The sauce is to die for. I generally get the veal parmigian with a side of spaghetti. Capellini available upon request. I have had the lasagne which is a heaping 5 layer mixture of deliciousness. Service is always great. Looking forward to my next visit...More

This happens to be an old relic, established in 1949, and still looks like that. It is comfortable and the staff is wonderful, however the look and feel should be updated without losing some of the "Old" feel. There were a few of us there,...More

This restaurant has very friendly staff. Their food is always delicious and they even make special dishes when asked for vegetarians. I love their Chicken French. I would definitely recommend visiting for great Italian food.

JewelryQ: I am amazed that you had this experience at the Northside Inn. I find this to be a WONDERFUL restaurant (having dined there at least 20-30 times), and have never had anything resembling "slow service and burned bread." I hope you are able to enjoy other restaurants without feeling this way. Please....enjoy life!
