Well, its not "crazy" but the family is local and they're really GOOD people and they're very honest and serve a really nice FAMILY meal with a pleasant ambiance. The owners will interact with you and your children if you like, or they will give you your space after a long day. The food is excellent and very value driven-my... More

En route from South Carolina to Pennsylvania via 95 North we decided to stop for a late lunch before reaching Richmond. After reading the reviews we were looking forward to a much needed break from our road trip and thought the Mad Italian would offer the refreshment we desired. We were drawn to the restaurant based on the reviews that... More

First... They are Greek.. Lots of Greek dishes on the menu. The Italian dishes we ate were very good, not large but very good. Service was excellent.

While they have Italian entrees, this is really a Greek Restaurant. We had the shrimp and Feta Cheese entree. Very rich and delicious. We stop every year on our way to and from Myrtle Beach.

After driving 8 hours, my husband and I decided to try this restaurant because of the gracious reviews from Tripadvisor. Boy, were we let down. First of all, this place was hard to find, probably because of my GPS. Upon entering, we were overwhelmed by the random decor including tables hanging from the ceiling. It was like we stepped into...

We had a large group going out for supper after an out of town race. Some were looking for Italian some wanted a good steak. The menu here had a little bit of everything and something for everyone. We were able to order fountain drink by the pitcher which was fantastic after a race on a very hot day. And... More

This was true pizza in every sense of the word: thin, crispy crust, with just the right amount of sauce and cheese--and finely sliced meat and veggies. Our pitcher of beer was COLD and good. Service was prompt and friendly--which was amazing because there was a bus group there when we first arrived. Overall--a very, very pleasant dining experience!

Parking is plentiful and we were greeted at the door by a friendly staff. The restauarant has a diner feel with booths and wine bottles lining the wall. No complimentary bread was served. Our salads were fresh with homemade dressings. I was asked to take my fork that I left on the salad plate instead of them bringing me another.... More
