Food was delicious. There was not a long wait for it either. Service was fantastic. Easy pit stop when traveling. There is an outdoor arbor for eating which I am sure is beautiful in the summer. Would definitely stop again.

While traveling to the local area, my wife and I stopped in about ten minutes before closing. The staff was more than happy to welcome us in. The pizza was very good, hot and cheesy with a crispy crust. At no time did the staff make us feel rushed or hurried. We have been back several times since and haven't... More

It is so nice to have a really authentic Italian restaurant in our small city. No need to go to Raleigh or to pay the high prices found in the larger city. The food is prepared after order, is wonderful in taste and presentation. The cost is modest and you never go home hungry. Pasta, soups and pizza are all... More

This visit was to get takeout pizza but have been for table service many times. The pizza was hot as it should be and very tasty. Only negative was cash register confusion.

Decided to stop here one evening on my way back to the hotel. Ordered spaghetti and meatballs. Really good and lots of it! Some of the best I have had on my trips up here to North Carolina. Will definitely stop in again.

The fettuccine Alfredo was delicious and my husband ordered a meatball sub with fries. Atmosphere so cozy and dim.

We went there for dinner for the first time and we will definitely be back! The salad was delicious, it was simple but fresh (with romaine lettuce) and just the right amount. We had the ziti carbonara and the stuffed shells both were cooked just right. The portion sizes were good. The service was excellent!

This Italian Restaraunt has a great selection and everything is very good. The prices are reasonable and the portions are large. I had a white pizza that was excellent and my husband had the lasagna which he said was very good. Not far off of I 95 this is a great place to stop.
