Called for reservations and got an answering machine saying they didn't take reservations, just show up. We did and it was dark with a sign saying closed for renovations. Change your recording please!

Three of us went for dinner. One had veal marsala, one had eggplant parmesan and I had spaghetti with meat balls. The report of the veal and eggplant were both very good. My spaghetti was perfectly cooked. The sauce was tomato based with pieces of sausage and meat ball. The extra meat balls I ordered were a bit dry so... More

This is a small place. Reminds us of a small place back in Dallas that is also very good. All the staff are great. The place is so busy and small but the folks here still make it a pleasant experience. If you don't do small places then just don't go here. But for what it's worth... they make great... More

The cheese and spinach manicotti was excellent with the meat sauce! With much Italian food experience this ranks near the top. The daily special KP Lihue Cioppini was incredible....flavor top notch...just needed pasta do we added that!! Nice atmosphere also....on main highway/road too. Can't miss this place!!!

We went here after a long day of touring waiting for our 10:45 pm flight. It was a friendly, cozy place full of people. We had a nice salad and two plates of pasta, pesto and capellini, just what we needed for our long flight home. Reasonably priced but a bit noisy. Only 5 Minutes from the airport!

Great service, easy location, cozy place, unbelievable food. I got the fettuccini alfredo and Caesar salad to start. Everything we ate from starters to entree to dessert (warm apple cobbler) was perfectly prepared and a much welcomed cozy meal during a cooler evening.

We were looking for anything we could find. The traffic was really backed up which was a good thing because we were driving slow when we saw this place. We were here for lunch. I had the ham and onion panini and my husband had the Alfredo pasta. Both were delicious but what I really liked was the balsamic used... More

We had a nice, quiet, and tasty dinner. Good options for my wife who has to be gluten free, thanks. Nice staff and we also enjoyed the chocolate creme brulee.
