Good food slightly higher than average prices

There is indoor and outdoor seating and we chose to eat indoors in the casual restaurant. You order at the counter and then sit down and they bring the food to your table. We ordered a small calzone which was huge for $9 and a steak sandwich special ($12) for 2 subs, both entrees were large... read more

It's in a newer building. Unattractive inside and out. I understand the pasta is good, however. Pizza by the slice, to order.

It's as much a Take-out place as a Dine-in venue, with pizza probably it's best product (skip the pasta, please). On this visit, we ordered a large, 5-topping WELL-DONE pizza for takeout. We picked up a large, cheesy SOGGY pizza, which we ate with knife, fork and many paper towels. The pizza? Crust a 4.0/10.0, Flavor 8.0/10.0, Toppings 5.0/10.0, and... More

I truly enjoy this place. I imagine that it is packed during the term. However, during the summer, it is a great place to have the first coffee at eleven and read the newspapers from MaryAnne's bookstore. The people who work here are college students or locals of Lexington. We are all the laidback beautiful people. Personally, I was part... More

The pasta I had - it was so good I forgot the name of it... be prepared to be FULL! It's a great location as well - within walking distance of all of the hotels and mine in particular.

We read the positive reviews for the clam chowder available on Fri/Sat and decided to give this place a try. So glad we did! The chowder was really good and the bread was great. My order was a cup, but it was served in a bowl (made me wonder how big the bowl must be). My wife ordered the calzone... More

We ate here on a lovely May evening and were lucky enough to get a table on the deck outside. We had the margherita pizza and enjoyed it very much. Really liked the thin crust. Food prices were reasonable but the beer was a bit pricey. Staff were all friendly and outgoing.

When questioning why my order was promised in 20 minutes but took 45, the owner told me "If you don't want to wait, then you should eat someplace else!." Very rude. Prices high. Food going down hill fast. Service, non-existent. Employees are treated very badly. We will no longer be frequenting this establishment. I would strongly recommend finding someplace else... More

Stopped here for early dinner one afternoon. I had spaghetti and meat balls with garlic bread and soup. Everything was good and I would return. It was a little pricey but good

On Fridays and Saturdays they have the BEST clam chowder. You can pair it with a sandwich, or its great as a standalone. They load you up with foccaccia bread with the soup, which is great as well. They have good pasta, panini, pizza, and their altenburger is good too! I don't think you can really go wrong. Grab a... More
