Have been here many times over the past year. In some areas and at some times, it has been excellent. At other times, it has been so disappointing - e.g. the baked pasta dish that was baked into mush, the bread, so previously good, that was totally different and not good. I enticed a friend out of The Villages to... More

Too many viable eateries to bother here ...unless you like heavily salted food, and mushy pasta. Total facility could use a compleete cleaning !

Fresh baked bread is the only highlight of this restaurant. Large portion entrees but not very good flavor. Overly thick burnt tomato sauce. Mealy meatballs. Eggplant was over cooked.

Went with my husband on a whim. Not that big of a place (which isnt a bad thing). It is when the finally seat you and you have to wait 15 min. to put your drink order in. They bring you homemade bread out to nibble on while you wait. And yet we are still waiting on our drinks. Finally... More

A cute family owned resturant with great service and a local following. The food was ok but not great. The bread was amazing but my pasta was sticky and far too salty. My husband felt the same about his meal. It may be good for some tastes but not ours. I doubt we will go there again.

Very friendly family owned Restaurant featuring traditional Italian dishes at very reasonable prices. Nothing fancy but very good food. Cute stand alone building right on Route 441. You are sure to enjoy your visit.

First time visit at Mom & Dad's. Friends raved about it but I am not a pasta - Italian food lover so I ordered a Calzone with Pepperoni and Sausage, They ordered their favorites. I was thrilled to be able to get a Calzone but when it came out it was overcooked and burned on top. I usually do not... More

We were told this was the place to go for authentic Italian food. We were not impressed. The food was average. Pasta was dry and sticky. Not very big, and tables were close together

I have to agree with the writer who says to not let the outside fool you - I have passed this place many times and it is so "understated" that I wondered if they were even in business (my travels passed were before business hours). Seeing their advertisement in the local paper, I thought to give them a try while... More
