Best eggplant parm ever! All the food is amazing, the building is old and dated but clean. Service is average. Definitely worth a stop if you're in the area.

Good Italian food. Haven't been there for awhile. Owner (lady) almost like the soup Nazi on Seinfeld. She's yelling at the workers in front of customers. We asked for plates for our bread & were told no! Who wants to put their bread directly on...More

Food is always excellent. Sauce is tasty and the veal is the best in Western NewYork. It's a can't miss meal every time.

The owner is as horrible as they come...she tries to take your change or not give you the proper amount. If you leave a tip for the waitress at the front when you pay, the owner pockets it! She was loudly talking about my family...More
