Great food, great value, great music

Every dish I've tried here has never failed to satisfy. The homemade desserts are to die for. Live jazz creates the perfect ambiance. A "hidden gem" in WashPA

A great little family owned restaurant with really good food and friendly atmosphere. , it's especially nice for a quiet date out with occasional live entertainment.

I tried the Penne Lasse (which blended together perfectly with just enough sauce), the raspberry vinegarittte dressing with a garden salad and bread pudding. Now the entree and salad were good but this bread pudding...man o man I regret not coming back and ordering more. The amount of love put into this banana pudding is definitely there and I will...

I've been here several times for dinner and lunch for both business and pleasure. It's consistent. The Food is well prepared and it is a nice menu. Service is just OK.

Great service and balsamic vinaigrette. I had to pick through my lettuce in my salad and put it aside on my bread plate - so much of it was discolored or rotten looking. The chicken was chewy, not tender. My husband loved his Rueben, but we both wondered why the #1 reviewed restaurant in Washington served frozen crinkle-cut fries. Positives... More

I gave it 5 stars, not because it's the greatest place I've ever eaten. It's not fine dining. It is however a great, great place. If you're reading this review because you're unfamiliar with Washington and are looking for a good place to eat, go to this place. Everything our party of 3 ordered was absolutely great. It's all made... More

Stopped in for a dinner date on Saturday evening after 8 pm and were seated immediately. The glass of Rieseling was outstanding. Balsamic vinegar dressing added a nice zesty flavor to the salad. Enjoyed the Penne a la vodka adding grilled chicken which was yummy. Will have to save room on a return trip for dessert!

Stopped here before checking in to hotel as my husband and I wanted to grab dinner and a drink. The name throws you off. This is not a bar and grill, it is an Italian restaurant. Reading reviews and seeing the name, we assumed it was like an everyone knows your name, sports memorabilia on walls kind of place. It... More

there is always something that you have not had for a long time or wanted to try on the menu. the outside is not that inviting for someone looking for fancy but ask anyone in town or the neighborhood and you will get a great review. a local favorite
