For $26 you get soup or salad, pasta and main course with a glass of wine. The entrees have something for everyone. I had the chicken Christina which is chicken breast with artichokes and mushrooms in a brandy cream sauce. Absolutely delicious.

Old fashioned red sauce, table cloth restaurant with crooning piano player singer. Just what your aunt from Podunk fantasizes an Italian restaurant to be. Better food than Chef Boyardee and Valet Parking.

A long-time favorite, whether pizza or entrees. Service is very friendly and efficient. I was sorry to see their Tuesday evening buffet end in favor of unlimited pasta night.

There is a very nice Sunday brunch which includes everything from homemade omelets to pasta. Unfortunately, their website is under construction so I can't give you more details. My recollection of the price was $20 to $25... More
