This restaurant took us by surprise. It appeared to be another Italian restaurant in a city of Italian Restaurants. It was a pleasant surprise and we feel it is one of the best Italian restaurants in which we have eaten.. my wife had an Italian Seafood dinner and I had Spaghetti and meatballs. We returned and we both had chicken... More

We took our friends to Briandi's for dinner the last night of our vacation. We shared a large pizza and it more than served 4 of us. It was so good we didn't even take home any left overs - but should have. The restaurant is very small and there is usually a wait. There are benches outside, but if... More

We have been here 3 times. The first time it was so packed we didn't stay. The second time (Feb. 2016) there was a short wait. This time (Feb 2017) we waited 20 minutes at the bar while we talked to Charlie, the retired owner. What a character!! If you are looking for fancy wine and drinks, don't go here.... More

We stopped on a whim to have an early dinner and we were not disappointed. It is very tiny inside, so be prepared to wait. However, service was outstanding and prompt and our dinners were very good. We will return. :)))

We were referred to this tiny hole-in-the-wall mom and pop place. And we were amazed by how wonderful everything was. First off it's a tiny little place that you can barely see from the road so you have to look for it. Please don't give up. We had to turn around several times. There are only nine tables inside. We... More

My wife and I had dinner at this place. It's quite small and can be noisy. Tables are very close together. The salads and bread were excellent. We both had veal parm as an entree and we both felt it was just average, but plentiful. Prices were very reasonable. In my opinion they rush people in and out.....but it is... More

Yeah, yeah. The food is great, the service prompt. But Robert Plant ate here twice and I missed it!! So I am only giving it three stars. (Just kidding - this is a great local favorite restaurant!)

Small building on the side of Hwy 41. Small dining room with only 8 tables. Wonderful Italian food from a menu that is adequate without being overwhelming. Servers know the food and have just a bit of sauciness and sincerity that you can only find in a small restaurant. Food is fresh and well prepared. Portions are big, so you... More
