Ordered the veal parm and was very satisfied. Wife had the lasagna with a meatball. Also very satisfied. Indeed, we had it tonight for dinner as well. They give large portions with delicious sauce and great appetizers and salad. You want great Italian, this is the place!

We have visited this restaurant before and have not been disappointed. It was the same on our last visit when we were again astonished by the quality and quantity. This time our party partook of lasagne and seafood pasta in a rich creamy sauce and bolognese. A real treat for Italian foodies.

Great Italian cooking! If you are looking for more of a fluffy atmosphere maybe this won't be the place. If you are looking for great Italian food with a home town feel? This is the place!!! A must try!!

The food, and friendly service was wonderful. They give you large portions so be prepared!!!! The Italian veal parm with spaghetti was my choice and it was the best veal ever. They also serve wonderful steaks and seafood. Even the early bird menu was awesome!

Just a small family-owned business, but OH the delicious food! Tried,the 13-layer lasagna and had to take half of it home for lunch the next day. Came with salad and HOT bread with great dipping sauce. Excellent sauce over this Italian dish. Good prices. Corner of Albee Road and US 41. A little hard to find a parking spot but... More

We went to this little place off the Trail one night because we had noticed it was ALWAYS packed. Turns out, the crowd was indicative of the wonderful food!!! The place is old and not updated looking so one has the feeing the Godfather might be back behind the kitchen still calling the shots. It seems that it is a... More
