A group of five went there for a business lunch. We were the only people in the place. Still, service was not attentive. We all ordered very commonplace Italian dishes such as chicken parmesan and basic pasta dishes. Nothing was standout. The food didn't come...More

So I went to this place for lunch. The place had about 5 tables in the front dining area that were waiting for their food. I was seated near one of the huge windows. Within a few minutes the heat was not tolerable. Mind you,...More

Me and wife and kids all love this place. Just to be clear, this is not the chain restaurant that most people know, but a hometown, privately owned eatery. A little pricier than most options in town, but well worth the money. I get the...More

The waitress was extremely friendly. But the food! My husband loved the spaghetti and meatballs, and I had the shrimp lancianese! They were both delicious! The garlic bread is amazing. We will definitely come here again!

Cloth tablecloths and metal flatware do not make up for skimpiness of portions and high prices in my book. One cannot eat atmosphere. I was willing to give them a try and then a retry but not any more. I do not expect to eat...More

We both had lasagna plus a small salad. Lasagna was very good and had a variety of cheeses with a nice balance of sauce. The portions were big enough where one would have been enough for both of us, but I managed to eat most...More
