This is not Italian Food

eh' It's a small town version of Americanized "Italian" food. I hate even calling it Italian food at all. I don't even consider Olive Garden Italian food, and Sammios is not as good as Olive Garden. Now, if it was considered "American" food, than I think I would rate it better. The service is also... read more

Of course it's incredibly disappointing to read this review -- we certainly hoped to leave you with a better impression. We always appreciate feedback, whether it's positive or negative, but comparing our place to others in town isn't especially constructive. You're right that we're a small town restaurant that serves our own takes on Italian classics, but we care a... More

The food was plain and no taste. Took forever to get the food. The drinks from the bar was very weak. The waitress was pleasant

I have driven by this place a bunch when in town and finally decided to stop in and try it. When I arrived, it took about 5 mins. before someone came by to seat me. That was probably the first sign that I should have turned around and left. After being seated, the waitress was pretty quick to get me... More

Love the chef salad and variety on the menu. Some distance off I 95 but convenient for Hope Mills residents. Also have location in Fayetteville.

As you may know if you eat here while traveling, there is not many choices. The food itself was good and the service was also good. We had chicken salad, which was enough to fill you up and not feel bloated. The staff was very friendly and it appeared to be a "local" place to eat.

Glad you enjoyed your chicken salad and the friendly service, Bernard, but sorry to see that our place still just left a so-so impression overall. We'd love to know what we could do even better next time to earn some additional stars in your book! Hope we're able to serve you another great meal during your travels. Take care, Louis... More

Dined there on July 3rd and while the service was good, the food was just ok. We were pretty hungry when we arrive, had been flying and driving all day. I was disappointed in the lasagna. It wasn't bad enough to send back, but it definitely was not authentic Italian food. They had no beer selection to speak of either.... More

Came here with a friend, for dinner, ordered the chicken parm, omg it was delish!! Can't say much about the rude young lady on the cash out counter though. Someone needs to send her to a customer service training. But the meal was outstanding.

It tastes like they opened a can of ragu sauce and dumped it on my chicken Parmesan. Definitely a place for smokers with lost taste buds to eat. They were playing some Indian music not even Italian. The place smelled of cigarette smoke. Our waitress smelled of cigarette smoke too. She never refilled our drinks the whole visit. The food... More

We are partial to Italian anyway, but the good food here could convert anyone. Lots of servers, usually quick seating. Appetizers, salads, and entres all plentiful. It is loud because it is always packed, but with high back booths, you can still hear your party's conversations. Parking is plentiful, but on busiest occasions, you may have to circle twice.
