Im a rather large guy, 6'1 and about 300 and I have all but one time taken home leftovers. Ive never left hungry, and ive never been disappointed. There... More

We've been eating here for several years and it never disappoints! Great food and the Garlic Rolls are to die for! Take some home if you can! Usually not a long wait, but probably is during peak season. Go Anyway!

Great family dinning. The combination pizza is the kids favorite. I enjoy the huge combination calzone. This calzone is made for two people because it is that big. The place is not fancy by any means but the food is certaily good. We recommend to request for outside dinning because it is located near a stream that difinitely makes the... More

This is a friendly place. We sat at the bar area to place our order to go because this is what they told us to do. I felt awkward doing this with kids so was going to take them elsewhere and they told us to stay and offered our kids soda or lemonade and asked them how they were and... More

Took Itallian friends here between Christmas and New Year's. As always the food was great and even impressed them. It has not been affected by the fires all around the area and in fact the main drag is pretty much in full operation, so we were glad to go and support the economy of the area. The rolls swimming in... More

We enjoyed their salad and garlic rolls! Their pizzas and calzones are awesome! I got the shrimp Alfredo, the shrimp were over cooked, but the Alfredo was very good!

The rest of us liked their entrees as well we had chicken picatta, chicken permesann and spaghetti and meatballs. Tho only complaint I heard was the sauce needed salt. Overall, a good option...
