The baked tortellini rose marie has the potential to be a truly great dish but I had to dig for any sausage and found maybe 3 slices of mushrooms. I understand it’s a tortellini dish but the sausage and mushrooms were less than an afterthought...they were basically nonexistent. Leave off 3-4 tortellini and actually add sausage and mushrooms and it would be amazing. Sauce was good but I feel I didn’t get what I ordered.More

I went there for a take out pizza the owner is in the kitchen making the pizza's. It must be hard with Coronavirus in effect. They had hand Sanitizers on the counters, they offered it to people, the place was very clean and well managed...by the owner Maria. Great job team keep up the good work things will get better.More

My husband and I were there for Valentine's Day. It was busy and we were happy to wait at the bar next door. The manager (maybe..?) was very attentive and updated us frequently on the status of our table. We were seated outside (which is...what we asked for) but then forgotten about until I waived down one of the waiters. Other than that little mishap, it was all good and we had a lot of fun! ...Until we left and realized that our truck had been towed out of a lot just on the corner down from the restaurant! THIS LOT WAS NOT OWNED BY FAV'S! It was pouring rain when we pulled in and didn't see the private lot sign (behind a bush), as there were other vehicles in there too. There was however a sign that said the lot must be empty by midnight (for a Farmer's market event the next morning). We were back to the lot by 9:45 and it was gone! We got some info from a couple locals later on about this lot owner... So unfortunate that a local businessman has to be so greedy and target out of towners like that! Just wanted this info there to hopefully save you that hassle!More

Visited for dinner on a weekday. Both indoor and outdoor seating, very casual place with friendly service. They make their own sauce, pizza dough and bread, all delicious. They accommodated my allergy and made a substitution so I could eat pizza, and it really was...great pizza. The bruschetta with goat cheese was good, but not what we expected as it was pizza sauce, not fresh tomatoes. Very inexpensive wines by the bottle, so order one and take the rest home.More

My husband and I were vacationing in the area and looked for an eat-in pizza place with good reviews. I make thin-crust margherita pizza myself so I expected to order something at least as good. But it wasn’t. The crust is good, very thin and...crispy. The mozzarella cheese was not fresh and did not fully melt. It had no stretch to it. The basil was about three tiny pieces. This place needs to do something about their service. Very inattentive. Customers shouldn’t have to ask for water three times when the place is half empty. It’s not the worst place but it could be so much better. Location is great.More

I got the spaghetti and meatballs and I was happy with my choice. The bread however even tho it’s homemade it’s very dense. Don’t get the blue cheese dressing it is a bottled variety like kraft or something. The service was very S-L-O-W

Dined here with a party of eight. We were vacationing in the area and this place was listed as a local place in the resort guide. We were surprised to find a small restaurant but they have inside and outside seating. A variety of meals...was ordered ranging from lasagna, spaghetti and meatballs, manicotti and a few others. All meals were prepared very nicely and all enjoyed their meals. The prices and portions are very fair. We also enjoyed very friendly service during court meal. I will certainly not hesitate too eat here again when in the area and I will also recommend.More

My family and I came here to see an old friend and eat dinner. We all were very happy with our meals and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere! The service was amazing as well. Rebekah is a fantastic waitress!

We orderd a spaghetti with meatballs to go for $18! Small, awful, no bread or salad. Utensil was a small plastic fork, no cheese on the side! I want my money back!!!!!

They have a smaller menu than most Italian restaurants - they are the size of a cafe. But don't let that fool you - they have excellent food - and I'm pretty picky! If you're looking for eggplant parm because it's a... More
