We visit this restaurant each time we are in the area. Friendly wait staff and good pizza and pasta. The prices are reasonable and the service is quick. We look forward to returning during our next visit to the area.

I have been coming here for years and can't stay away. I couldn't believe it the first time someone recommended I try this place. It's in a modest structure near a country crossroads away from the more populated parts of the area and it's name is a bit unusual---just the Italian Restaurant. But I was sold on it from the...

This place was a little disorganized at first but with 3 waitresses and 30% occupied tables we managed to get our food fast. Two 16" pizzas with one topping and ice water went for $37 - to me this is over priced and the quality/taste of the food was average. There's better pizza with a lower price out there in... More

There are not many options for restaurants out there and we were really hungry! I paid $13 for 5 raviolis swimming in sauce, it seemed like it had been warmed up in a microwave. I felt that was pretty expensive, but you are way up in the mountains, food tends to be more expensive up there. If we were up... More

Pizza and salads are great. The atmosphere needs to be updated. Good place to eat a bit overpriced. Clean the windows and throw out the nasty candles in the windows.

Our family has eaten here several times over the past few years. Tonight we ordered the chicken parmigiana and a cheese pizza to share. The chicken parmigiana ($13.95) came with a side of spaghetti. Both items were very good, although a bit overpriced in my opinion. The entree did not include a salad; we ordered one for an additional $2.00.... More

After discovering this wonderful Italian Restaurant, my wife and I have returned several times during our vacation.. The staff is friendly and delivering some of the best pizza we have ever eaten. A huge thank you to the owner "Poppy" of the Italian Restaurant!

Cute little restaurant. When the sign outside says looking for waitstaff, believe it. Seat yourself, was completely disorganized. No joke a fellow customer cleaned our table off. Took a while for someone to come and take order. I ordered the lasagna and get chicken Parmesan. The lady in the booth behind us who knew the owner took my order to... More
