It is an ok restaurant to go with kids. If you want wine or a beer, you need to bring it. Food is fair, but massive. I didn't see any italian and probably that's why I think the name if the restaurant is not so correct in "real" italian.

-Tour of Sicily Lasagna, Chicken Parmigiana, and Fettuccine Alfredo$ 16.95  - Chef Combo Lasagna, Manicotti, Cannelloni, and Baked Zeti$ 14.95. Both plates are so good. I just came back a few days later to try the super large pizza ever one was ordering while I was having my dinner. I look forward to coming again and again.

What a nice surprise in this little Italian spot. Not the same old chain Italian. They 1st brought fat, fluffy, garlic yeast rolls, and we enjoyed smooth, clean iced tea. The menu was plentiful, descriptive and authentic. My husband ordered the ribeye marsala w/sautéed mushrooms, linguini & grilled veggies. They gravy was so delicious & he said the steak was... More

I was in Odessa on a project and hungry for Italian food and found this restaurant in the phone book. It sit's back behind some office building and at first did not see it. My first impression walking through the door was two people sitting talking and one asked me if they could help me. I stated I would like... More

I went there one time for dinner. I was not impressed. I have not been back. Olive Garden is far better - better selection, better ambiance, better wine selection, better menu.

I love the classic thin "fold it in half and take a big bite" crust, the sauce is perfect, what more could you ask for in pizza? I'm not a fan of Chicago style pizzas, so I can see why some might not like it - but if you want real Italian style pizza like they serve in New York... More

This is a place with character. The food is much better than the fast food chains. I have been eating here for a couple of years now and have never been disappointed with the food or the service. I always start out with the soup and the fantastic bread. It is a byob place so we like to bring a... More
