“Sweet Baby J, this is amazing food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

I'd have to say that this was the best meal I've had in months. I mean, WOW. The salmon was earth shattering. The pasta sauce was insane. Pizza was great. Everyone at our table was impressed. Damn, I wish I live nearby.

The set up was weird- you order when you walk in and then they call your number and you go get your order at the counter. No table service which seemed off considering the offerings. They had veal, all kinds of gourmet daily specials like seared rainbow trout. They could smack $10 on to each entree and open up a nice upscale place with this caliber of food and they'd make a KILLING. At the very least they should offer table service, let the staff get some tips. They don't even have an option on the charge slip to tip the staff with your card. They had a loud speaker that blared over the table every time somebody's order was up. "Order 215! Your pizza is ready!" It was annoying and hard to talk over. But hey, they've been doing this thing for 25 years and I have to give it to them, the food was so good, I guess they know what they're doing.

“Close to Hilton Garden Inn/Homewood Suites”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

It is nothing to look at, but they have excellent Italian food. We had pizzas and calzone and both were very tasty.

Meal (penne with zucchini) was very nice. Generous portions in food and drink. Service was stellar - very attentive and quick to help when we had to box up the leftovers

“Little Italy ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

We stopped in to check out this place. To find that the food was excellent. The food was fresh and had authentic taste to what you would order in Italy. This will be on the list to return too.
