I had lunch here with a companion. We both ordered pasta dishes from the lunch menu. My penne with sausage was okay, although I didn’t care for the sausage. My companion’s lasagna was a large serving and was delicious. The prices are reasonable and the...More

Whatever or whenever you go here the meals are always great. Great pizza, amazing pastas, all great portions. Meals have soup or salad included and fresh rolls. Priced really well. Normally very busy but good service.

Years back this was the place to go to with family and friends .. over the years they seem to change to more like a eating production line .. today I think they are a big business in a small town.

Got a medium pizza. Over cooked and dry. Came scrambled in the box. Hardly any cheese. Will not go back. Try a hot and ready. This crap was not worth $30. The worst pizza I have ever had. I wish I had a photo. Posted...More

To start off the restaurant was extremely busy when we went. Huge menu, which always scares me, because the cooks can’t perfect any dish. The food was pretty good but not great, just underwhelming with properly seasoned pasta, and the protein wasn’t seasoned well either....More
