A little pricey for an average meal

Server was very lovely and efficient. Best advise: Regular drinks are $2.25 for what must be at least 24 oz and we got free refills. However if you ask for a drink with a lid for a child they get an 8oz cup and they charge for the refill. Take a soppy cup!!! Also kids chicken and fries were... read more

Dear John's - I'm sorry to break-up with you this way, after so many long & loyal years. After eight years of commitment you've proven to me that I cared for you a lot more than you cared for me. At first it was great food, great drinks and great company. We've been in each other's company for many Halloweens'... More

Nice place up in the mountains. Good Italian food. We went for lunch and I had the chicken parm. Of course I had to bring home half of it. The portions were large. My date had the veal parm hoagie which was also good. Please was clean and nice. Not very busy for lunch but it was a holiday and... More

Place was kind of dirty. Food was just ok what I had. What my husband had he couldn't even eat. Wouldn't recommend this place.

Visiting family in Lake Ariel, and They frequent this location. Chicken Marsala was just okay - I hate canned mushrooms. Penne with vodka sauce was pretty good. Everyone loved the chicken parm. Save room for dessert and get the tiramisu! Homemade and amazing!! Brownie with ice cream was pretty tasty, as well. But don't skip that tiramisu!! Waitress and other... More

We were lucky enough to find this place on " all you can eat pasta Monday", which was delicious. Only had one plate because the servings were so generous. We knew we were in luck when we saw the parking area full of cars. Prices were great, food was delicious and the service was friendly and efficient. Great find.

This restaurant serves up authentic Italian food in an unpretentious atmosphere. With a cheerful wait staff, and a willingness to prepare dishes to order (sautéed fresh broccoli with oil and garlic, spaghetti aglia olio al dente with a touch of anchovy, no problem). Full bar service and an adequate wine list combined with moderate prices add up to an enjoyable... More
