Ribs. Were very very good. Definitely a recommendation. Pasta was ok. Overall for the value it was a nice dinner. Service was very nice (Maggie I think... More

At home in NE Ohio we have a local, family run Italian Steak and Spaghetti house that has been an institution in the area since the 1930s. It is a favorite of ours. Although not as old, this would be the Sault Ste Marie equivalent and the food was every bit as good. Cocktails made well, wide ranging menu, interesting... More

The food is always great. A traditional Italian restaurant that offers pastas, steak, seafood. This is our "go-to" restaurant when we go out with family and friends. The homemade pastas are wonderful but the real treat is the exemplary service. Don't pass on this restaurant if you are in the Sault!

Couples night out, the boyfriend loves his Gnocchi and there is no where else we go in town. I myself prefer the Chicken Parmesan. Very creamy and tender chicken don't even need a knife. Home made sauces are the best in town. You have to try it.

I've recently moved to Sault Saint Marie from Minneapolis. Compared to more modern style restaurants, the interior and menu was not anyting special. I found the prices to be a not high for the type of place. However they make their own pasta and it was very good along with the service. It wasn't horrible but not memorable for me.
