cake they served for dessert was lacking compared to the rest of the food.
