Their pizza is really good and they don't skimp on the toppings. The sauce on the dishes I've had is homemade. It gets a bit crowded in the dining area but that's to be expected because it's a local favorite. Not much in the way...More

This easy to miss restaurant has top notch inexpensive Italian entrees and pizza. Great value. My wife had an excellent Cod with linguini special and I had sausage, peppers and pasta.

Good prices! Good Italian food and pretty atmosphere. Only bad thing I have to say is there is not a ton of seating in the restaurant area and if you go with just two people you have to sit at a table because they save...More

Ignore the exterior gas station and quickly walk in to grab some delicious Italian dishes. The interior of the restaurant is quite nice and provides good ambiance for your meal, whether it's romantic or just a regular occasion. The spaghetti with meat sauce is delicious...More
