Ordered 3 pasta meals and 3 orders of garlic knots. Total around $80 which I have no problem with. What I did and continue to have issues with is the amount of food they package, bag and sneak into your bag. This is not the...first time and I refuse to become a check my order customer on a restaurant with higher expectations. No waitress would have served this portion on a plate!! The pasta orders, particularly the primavera was slightly more than half an order with very few vegetables. Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice and you won't get a third chance.More

First of all, I just want to say "thank you" to the wonderful owners and staff who made my birthday so special. My husband and I were there to celebrate my birthday. We started out with crispy calamari which came with lemon and tomatoe sauce--mmm--simply...delicious. I also ordered the 4 extremely large scallops on a bed of wild mushrooms. I definitely would recommend this--best I ever had. My husband had the chicken parmesan. I cannot tell you how large the breaded chicken was--another fabulous dish. Desserts are also delicious--cheese cake, tiramasu, and the almond cake. Also, the pizza's are the best. We usually order the "Danny's Special", thin crust and the Marguerita. You won't be disappointed. Love the crust! (Pizza on Tuesdays are 2 for one!) Appetizers are wonderful too--meatballs, sausage and peppers, I can go on and on!. See you alll soon! Marie-JeanneMore

Overpriced and inconsistent pizza. Forget the pan pizza, soggy with burnt edges and too much garlic. The thin crust is average but overpriced. Go there for the fantastic cocktails and not the food. Basically a great bar with average food.More

My wife and I went to this restaurant for lunch. We were greeted and promptly seated. The waitress brought us our drinks and took our order. We ordered the Labarra supreme pizza. The waitress brought us bread, oil and cheese which we very good and...she kept us informed the progress of the pizza. The pizza was very good, sufficient amount of ingredients and hot. We ended up taking home leftovers. The price was reasonable and the quality was good. The atmosphere of the restaurant is very good and comfortable. We will be making a return trip in the near future.More

Celebrated my birthday with my daughter in law, (who also celebrated her birthday) and family. I can't tell you enough what a great time we had. Starting with the appetizers, sausage and peppers and meatballs in delicious tomatoe sauce--excellent! Just the bread that is served...is wonderful. I ordered the lemon chicken--outstanding. The antipasto salad is great! For dessert, the tiramisu--was the best I have ever tasted. Cannolis were great, too. Thank you, LaBarra, for making our celebrations special! P.S. I was there the week before to celebrate an anniversary. Again, we had the time of our lives! P.S.S. Not to mention, the pizza is excellent, too! I plan to take my friends there soon!More
