food was very good and so was the service--atmosphere not so much--small bar area to wait in--dining areas are very small

This is a local family owned restaurant. It is definitely a local favorite I was there around 5:30 by 6:30 the entire place was packed and waiters were running all over the place. I had the baked lasagna dinner. The meal comes with this little garlic loaf which was steaming and laden with a herb butter. The lasagna was fresh... More

This place is easy to miss if you don't know where you are looking. Great place for couples and friends. Full bar at the entrance. Lots of locals hang out here. Authentic Italian food served fast and fresh. Good for takeout too! Plenty of parking in the rear the restaurant. Easy access. Highly recommend!

This place was right behind our motel, so we gave it a try for lunch. First, it's a very comfy interior - worn, but in a good way. There are wonderful cooking aromas coming from the kitchen and you definitely got a welcoming feeling. We ordered a split Caesar salad and a pizza. The salad had a traditional anchovy flavor,...

I was traveling from Arizona with family and we decided we wanted Italian food for dinner. We were driving though Banning Ca. at the time and had no idea where to go. To our surprise we found a great family owned Italian restaurant. Small, understated green building on the outside, but when we walked through the door we couldn't help... More

Really good food at a reasonable price. Lunch is a particularly good bargain. "Mama", now in her eighties, comes in early every morning to cook delicious dishes. Not a "fancy" restaurant, and a bit forbidding on the outside, but inside it is homey and comfortable.Small, cosy bar.

We visit whenever we pass thru Banning. The outside is not the most attractive, but when you walk in, you are transported back in time and place to, what I consider, a classic New York Mom & Pop bar & restaurant. The bar space is small, dark & cozy, and smells like bars I knew back East. The dining area... More

This is a true hole in the wall with lovely food and good service. My particular favorite is the senior specials with smaller portions and a complete meal! I always order the Eggplant Parmesean. It's GREAT!

We called for a take away, first time to taste their great food. Nice, fresh dinner salad, warm garlic bread. I had the spaghetti with garlic and oil and my friend ordered the spaghetti with meatballs. The food as perfectly cooked, and still nice and hot when we got home. Servings are very large, leftovers for certain. Highly recommend. This... More
