I had pizza and salad and my friend had a meatball sandwich . We were pleased with the taste and price and old fashioned cuisine. Also the bakery is next door if you want to take home some great bread without bleach in the flour or chemical preservatives.

I didn't leave enough room in my bags for a whole loaf of bread, so was happy to see the wrapped sandwiches ready to go. Prosciutto and sharp provolone was still great almost 12 hours later! (Just keep it at room temperature)

We had a nice dinner. The atmospere is very casual. Food is good and very friendly staff particularly Robbie, the bus person. I had the calimari marinara which was a good and delicious portion. Some of the other dishes that we ordered and looked very good were: the shrimp scampi and the linguini with clams in a white sauce. Nice... More

Sandwiches are great as well as the pizza. Pizza is just like Grandma made for us when we were growing up.

The brunch menu was a good combination of breakfast and lunch foods with an Italian flair but I also had food at an event from the catering menu and that was outstanding. You can stop by the bakery for just a sandwich to take out or stay and eat in the restaurant and have a full meal.

In my opinion the best Italian bread in the entire US. If you LOVE bread baked in a coal fired brick oven get there at 7am when it starts coming out of the oven. Bring some butter, cheese or salami and enjoy a feast. the Doctor hit me with a helpful vote if you enjoy the bread.
