Currently closed. Owner is in his 80's and is sick... Restaurant is closed until further notice... Hopefully he gets better as this is a great place to get a great meal...

I went to this restaurant when visiting Utica, after reading reviews here. Everything we had was great - Chicken Riggies, the Italian Platter, and Manicotti. Service was very good, and friendly. Portions are large!

The place doesn't look like much from the outside as it is in an old (dumpy) neighborhood. Stepping though the front door is like stepping back into 1962. The food is FABULOUS and the portion sizes are huge, definitely plan on a box to go home. The sauce is just like grandma's - homemade & yummy. The prices are so... More

Not a fancy place, but the food is fantastic. The portions are very generous and the prices are very reasonable. Stop in and say hi to Nick.

The restaurant has generous portions of delicious Italian food. The Italian platter really could serve 3; the prices are right as is the atmosphere.

Always very friendly and very good. Amazing selection of homemade dishes served piping hot and in abundance. My wife and I have been going there for many years and recommend this to all our friends. Its not in the best of neighborhoods but we've never experienced or heard about trouble, and they have a private parking lot.

Still the same great food & prices I remember from when we had a standing order every Sat. night when they were on James St. They even make up my fav Italian dressing for me to take back home ! Vintage Italian restaurant & a Utica treasure !! Visit whenever I am in town.
