“As a Chicagoan, I'm offended”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

First the good. Garlic bread was brought to the table, and it was warm, crisp and favorful. Unfortunately, that was the highlight of the meal. The salad was crisp, but unfortunately was drenched in Italian dressing so that by the time I was nearly finished there was a dark pool of liquid hiding the remnants, and the pungent vinegar flavor prevented eating them.

The lasagne consited largely of crumbled bits of meat that strongly resembled dog food, but I suspect that dog food would be better tasting.

The Chicago style pizza was burned on the edge, but doughy and undercooked in the center. Not what I remembered from my days in Chicago.

I guess we were warned. When we entered there were two half finished pasta plates on an empty table at the front, and only one other table had customers. Not surprising, as this is not the sort of place anyone would give a second try.

“Very Good as long as it stays Italian”
Reviewed January 31, 2012

The owner tried to change and be all things to all people, a flop, food average, service below par, but when he changed back to Italian and rehired the chef, the food was truly Italian again.

“Italian?”
Reviewed December 30, 2011

I ordered chicken fettucine, and was rewarded with a plate full of noodles, drenched in what looked like a combination of wondra, grated garlic, and melted butter. People in past reviews often commented on the fact that there were often lots of open tables. Hmmmmm, I wonder why? People were friendly, but I usually don't go out to eat in order to try and make friends.

“Decent restaurant and prices especially for Juneau”
Reviewed October 1, 2011

Had reasonable prices and hours. The portions were fairly hearty and well done, went there twice because of this. Fairly varied menu as well.
