The food was very average, nothing special. But that wasn't the bad part. Our waitress was too concerned with flirting, being on her phone and taking smoke breaks to help us. It took us forever to get our check and for them to process it. There was a waiter that was helpful, sadly we didn't have him.

Have eaten here several times. Menu has familiar Italian pasta dishes, pizza, calzones and sub sandwiches. Pizza is very good, portions are large. Service is acceptable and restaurant is clean and comfortable. Prices are average but tend to be high if you add extras such as meatballs, salad, extra bread sauce or salad dressing. Overall a pleasant dining experience.

Food was very good. This is obviously the favorite restaurant of the locals. Excellent service. Prices mid range, but large portions.

We've eaten here several times over the years as it's one of the few restaurants in the area that has stayed open for more than a year or so and is convenient to where we stay. It's a privately run restaurant with generous portions and reasonable prices.No, it's not 4-star, but the food is satisfying and consistently good.

We ordered a pizza and spaghetti. After what seemed like a half hour, The pizza arrived at our table but not the spaghetti. The waitress said it should be arriving soon. So, we decided to go ahead and start on the pizza while it was hot. It was terrible. Tasted like tomato sauce on a soggy cracker. 15 minutes later... More

We have eaten here many times over the years and have always left full and satisfied. The food is excellent, the service is great and the prices are very fair. It has become a family tradition for the summer and winter!!!

The food was very average, nothing exceptional, we had a cal zone, Fettuccine Alfredo, and chicken Parmesan sub. We could have just left feeling underwhelmed by this but, what really makes this review such a low score was the fact that my husband witnessed the cook leaving the restroom without washing his hands (he was in there at the time)...

My wife and I split medium size pizza. The pizza was OK, not the best pizza we ever had, but something we enjoyed sitting outside on patio drinking a bottle of red wine. Our wait person was a teacher from TN working summer in this place, a very nice person, but not someone who could explain anything on the menu... More

Restaurant was clean. Service was good. Food was good. Seemed to be a favorite of nearby golfers. We didn't use the drive-through but that was an added convenience.

I try to eat here at least once a month when I'm nearby. The food is great. Portions are very sufficient. The only area they seem to lack at is the service. I'm glad they stay busy and I know it is challenging to keep good staff so I'm not sure what the fix is. Be patient and it will... More
