We always share our meals here, plenty for two. Always great. Always looks like a tornado just came thru, but once you dive into dinner...you'll forget about it. The place is small but you can call ahead for seats if you don't want to wait.

Don't order delivery! Poor phone skills. Actually rude and hung up on phone. Outdated credit card machines and does not know how to use them. Recommend Zeppe's

Nice little "hole in the wall" that gets absolutely packed for dinners on the weekend. Locals LOVE it. Very generous portions seems to be their calling card (along with very tasty meals). Authentic house made pasta sauce, salad dressing and fresh rolls. The Chicken Parmesan (lunch portion ) was more than most guys could eat in one sitting. Plan on... More

Unfortunately the huge portions are of extremely mundane Italian food. The pasta was over-cooked, the gnocchi was chewy, the red sauce was flat and nearly flavorless. But the meatballs were good. My wife had an artichoke pizza and the flavors on that were pretty good. The portions were so large, we all took home more than half the food served... More

Their Italian food menu and their pizzas are all very good. Excellent value and they offer full take out. Good for all occasions.

Small mom and pop shop but best Italian food in the area. Highly suggest anyone to come here. Portions are on the big side and you will probably have left overs the next day. Prices are reasonable.

It's not fancy, but I didn't come for ambiance. Sometimes I have to wait, but I knew that before I left the house. I didn't come because of the huge portions, which I end up taking home. I didn't come because of the ample parking outside. I came because the Italian food is great. The wait staff is terrific But,... More

Took the suggestion but not impressed. The place was dirty and smelled like a bar. Staff was not friendly in the greeting and the service was well less than expected. Extra charge for everything. Portions were not as expected and the food seemed to be heated in a microwave, As if they are premade in advance. Not fresh! Nothing special... More
