Good food, slightly high prices; the pizza is above average for the immediate area. We ordered pizzas and two of the eggplant rollatini apps which actually came to us as entrees with sides of pasta and salads at a higher price. ??? Good taste but,...the prosciutto in it was thickly sliced making it tough and difficult to chew; definitely needs an adjustment!More

We were looking for somewhere else but pulled up here and glad we went in! Extensive menu on wall monitors, order at the register and they bring it to you at the table. I had the veal francese and my partner had the chicken saltimbuca....They came with salads. I had mine over the fetticini and he had the ziti. We both agreed it was better than sitting at fancy restuarant with table cloths and full service. Well worth it. In fact, we both brought half of our meals home: enough for another meal!More

30 members of the Class of 58 and theirs spouses celebrated here last evening. Peter and his team (Karen and Ann) delivered a terrific evening. The room was bright and easily accommodated us, the tables were nicely set and adorned with a simple but pretty...center piece. The buffet was nicely presented and the food, Atlantic cod, chicken Marsala and penne with marinara sauce, was really good. Our servers took very good care of us and Peter, the owner, was very easy to deal with. More importantly, he delivered everything we asked for. The Class will not hesitate to return. Thanks Peter!More

I'm from northern, NJ where there's a pizzeria on every corner. I grew up on home made Italian food, had my own catering/baking business and since I moved to MA I have not found anything quite similar to the old school pizza shops in NJ...until now. This place is the real deal; authentic, home made Italian cooking at its finest. I was amazed how extensive the menu was and the prices are very reasonable. Better than any chain store and even most if not all the high end Italian restaurants. I would highly recommend to anyone who wants great Italian cooking. Even though its over an hour away; we'll be back here for sure.More

Depending what you order, they can be either four or three stars. Their service is top notch and everyone here is friendly and helpful. I hadn’t been here in a while and I see that they’ve done a remodel with new flooring, new counters and...TV menu boards. Nicely done. The decor made me feel sort of at home. Our food was really good to just okay. I had the ziti carbonara and my wife had the ravioli. My dish was very good, but not quite like you would get at an Italian restaurant or somewhere like that, but still decent. My wife will not order anything again from here that has tomato sauce. She just doesn’t like the flavor at all and I agree. I really don’t think it’s “bad”, it’s just personal taste according to how you like your sauce made,, and their sauce is simply not our type. She did think the ravioli was pretty good but the sauce took away from it. I will say that they have one of the biggest menus I’ve seen in a “Sub shop”. Something for pretty much everyone. They also always have about six or more specials everyday. My favorites of them are the Mac and Cheese and the American Chop Suey, which I haven’t seen in a long time, but I may be coming in on the wrong day. I’ve had their steak and cheese subs quite often and they are top notch and their pizza is one of the better ones.More

We had a bunch of friends over last night and didn't feel like cooking so we ordered about 8 different things to split. We were told 20-30 minutes until we could pick it up and when we got there 25 minutes later we had to...wait another 35 until it was ready. Not fun when there are 4 young kids at home waiting. Unfortunately the food wasn't good at all. First off, it was covered in grease, I'm still scrubbing my counters. Once we got around that and started eating, most of the food was inedible. The eggplant was extremely bitter. The gnocchi and baked ziti tasted awful, which is impressive because those are really hard to mess up. The chicken piccata was horribly sour, like they dumped an entire bottle of lemon juice on it. Even the garlic bread wasn't worth eating. 3 of the adults and 3 of the kids didn't eat because it was so bad. The only things that did get eaten were the chick Caesar salad and the pasta with butter. I would avoid anything on their Italian menu if you're actually looking to eat.More

Awesome food, huge menu. When I first went there my friends brought me there years ago I said what is good. He says everything, and I'm like come on what is good and when he said everything he means everything. My family has never had...bad food from there no matter what it was. The dine in experience is unique and really cool. You get salad and garlic dread and the food is served as soon as it is cooked. All in all love this place but go in hungry come out full or over stuffed and still have left overs for work or dinner next day....... well used to love this place but the girl at the front had a wicked bad attitude threw our food on the table and had a huge chip on her shoulder, almost enough to not want to come back again , always loved this place but wow it was a huge turn off almost want to get up and leave without finishing my meal.More

The past couple times we've gone it was not as good as in the past. I used to get the chicken saltimbocca and enjoyed it. Tonight the fish and chips was not enjoyable and not in a tempura batter as advertised. It didn't taste right....Tartar sauce was orange/red. Marsala sauce on the chicken dish was gross. Too sweet, perhaps undercooked. No side salads, as we always had in the past. My fish dinner came out WAY before my companion's chicken dinner.More
