The food here is pretty typical of what you would expect from a mid-level Italian restaurant. Nothing special, but it feeds you. The major problem is the in fighting of the co-workers. It's obvious to the average diner. Looks like nothing has been done to the restaurant in years and it's in desperate need of updating.

Took a Sunday afternoon ride around Lake Wallenpaupak and stopped for dinner. We use to eat here quite frequently over 5 years ago. Place was somewhat remodeled since we last dined here, casual atmosphere. Food was about the same, pretty good if you order Italian, i.e.., Eggplant, or a Parmesan choice. I did get 2 fruit flies in my wine,... More

My Dad and I and our neighbor Sandy went to see Gloria Kaye and her daughter DJ Colleen do Country Night at Zallunutte's Lounge. We had appetizers, the Italian Sampler and the Nacho Fries. I think next time we'll have the hamburger and fries from the bar menu, which is a bargain, but we had dinner before we left home,... More

The service is good. Portions of well made Italian food are appropriately priced and there is a large menu. Yes, it is a little worn but that is not important to locals and travelers.

This is a "plain Jane" restaurant catering to both locals and travelers from the nearby Route 84. They offer large portions of well made Italian food. Service has always been good and the prices are appropriate. Free refills on drinks help keep the bill down.

We were traveling on 84 and looking for some lunch. Ended up here. We had wonderful omelets. Very tasty with fresh vegetables. Roasted potatoes were delicious, we like them on the crispy side and the accommodated us. Inside decor and bathrooms needed to be refurbished but the food is good.

We had the veal parm and the chicken parm, neither was exceptionally great. They came with half a loaf of bread, which was nice, but I would have preferred some garlic bread or bread sticks. The chicken was a little dry, but the pasta and sauce were ok. My husband said the veal was mushy. The service was good, no... More

We some times frequent here as they usually have decent food. They have pretty good pizza and our bill is usually the same. Last night we went and our bill was very expensive for 4 slices of pizza and wings and on top of that the waitress wasn't the best. She over charges us for stuff we get often. The... More

They had whole wheat and gluten free pasta choices. Service was a bit slow but the food was good and plentiful. We'll go back.

Quick eats if you are local but not worth traveling to. Average would be the best way to describe this place. The interior is OLD and outdated but again this is NOT a fine dining establishment. The food is ok and you will not feel robbed.
