This was recommended to us as a great place to eat in downtown Luray. Our experience, however, was that the food was saturated in salt. And most likely, that salt was MSG because I had a terrible reaction. The side "salad" was a handful of wilted iceberg lettuce, a slice of cucumber, and a soggy tomato slice. The breadsticks were...

This little unimposing restaurant with it's diner-look, will surprise you with gourmet quality dining! The Italian fare the chef creates is superb; subtly flavored sauces and delicious pasta dishes will tempt you. If you ask for something special, he might just create it for you as he did for us! It is a friendly spot where you might meet one... More

I had a pizza delivered to my hotel room. It was fantastic and probably one of the best pizzas I have ever had. Delivery was quick.

I was in Luray to visit The Caverns and staying at the Best Western next door. I walked over to this restaurant and ordered the baked spaghetti. They agreed to do a childs size plate for me, since I didn't want a large amount of food. They still loaded me up on a ton of spaghetti. It was the best... More

Ordered the daily special, which was a large 3-topping pizza. The pizza came out not done. The cheese wasn't even melted on it. Had to send it back to cook some more. It was not tasty at all. Had a big problem keeping all of the flies away from our food. Just not a pleasant visit at all. Won't be... More

Very good food. We had pizza, garlic knots, and salad. All very good, and the food is made by true Italians - can't go wrong there.

Forget the ambiance, forget the service. Excellent, excellent pizza. The best we have enjoyed in years since moving from Long Island. They make the sauce, superb; evenly balanced with plenty of cheese on an airy dough and baked to perfection. This along with extremely large glasses of assorted drinks and we were well satisfied after a day out camera hunting... More

This was my first time ordering from them. I placed an order for delivery and gave credit card info over the phone. Once the delivery driver showed up he said it was a cash order. I then called the restaurant to inform them that I have my credit card info. The girl stated that she never got a card from... More

We gave the restaurant a try with two foreign workers from Shenandoah NP. They were just learning about American food and when we suggested eating pizza, they said yes. They saw the menu options and tried a couple of the Italian dishes instead. The service was slow and the food preparation time was extremely slow. The bread was tremendous. The... More

I saw the reviews were good - but seeing how it looked like a fast food joint, I was skeptical at best. However, it was the 4th of July and this was the only place in town that could immediately feed the 3 of us (a ravenous 3 after a hike!). We had a margherita Pizza, fettucine alfredo and a... More
