I had the best veal parmigan! The portions are enormous, you could very easily share an entree. My husband had the linguine and clams and he loved it. While you are waiting to be served, you can go downstairs and visit the bar with their free Italian hors de overves.

I rated very good only because the waitress wasn't the best. Perhaps an off night for her, but food was excellent and desserts were great.

Great atmosphere, great food, great service and great location! Loved the "downstairs" area..great ambiance and very relaxing! We came here looking for a great meal and we were not disappointed. After a day at Cedar Point with 4 hungry adolescent boys, this was the perfect spot. Italian cuisine is our family favorite and my boys have high standards....we were thrilled... More

Came here on a weekday evening and there was only a few other people eating. The staff was very friendly and the portions were very large. The food was amazing! If you're in town and find you way here you will not be disappointed!

Best traditional Italian foo in Sandusky, The service is 5 star, authentic cuisine. The house salad and dressing are wonderful, pasta is cooked to perfection. I would choose this place first and foremost in Sandusky. House red and white are simple delightful You can't go wrong here.
