Loved the menu! Had a range of new foods that I haven't tried before. I am always up for trying new food.

No longer Italian food as the name suggests but still delicious. Had an excellent juicy burger on artisan ciabatta bread with homemade potatoe chips, another member of our party had a very fresh, large tossed salad with grilled chicken. Their fries were excellent also. Would definitely return for a meal.

The atmosphere is nice since it's an old train station. The food is typical Italian food that tasted good and wasn't over priced. The bar area is a bit boring and could use some atmosphere. It looks like they have a great beer selection but they don't have that much of a variety. They did put a deck out back... More

It looked good on the Internet and the staff at Hampton Inn recommended it. If you love Italian food in a casual atmosphere, you must check it out. I had a seafood medley over linguine. The sauce was homemade, the seafood was calamari, shrimp, clams, mussels, all cooked to perfection. I know because the calamari was tender and not over-cooked.... More

Stopped in late one evening with my gf to grab a bite to eat. We spilt an app. My gf had the ahi tuna and I had the 12oz sirloin. There was a great atmosphere, drinks were cold, food was average but our server John was absolutely great very courteous and knowledgeable. Will definitely stop back soon

This is a good restaurant. We have eaten there several times the past few years when we are in town, and have always been happy with the food and the service. In fact, it seems to get better with time. As far as I know this is the only restaurant of any real interest in the area. Everything that we... More

This place was recommended by the staff at the local Hampton Inn. What a great find! Great food, good drink selections, and reasonably priced by todays standards. Wait staff was a little pushy to get us to leave, but we did get there after 8 PM, so I guess we probably were pushing our limits. Overall a great experience and... More

A group of us were on an epic motorcycle road trip and we chose to stay in Sayre as a jump off point. The kind folks at the local Hampton Inn recommended The Original Italian Grill and we were not disappointed. The service was prompt and accurate, our waitress, Shelby, was very attentive. The food was well prepared, obviously home... More
