I've heard so much about this place over the years so I finally tried it. Sadly I won't be returning. I got several meals for takeout so I can't speak to the service but the food wasn't very good. Especially considering the price. 2 adult...More

Excellent service. Food is very fresh and different than the chains. It is worth the stop. Huge rolls with honey. Everything I have had on the menu is good.

Way back in 1950's I would eat here once a week. Now that I live out of area I visit whenever in area. What a time capsule. Same decor, layout, excellent spaghetti, steaks, fried chicken, rolls, salad as in 1950's.

Was recommended by the front desk at the Holiday Inn. Worth the ten-minute drive! Wonderful salads, great homemade bread, and the pasta was plentiful! Save room for desert!

Anything close to Italian is purely coincidental. They serve mostly chicken. No Italian sausage on the menu. Few pasta dishes. .Wine glasses very dirty. Poor, slow service. This could be a good restaurant but it need a total refurbish. Old and tired!
