“great value, but it used to be much better”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2012

a plate of pasta, some water with fruit, neon lights, great atmosphere. the food used to be much better but for the family you can't beat the prices, a plate of pasta will run you $6-$15 depending on what you get and what toppings you want. anything Parm is delicious, as is the veal franchise. do yourself a favor and give it a shot. decent people and decent food can't go wrong

“Good food, Lots of it and Inexpensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2011

My wife and I dined with friends who have eaten here before and we were pleasantly surprised by this neighborhhod place. Our friends told us to order and share only one appetizer and entree. I was skeptical but wow! I'm a good eater and couldn't have finished one serving by myself.
Everything was excellent. We had a superior fresh antipasto with a large selection of Italian meats & cheeses. We had a remarkably good order of pasta and seafood that even two of us couldn't finish. The sauce was homemade and seasoned perfectly. A nice touch is that the menu includes drawings of types of pasta and you can choose what you like. We will certainly return to this restaurant!
