I'm a west side Clevelander, and worked in Mentor. My experience here is always excellent! The food portions and quality and quantity are amazing. The staff and owner are such wonderful people. Mr.Zappitelli is a terrific host and the food is authentic, not processed, the specials are wide and filling. The chicken Parmesan has to be the best anywhere. The... More

After reading reviews I expected more. Large portions, yes, but quality, no. I had a small pepperoni pizza which was fine. Spouse had spaghetti with sausage which was average. Granddaughter had chicken parm which she loved. Salad was average and bread was just so so. Waitress seemed tired and never smiled. Placed order at 7 and food arrived at 7:35!... More

I love the food and service here, it is excellent every time!!! But I have to agree the owner needs to update and expand the restaurant somehow. By doing so they can easily have a bar where people can eat/drink or drink while waiting for a table. I like the decor but the place needs to be bigger. There is... More

Have been there many times and was there Sunday night with 10 family members. Everyone ordered a homemade pasta; cavatelli, spaghetti, and potato gnocchi. Each comes with two large delicious meatballs. Everyone loved their dishes. All but one had leftovers. A large salad and warm bread comes with the meal. They also have pizza, veal, chicken, and specials. Service is... More

Good food and plenty of it. No atmosphere just good food. You may have to wait awhile on Friday and Saturday.

loved the housemade pasta. you can easily split a portion and still eat plenty. Pastas come with two meatballs-- also great. little crowded when i went, but my friends say that was unusual. Dont' forget to ask about the cream puffs-- they are as big as your head! Yummy!

This was our first time, but it will not be the last. Have to agree with the other reviews the food is to die for and the size of the portions are not to be believed. Will be back many times in the days to come.

This place is awesome! We go often, our most recent visit being two weeks ago for my sister's birthday. She comes from Parma just to eat here. They serve authentic Italian, and their sauce is the best around. We usually get the homemade spaghetti and meatballs, and the meatballs are huge. With so many restaurants cutting corners these days, (and... More
