Good quality italian food, cheap eats, quick service, on main street lexington. This is a classic family italian restaurant, many steps above any chain italian restaurant, only in new england. Loved it

i was so looking forward to their Baked Ziti but I think I ordered it wrong as I got it with their Meat Sauce and I didn't like it. I should have gotten their Marinara Sauce, I bet it would have been better. The chicken...More

It is open every day and you would take Exit 31A and stay straight for for about a mile or so and it is on your left at the main intersection in Lexington Center, next door to the CVS.
