Our extended family included our 97yr old Italian patriarch visited here for lunch. The place was quite bustling but service was awesome. Our server was so busy but took care of the repeated absurd requests of our great grandfather with patience and grace! The food was amazing. The plates were huge and fresh. Bread was divine and the bowl was... More

Wroth a soy allergy, I can easily enjoy 90% of their menu. Everything is fresh, bread made every day, lasagna amazing and huge, eggplant and Stuffed Greek my wife's faves. Turkey and steak sandwiches awesome. Kim at the bar is great, waitresses good. Love it here, visit weekly.

We usually come here for the thin crust whole wheat pizza! First we share a large Greek salad and the pizza for dinner. It's perfect for the 2 of us. Although, I have to say, the calzones are great too. Many other Italian dishes to choose from. Very reasonably priced! Great service too.

OJ/Peachtree Schnapps had NO taste and no booze! Chicken Parm sandwich was tasteless chicken with a spicy sauce on a torpedo roll. The atmosphere gave me recollections of restaurants form the 70s. Just bad!

Save meals like veal parm for Federal Hill....The veal was tiny and pasta overcooked. Go for the pizza and calzones....salads are good too. Martinis excellent although bar service was a bit slow. Waitress was very nice.

Stopped in here for the first time on our way to hear a little music. Couldn't have landed in a better place. The food was fresh, fresh, fresh and amazingly affordable. Outstanding sausage, ricotta and broccoli calzone. My husband had meatballs and sausage with penne and practically licked the bowl. The staff was attentive and friendly.Owner Ric Campanella is in...

If you like good Italian, go here. It has always been great every time that we go there. The pizza is good and the various pasta dishes are special. They have great meatballs to go with your pasta . The atmosphere is friendly and the prices are reasonable. There is always a crowd and for a good reason. They are... More

You don't need to go to the Hill for a great meal at reasonable prices, just stop in here to this longtime neighborhood place. Used to live nearby and eat here all the time, 15 years ago. Stopped in last night and was wowed by the new look and a bar no less. But, the big thing was the service... More

If you are in for Italian affordable food, this is the place!!!! Any of the multiple options they have are good. They offer 3 different dough, chose the plain one if you want to feel the basic traditional flavor, if you are in for something extra try the 7 grains option. One of the best dishes they have is the... More

The Campanella family takes great pride in preparing the freshest homemade pizzas, pastas, calzones, salads, and so much more! The family starts each morning making their white, whole wheat, and mutigrain dough which is what makes their gourmet pizzas, calzones, heavenly breads, and rolls.

As soon as you enter their comfortable neighborhood restaurant, you will be tempted by the delicious aroma from the family's homemade tomato sauce simmering on the stove, the veal and eggplant frying, and the perfectly seasoned chicken breasts being baked.
