Great pizza. I had cheese with black olives, my husband had a specialty pizza with added jalapeños. We also had tiramisu which was also very good.

We were seated immediately- no wait. Service was very good. Prices are reasonable for the entrees from $12 to $20. Appetizers were good also. You receive plenty of food to eat. You will probably need a to-go box. The veal parmigiana and chicken parmigiana were very good with large portions. The atmosphere was very pleasant. Family friendly atmosphere. I would... More

My family of six has visited several times over the years and each time we enjoyed the food and service. There's variety enough for all and the food quality is great.

As a true Westbanker and despite the raves I heard from family and friends, I had never been to this place until last Wednesday. I ordered a glass of the house chardonnay. I don't even know if it was good or not. I couldn't get past the dirty wine glass with debris floating in my wine. Gross. My husband and... More

The food is always consistently delicious. We like wheat pasta and wheat bread both of which they offer. Their salads are the best and their house Creamy Italian dressing is not to be missed.

Been here twice. Once on a weekend and once midweek. Food is surprisingly good -- tasty and flavorful. The wind list isn't extensive but offers good affordable choices. Service is spotty. The last time on a Tuesday evening, my son and i went at 7:30, and about four tables were in use. by 8:30, we were the only ones there.... More
