We have lived in the area for Twenty years. I don't know why we never tried it since we heard so many great reviews. Well, now it is one of our favorite places to eat. The specials are always great, especially the stuffed peppers

The whole family had converged in Dubuque for a funeral. The local clan raved about this place. It wasn't awful but I have had much better. The décor is dated and everything feels grungy and dirty. The air conditioning was cranked and the wall units...More
