We love going to effinas! They have the best salads and pasta. I recommend the Alabama field green salad topped with fire roasted chicken with their delicious house dressing. Also, love their chicken rigatoni!

We live nearby and we eat there throughout the year. It really is yummy as well as great service! I have a gluten allergy and they offer a gluten free pasta option.

Its an awesome place especially for a formal meeting or a date due to the serene environment they've created. The food is also great but it takes forever to get to the table. I however thought it was worth the wait.

Great Italian food and beautiful place in a small town. Prices are high for location but worth it. If you are in a rush call ahead, it does take a while to get your food.

If you haven't tried Effina's you are missing out on some great food. I haven't tried everything on the menu but what I have is always outstanding. I'm a big fan of the muffaletta and the calzone. This is the only restaurant in this area...More
