Ehhhhhhh

Went during a visit to Danville. Seated within 10 minutes by a hostess who clearly had better things to do than smile. Server was friendly however. My meal consisted of calamari appetizer and main dish of chicken parm. The calamari was paired with a garlicky (not a bad thing) marinara. The... read more

One of Danville's hidden gems. If you are not from Danville, you might not know about it. It is hidden away in the Riverside Shopping Center. The food is always delicious and the service is excellent. I love the salad bar! Tiramisu is homemade by Mimma herself. It is worth saving room for!!

Salad bar is small but stocked with really good stuff. Been eating here for 30+ years and have never been disappointed. For an Italian restaurant the prices are reasonable. I don't know what makes authentic Italian cuisine but I think this might be it.

Always a good meal. Great atmosphere and they have been here for a long long time. A little pricey but I don't mind paying a little more for a really good meal. If you are in a hurry they are a bit slow, but it is a great place for a date.

Best steak sub in town. Their foccacia is wonderful. I've never walked away disappointed over 30 years. They need some new booths, but I can handle it because I love their food and service. The salad bar is great too.

The food and service here are above that of other most other area restaurants. Back in the 80's it was "the" place to go, but now the prices are prohibitive. I will go to the Italian franchise here instead unless it is a special occasion.

the food is good, not great, not bad, just good. But the restaurant is one the way down and out. It's worn, the carpet is best not viewed, the booths are cracked and saggy, everything looks like it took a beating and should have been updated years ago. the situation is a shame since it had a great reputation and...

Spinach Manicotti and a good salad bar. The food was delicious, the portions were more than sufficient, very filling.

A longtime Danville, Virginia fixture, the food is delicious. The cheese manicotti is superb along with a variety of other selections.

This used to be one of my favorite places, way back when. There is no care to impress diners now, though. The carpeting is old and filthy! (It makes me wonder what else is that neglected.) The booths are saggy. The decor is dated. The servers are nice, but the food is greasy. Some food is prepared and frozen ahead... More
