Great place, well located at Brookhurst and Ball. They have lunch specials that are a good deal. I did not leave feeling hungry.

My husband had the Chicken Parmigiana and he said it's the best he has ever had.... and he is VERY picky about his Chicken Parm. We loved that the standard is that soup AND salad comes with the meal, not having to choose between one or the other. We also loved how when you walk in, it felt like walking... More

Great service and the place smelled fantastic, assuming you like the smell of Italian food cooing. The lasagna may have been one of the best I have ever had. I also thought the gravy/sauce was a special fantastic flavor ! I wish I lived near this place so I could eat there as often as possible. !

I used the banquet room and catering here for my mother's 80th birthday. Connie and her staff were amazing! The food was was wonderful!! It is perfect for groups of 100 or less.

In the area and have wanted to try this place after seeing it on Diner's Drive-Ins and Dives. Very busy for a Sunday evening. We had the Lasagna, not much cheese, meat or sauce. Spaghetti and Meatballs - Bland meatballs were mushy no flavor. Sauce was good. Ministroni Soup over powered with pasta. Salads, came from a bag mix. Service... More

DDD got it wrong. We ordered what DDD recommended and while it was OK, it wasn't worthy of high praise. We have tried several of DDD featured restaurants with mixed results. Here, he recommended the Pisano and while it was good, it wasn't $18.99 good. Also DDD recommended Mama"s Special Pizza ($18.24 for medium) and it was just average. We... More

I have eaten here several times and the food has always been very tasty heavy and rich Italian food. But this time the food was just ok nothing really tasted all that flavorful and the food presentation was severely lacking. Was not impressed by any dish out of the 9 brought to the table. Something has definitely changed this was... More

I have to say after reading some of the YELP reviews I was a bit uneasy to eat here, but It was amazing. The service was amazing, the food was crazy good and the drinks were cheap. I recommend the Mama's special pizza it was amazing. Go and have a wonderful time with friends or family

My family has been going to this restaurant for years. Recently...The staff was great but the food was not. I have no idea what has happened to the quality of their food and more specifically, the sauces. We tried three sauces of the different meals in our group and all were terrible. I give them 2 stars because the side... More
