My wife and I were in the area walking and hungry. We have heard of the cafe but never eaten here. We stopped by, looked at the menu and gave it a try. They have a good selection of dishes including pasta, pizza, salads and sandwiches. They also list specials. I had the the mushroom and goat cheese pizza special.... More

An Italian cafe where you order at the counter. Guy at the counter was friendly and service is quick. Pasta and pizza both were pretty good. Will definitely recommend.

This is an old standby for an easy decently priced pasta,dinner. Order at the counter and your food,will be delivered. The specials are good as are the standards. This isn't fine Italian dining as far as the setting but we've come here over the years as have friends. It's a reasonable dinner at a reasonable price served by great people... More

I had hoped for a great meal based on friends' recommendations and some reviews. Maybe we just didn't order well. That happens. But, based on our meals, I was disappointed. We shared a pizza (tomato sauce, basil, cheese) and it was so average. The sauce looked like jelly. My husband ordered it on flatbread to my dismay which tasted like... More

In need of a decent gluten free options pasta place this was totally fine - nothing special but food came out quickly and portions were substantial. The GF pasta was actually tastier than the regular pasta our other kid had. It is a little pricey for the quality of food but we enjoyed having an outside table on a pleasant... More

I had a craving for pasta and found this little restaurant on Dickenson. The pasta was excellent and will be going back for sure.

This place has been recommended by a friend for years, largely for the dollar value, and we have never tried it. This trip we did, and the food was OK but not great. After all what did we expect? It is a very reasonable place for an inexpensive meal, and on that it delivered.

I had the baked penne NY style and it was 4 star good. My husband had the spaghetti and meatballs and liked it well enough but he preferred my meal. Super casual, family friendly and budget minded (although when I go to Hawaii I'm not really on a budget, I expect to pay a lot more wherever I go). However,... More
