We were here recently on a Friday night. We enjoyed the live music downtown Waukesha offers during the summer on Fridays. We decided Italian food sounded good and my family was pleasantly surprised at how good everything was. The garlic bread is awesome! It was super busy with all the outside activity going on but the staff did an awesome... More

I would say this is mostly average Italian fare, but they hit it out of the park with their garlic bread.

We stopped here after a long day. We were tired, hungry and a bit cranky. The staff was so nice. The food was way better than we expected. The garlic bread was the best I've ever had. This place is a gem.

Nice old time feel Italian restaurant. Good pizza, but the garlic bread is the best around! Great place for the family or a quite dinner for 2.

Excellent Pizza and don't miss the garlic bread! Garlic butter just drips off the crispy bread. This restaurant has been family owned for a couple generations and has a great reputation in Waukesha and the surrounding area. We have eaten there many times over the years. for lunch and dinner. Always great food and service. Parking is not the best... More

Great lasagna, nice bar, friendly staff, and killer garlic bread. What's not to like? Usually just get to-go but the food is just as good at home as it is in the dining room.

Great lasagne. We always get one order and split it. Nice salad and love the butter soaked bread. Service has always been great. Never a problem getting seated. Plenty of room.They opened their doors to us for a funeral on a monday when they are closed. Great owner and staff.

awesome place, like walking into a restaurant in Italy (and we were there), from the waitress, the wine special 'Pinot Noir' and the garlic bread (if you like it dripping with butter and EVOO) and the cheesy lasagna - it was a class act. Highly recommend it. Much like Mama Mia's but better.
