Delicious lunch

My partner and I went here for lunch on a late Saturday afternoon. The wait staff was friendly and helpful. We both enjoyed the lentil soup. I ordered the baked eggplant lasagna which had layers of eggplant instead of noodles and was superb. My husband enjoyed a pasta dish with sausage... read more

Had the pasta fagioli soup and gnocchi on a recent visit. The soup was a large portion for $5 but was tasteless and lacked salt. The homemade gnocchi was the worst I've ever had, mushy, watery and tasteless and way overpriced at $15. The tomato sauce was not fresh tasting. This restaurant used to have white table cloths on the... More

We have eaten here since it opened. Many special family events like birthday's, graduations, anniversaries and just old fashioned let's go out to dinner. Never been disappointed. Is any restaurant perfect everytime, heck no and neither is my home cooking. Had another special night as it was our 34th wedding anniversary. Calamari, nice salad and talapia and pasta with seafood.... More

Well, we learned a valuable lesson-never go by the picture that a restaurant puts on their website-I do not know when you read the review if you can see the picture on the left side of the listing-but the plate looks lovely-nothing at this restaurant comes close to what is displayed. HOWEVER- the food was really, really good! The prices... More

We went to this restaurant last weekend. My first thought was how empty it was for a Saturday night. Although it was not busy we waited about 30 minutes for the waitress to come to take our order. We finally had to go find her and remind her we were there.. There was 4 of us in the party. When... More

We threw a surprise birthday party for my youngest sister last Sunday. They offered three luncheon options from $18-$22 a head. This included birthday cake (made by Lochels Bakery across the street) and soft drinks. The room seated 40 comfortably. The room also has a nice bar. Bill, the manager was easy to work with. Everyone gave the restaurant rave... More

Went to get their famous Eggplant Parmigiana and was not disappointed. Moist, sliced razor thin with fantastic tomato "gravy" perfectly spiced. Guests had tilapia in lemon sauce that was also delectable. Worth the trip to Hatboro to taste.

The highlight of dinner was the garlic knots, which just kept coming. Salads were ok as were dinners....for Italian resteraunt I expected better. Sauce was bland. Service was a bit slow but place was crowded due to car show. Priced reasonably.....wife would return just for more knots!

This is a very nice restaurant but it is HUGE. The interior space takes away any sense of intimacy. The service was very good. The food was not great but reasonably priced. Not really that many pasta dishes. They do try hard and if you're local, you won't go wrong but it's nothing special. It's BYOB.

The portobello mushroom with goat cheese appetizer is delicious. The Italian dishes are very good and the salmon is really good. Prices are reasonable and the service is good. I tried the steak there and it was just ok, so I suggest stick to the Italian food and you will be just fine.
