This restaurant has a very relaxing atmosphere and it's cozy. The garlic bread is awesome and services is great. I recommend the lasagna it has an original taste (non-commercial) my wife recommend the manicotti dish, both were good.

My family went there for my daughters 14th birthday dinner. I read the reviews and was real worried about going to this restaurant but my daughter wanted Italian. I read one review where it said that your soda came in a can with no free refills. Well I have been to a lot of restaurants that serve cans of soda.... More

The waitress was a little older, she was relatively kind but gave us a bit of attitude when my sister wanted to exchange her salad for a soup.

My husband loves Italian food and we wanted a nice sit down meal. Being a Saturday night we should have known that it was not good because only one car was in lot. Atmosphere is begging for chef Ramsey to come in and revamp. Very outdated. Service was awful. Ordered water to drink and had to wait for a refill... More

The food here is wonderful. Fresh, hot and homemade for a change. Prices are so reasonable. The owners are wonderful to talk to--very friendly and so hospitable. The decor is dated-- red checkered table cloths and simple tables and chairs-- the music is some recorded piano that at times got annoying, but overlooking this, it is a great value The... More

Italian food was not so good, decor and cleanliness not so good either. Restrooms weren't clearly marked. Waitress was very friendly and attentive.
