super casual italian

When we pulled up I thought I might have been under dressed then I noticed it had a drive through. Make sure you order first and then get your silverware and drinks and relax, if its cold they have a fireplace to help set the mood. Anyway I would avoid the bruschetta its not traditional at all, not... read more

This place has great reviews, apparently it's from a bunch of rednecks that have never eaten real Italian food. First off you have to order your food at a counter from a menu on the wall over your head, real classy. The bread was hard and nasty and the Mariana was too sweet. Ordered eggplant parmesan and chicken parmesan and... More

The ambience was very nice and the food was even better. Great service for a restaurant where you walk up and place your order at the window. I would really recommend it.

My husband and I treated our son and his girlfriend (who are locals) to a quiet, peaceful lunch one weekend. We hadn't seen each other in a while and it was great to talk and catch-up. The food is prepared all fresh, so there may be a small wait, but when it arrives piping hot and beautifully baked, it's sumptuous.... More

There was a group of 10 people whom ate here this past weekend. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals, We all had different items but the cannelloni was probably the best! We ate pizza, lasagna, spaghetti, bread sticks! We were definitely happy! This is our 3rd time to eat here and always great! The meals were very reasonably priced at... More

For being an old Taco Bell, this place is pretty good. You won't find a better lasagna than the one they serve. The breadsticks are a must.

Ate here without checking reviews. Didn't realize that you have to stand in line to order and than go find your own table. They do give you a number and at least bring your food to you. Food was good but not great. Very casual dining.

On the plus side, you can get a beer or some wine. On the downside, everything else. From the outside it looks promising but once through those doors you feel as though you've been transported to a hospital cafe. Tried the lasagna w/eggplant and a bruschetta. Everything tasted as though it had been dipped repeatedly in sugar and did not... More

After Ring Day at A&M we decided to zig while everyone else zagged and got immediate seating at Frittella's. The food was excellent. I judge by the eggplant parmesan, my personal Italian favorite, and was super impressed! The bottle of red Italian wine was amazing. Pizza excellent. Great decor. Cute from the exterior and wonderful inside as well. Can't wait... More

It was little unexpected to order and then sit, but the food is so good! I order lasagna verde and the best cheesecake ever. The lasagna was delish with a superb marinera sauce and lots of cheese. They make their own pasta! But the highlight for me was the cheesecake, so creamy and the crust is so crunchy with some... More
