I've never had the pizza, but I like some of their other dishes. The sandwiches are pretty good too.

This restaurant is locally owned and operated and can be hectic at times but I still like the pizza, lasagna and sub sandwiches here. I have been here many times and would continue to recommend to everyone. I know everyone can have a bad experience at any restaurant on occasion but this place definitely stays at the top of my...

Delicious food right on the main Berea square. Easy walk to great shopping for local crafts. Recently expanded seating.

We always spend a night in Berea on our way home from our "fall color tour" in the Smoky's and this Italian restaurant has become a tradition for us. The pizza is very good and the atmosphere is nice as it is located in the city center square.

Pizza, lasagna, baked spaghetti all great. Garlic Bread is huge and good. The Decor is nice too. Order at the counter and they bring the food to your table. We eat here whenever we visit Berea,Kentucky.

We were hungry and looking for somewhere local to eat a hot meal. The spaghetti was blah - no flavor. The chicken parmesan was over cooked. On a brite note the staff was very nice and attentive.

We 2 vegan tourists ate here while shopping in Berea. I got the Portabella sandwich, which was good but it seemed like half a sandwich. My friend got twice as big a sandwich here (and she thought she had ordered a half a sandwich). The price I paid was fair enough for what I got, and I was happy that... More
