Amazing quaint old style family run restaurant

We have been here several times over the last few years. The owner / operators do a great job of making you feel at home. The ceviche is my must have every time, it is fantastic. The dishes are always fresh and the sauces really compliment the entree. With no cork fee, this BYOB has little... read more

I have been dining here off and on for over twenty years. The food is delicious, the staff treats you like family. The gratis red peppers and garlic are the best, homemade soups, antipasto salad and too many delicious entrees to choose from. Quite a distance from where I live, but definitely worth the trip. The only thing missing was... More

This little gem of a restaurant in Bridgeport, Pa has amazing homemade Italina food. Gilda just recently took back the restaurant and boy does she make a difference. You don't have to go to Phila in the Italian section where they turned their house into a little Italian restaurant to get authentic homemade italian food. She's right here in Bridgeport,... More

We are experienced travelers having just spent a week in Italy and three weeks in Paris. The tomato sauce in this restaurant is to die for. It's appearance and taste could only mean it was homemade from fresh tomatoes, You must try the homemade sausage (no fillers), grilled Italian peppers and the hot bruschetta. The baked ziti is huge and... More

The food was delicious; I enjoyed the chicken marsala. Very good prices. Service was also fine. But, the restroom definitely needs a lot of improvement. Lots of street parking.

I threw up walking out the door in the plastic plants. We over paid, the entire party got sick. My 60 year old uncle has died, waiting on autopsy.

We went to this restaurant as a group of 5 on Saturday night. We were seated at a round table in what was the "kitchen" of the house with 1960 or 70 type of decor. The service was fine - but the food was absolutely not. The calamari was easily the worst we've ever had as well as the eggplant... More
