“Love, love, love it!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2012

Excellent food & service. My family has been there many times and everyone is always so friendly especially with the kids. I have a 3 year old & 1 year old. They love the spaghetti & meatball. I've had the chicken parm - wonderful portion size I can never finish. The chicken & penne with vodka sauce is out of this world. The spinach lasagna and the stuffed eggplant are great choices too. And you can't go wrong with Dolly's gnocci either. But save room for dessert because they have the best tiramisu I've ever had. It is also bring your own alcohol so we bring a good bottle of wine to enjoy with the meal - huge cost saver. But don't worry if you forget to bring some you can get a complimentary glass of wine with your meal.

“not worth a visit”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2011

Ate there for the 3rd time with our family. First 2 times were not good, but we alwats want to supprt local business so we were giving it the benefit of the doubt. This recent vist was the worst yet!!!! Ordered "vodka" sauce. Questioned chef on the recipe, he stated was a secret. As as a very experienced cook, I could as well as my husband taste a very distinct cambells tomato soup flavor, upon further asking it became clear that tha " chef" was inept. Ordered a canolli, tasted like cream cheese, whipped cream and sugar, no flavor at all!!!! Waitress suggested chicken parm as the house special.....wow!!!! Go to Aldo's or even Olive Garden.......families stay away.....our kids were YELLED at for walking around the 4 people that were there, as we were paying our bill. The staff were "concerned" they would get hurt. Not sure how that would happen with an empty place and 2 kids walking towards the door!!!!!!!!!!! Save your $$$$$$$
