We had a private function room downstairs in this extensive restaurant. The food was good although the service was slow. The restaurant's liquor/wine rules were "strange" - had to order no more than 2 glasses at a time per person and then personally from the bar - wait staff refused to take drink orders - must have been some "out-of-date"...

This restaurant has a long history. Food is always excellent, love the chicken parmesan and egg plant. Salads are very generous, make sure you have the house salad dressing. So happy that the family tradition continues. Many other locations. But this Waltham one will always be my favorite. Never have been disappointed!

We were taking our friends out, but asked them to choose the Italian Restaurant. This one is so huge it has 3 parking lots - one for the handicapped. The food was out of this world and into Little Italy. Everything was so scrumptious I can't wait to return. Our friends who were experienced in eating hear shared their meal.... More

Hmmmmm. We had a gift certificate so we tried it out. This restaurant was pretty gross. The atmosphere tired, food heavy, greasy, yuck. The staff was very friendly and the service was excellent - so I cannot complain about that. It's just definitely not somewhere I'd go again. The pic is of the "display" at the entry way. Graduation theme?... More

We attended a family gathering here recently. The gathering was downstairs in a banquet room, not in one of the main dining areas upstairs. There were 3 food options provided, served plated, not as a buffet. Chicken parm, baked scrod, and chicken & steak tips. Amongst the members of my family seated together, we had all 3. The first two... More
