They got one of the orders completely wrong and lamely offered to correct their mistake, sort of. Our waitress talked really loudly with her friends at the next table, but offered us passable service. My chicken Marsala was pretty good.

If you are looking for a quiet, intimate place, this is not it. If you want wonderful Italian cooking in a lively environment, this is the place for you. It's not a huge place with tons of seating but it's very popular. I would recommend a reservation. The salads are fresh and large - and ever so good. The menu... More

A few tips. Entrance is around back of building & you ring a bell to get in. We were told it would be 45 minutes & we could go to bar downstairs & have a drink & enjoy the antipasto bar. She pointed out the door so my hubby & I left to find the downstairs. No luck. We rang... More

Was here a few years ago and it's still wonderful. Our key card for the front door still works. Novel atmosphere, wonderful food and a gracious host.

I love this place and the two brothers who own it. One came over and sat down and entertained us with some of the funniest stories I have ever heard! And the food was amazing, and not all Italian. I had the Lake Erie Perch dinner, with a side of spaghetti and a great salad and it was all delicious.... More

We have a key card, but rarely have to use it because someone is always at the door opening it to welcome us. We have had family birthday dinners at the restaurant and were treated wonderfully. The atmosphere is cozy Italian! Everyone orders something different so we can share- very big portions.

Just like everyone else that read the reviews and went to check this place out, it was such a great find! The place has character and the food was delicious. Ordered the meatballs appetizer, pasta fagioli and the pasta mafia as entree and it was plenty of food to share with my hubby. We come to Sandusky once a year... More

Staying in Sandusly for the night and wanted something other than a chain. This is a family owned Italian which is a real gem. Great food, huge portions, and very reasonable prices. They have a full bar...my wife and I each had a glass of wine with dinner for only $5.00/glass which is much less than I pay most of... More
