“Disappointed by Service”
Reviewed December 23, 2011

I'll keep it short and sweet. No toilet paper in the restroom. Empty parm cheese shakers on the table. EXTREMELY loud in there. Each table is competing with each other just to talk. Don't go there for a relaxing and calm night out. Appetitzers brought out with my salad. 1/2 of the onion rings were burnt. Never got a refill on my Coke. Quality was just ok. I've been to better Italian places w/ better "home cooking". Won't be back.

“True Neighborhood Italian Restaurant”
Reviewed September 14, 2011

A fun friendly family owned neighborhood restaurant. The food is true Italian and very reasonably priced. The staff is very friendly and makes you feel like your one of the family.

“Good mid-level Italian-American food, family owened; support a local tradition, not a chain!”
Reviewed July 21, 2011

Decent Italian-American food. Not going to blow your socks off, but good traditional Italian-American food with a good local family tradition. Go here instead of Olive Garden or Mac Grille, support a local business. You could become a regular here and get to know the people working here. That is not going to happen at a chain.
