Went here for dinner with my husband. Staff was friendly and attentive. The food was good and portions extremely large. We could have really shared one entree. Felt bad about wasting food as we were staying in a hotel and could not take leftovers with us.

The food is very good in this family-oriented Italian restaurant. We ate there twice as a family of six adults and four children and it was a real winner. We'll go back the next time we are in Galloway.

My husband & I were on our way home from Atlantic City & stopped here for breakfast. HOLY COW! I wish we lived closer. Really neat atmosphere. Super attentive waitstaff. Fabulous breakfast. My husband ordered an omelet. It was loaded & huge. He said it was one of the best omelets he's ever had. Even the home fries were crispy!... More

Have been there several times for breakfast. Both times everything was delicious. I especially loved the Eggs Benedict. They also have early morning breakfast specials if anyone is interested. Wait staff are very cordial and efficient.

This is for breakfast only. The cafe is a wonderful local joint but with charm. The breakfast menu is extensive, the portions generous and the prices very reasonable. And, oh yes, the food is very good. They took care of our very large group (with a reservation) flawlessly. We would stop by here any time we are in the area.
