Great food, authentic itallian. Family atmosphere that makes you feel comfortable and at home. Raviolli, scampi, and lasagna are all excellent.

“Good food; great value; warm, family atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2009

Lots of good stuff. Lasagna and scampi are fabulous. Check out the specials, and if you are a salad fan, lots to enjoy here. Portabella salad is wonderful, and best I've ever tasted. White pizza is a special treat, but it keep it simple: tomatoes only is my favorite. Want something special, or maybe you want the garlic sauce toned down: let them know. It's all made at the time of the order. Family owned, and you feel that way.

“Best " Authentic" Homemade Italian Outside Chicago”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2009

Small but cozy/comfortable atmosphere, Family run/oriented ( not a bar environment) but good alcohol selection, pasta is just right and sauces(gravy to the Pizannes) are authentic, not excessively sweet like most chains that the average american thinks is "Italian". Desserts (cannolies e.g.) are likewise the real deal. Most underated restaurant in jackson, thats Ok leaves more for me! Closed Sunday and Monday

“Not really impressed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2008

I had the ravioli here and quite honestly, was not impressed. It taasted like it had been frozen and I could have gotten the same flavor from the grocery store.

The atmosphere was clean. The wait staff was nice and did a good job with service.

We probably will not return.
