Great food, Great atmosphere, Great staff. We had excellent philly steak subs and chicken steak sub's. Also had someone in our party on a special diet and the kitchen prepared a dish for them that was delicious!! Great for families. Will definitely be back.

I compare Italian restaurants to those in my home town of Philly. This would not stay open. Around the corner is Sorrentoes which has homemade pasta, cooks its sauce all day long and is owned and managed by Sicilians. However Sorrentoes closes at 9 PM and not open Sunday. Feniccis in the center of town has very good Italian food... More

This place is not a chain. Personal service and tasty authentic Italian cuisine. A must go place for atmosphere. Winner in my book. Loved their pasta.

This is a very friendly family owned and operated business. The food is excellent and the desserts are wonderful too. I love their brick oven pizza and salad, my favorite.

This is one of the very best places in town to go where the food is reliably good, and reasonably priced, to boot. They have a truly outstanding tomato sauce made from scratch (tasty,... More

We have been regulars since they opened and it is consistent, honest, well priced and friendly. What more could someone ask for in basic Italian fare?

Came in for a very early dinner. She ordered a kids pasta and I ordered a spaghetti with pomodoro sauce. We were the only ones in the restaurant so our food came pretty quickly. I was a bit disappointed to see the size of my portion as it was the same size -if not smaller- than the children's pasta. I... More
