Not the greatest, not the worst

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... read 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!

New York style pizza in the mountains! What a pleasure. Also excellent Italian dishes with basic beer and wine available.

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

After discovering this wonderful Italian Restaurant, my husband and I have returned many times. While the service is a little on the slow side, the wait staff offsets this by being friendly and delivering some of the best pizza we have ever eaten. While waiting for our pizza (I normally call in our order to speed up the wait time),... More

Have eaten here several times. I like the pizza; other pasta dishes are okay, but nothing extraordinary. They don't bake the dishes to a golden brown so the cheese can sometimes seem slimy. I think the thing that keeps us from going back more often (other than the drive from Marion) is the attitude of some of the servers and... More

The food was excellent.....mu husband and I had lasagna and were not disappointed. It wasn't bland like some places are. Only thing I didn't like was the size of their mixed drinks. The glasses looked no larger than 5 ounces and when the ice was added, you could take two sips and your drink was gone instantly.

The food here was great. I got the lasagna, which was yummy. My boys got a pizza and ate it all. I forget what my husband got, but I know he liked it. :)
