They have some yummy butter garlic rolls. We really like their house sweet vinaigrette salad dressing. One of our favorite places!

My favorite is the stuffed eggplant.It is small and has little room for waiting, but will take a cell number and call when your time is close. There is a bar a block away.

Best dish ever hands down. I love to eat out and I have had a ton of Italian food in NY and Chicago. Best bang for the buck for authentic Italian. The owner will make your food. You will never go back to Italian chain food restaurants if you stay in the area. Try what you like. However, the breast... More

Read the glowing reviews and decided to give it a try on our visit from New York. I ordered the crab cakes...what a disappointment. If I had been blindfolded I would not have been able to guess that I was eating crab. Tasted no pieces of fresh crab at all. Tasted like it was made from a can and fried... More

It had wonderful fresh pasta. The dishes were original. The garlic rolls were to die for. The place was packed, which is always a good sign. The service was fast and good. And we believe we saw the actual owner in the kitchen preparing the dishes.

This is a quaint little restaurant in the heart of McDonough. We were in the area and dined for the second time. Ordered two of the 'specials of the day'. We had forgotten that portions are more than enough to share!

The Grilled Chicken Salad is a favorite as is the pasta. The bread and sweet tea are fantastic. If you come during lunch, be prepared to talk. All the locals like to hang out and eat. Love this place.

This is a cozy Italian restaurant located just off the McDonough Square. The food is delicious with nice sized portions. The wait staff does a good job explaining the menu and answering any questions. If you have food allergies, the chef is willing to work around those issues.

My husband and I stopped in for dinner on our way home from Atlanta. A friend told us about this place and encouraged us to try it and I'm glad she did. My husband ordered the Veal Parmigiana which absolutely delicious and I instantly regretted that I didn't chose the same. I had the Penne Rigate which was good, but... More

This place is really good!!! Rolls kick but and service is good. It's small though and there is always a wait. A little pricey too but we'll worth it.
