The eggplant was nice and thin and piled sky high. You can also order an eggplant sandwich to go. Good spaghetti sauce. Many Italian dishes at reasonable prices.

Some of the best Italian food around, simple atmosphere, (VFW Hall) good prices and my favorite Calamari by far, My one suggestion to beware of- don't demand friendly service, although not nasty, you will be disappointed. Still, well worth the visit
