The food is very good and her family are great people. They put a lot of heart and soul into their food. The main concern is making their customers happy and very satisfied. I highly recommend visiting this restaurant.

Don't waste your time. Food is average at best and overpriced. I do not understand how the Journal Gazette gave such a good review. The service was terrible since we were not locals were total ignored. The food was not good Italian at all. We drove from Fort Wayne -not a long drive but not worth the time or the gas to get there. Plenty of good places here.

I stopped here one night while on business. The service was great. I had the soup of the day, a small salad and the seafood lasagna, which was excellent. With a couple of glasses of wine the bill was about $37.00. The creamy rasberry salad dressing is so good you could eat it with a spoon.
if you are staying at the hotels by 69 - follow 15th street away from the highway and when you get to main street, turn right. This restaurant is just down a ways on your left.
It's worth finding.

Found this restauarant while driving back from Smoky Mountains due to Trip Adviser review. It lived up to the reviews. We were there for lunch. Small, cutely decorated. Great selection. Italian cuisine. Spaghetti and meatballs were very tasty. Homemade cheese ravioli was also very good. Very friendly service. Definitely worth the drive off the freeway.

On a recent weekend in Auburn, IN we were looking forward to a nice dining experience. First night out, Fri. night we ended up at a fast food place after the "nice" restaurant we were referred to was out of business! We asked the locals for a nice place to eat locally and were sent to a tavern. Not our idea of a nice dining experience. We looked across and down the street and found Sandra D's! The family owned and ran Italian food restaurant was just what we were looking for! Awesome service, amazing food and nice ambiance. Wake up Auburn and discover the hidden jewel in your backyard!
