“AMAZING”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

We have eaten here for almost every anniversary and many birthdays. We love the food. It can get a little noisy. Make reservations, it is almost always full. Order pizza out, it is amazing:)

“I almost don't want you to know about this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

I am not Italian, but growing up in MA, I have eaten my fair share of Italian food, especially red sauces. A friend suggested we drive up to Cameron Park to eat here, and holy happy mouth, this place is super! My partner enjoyed a chicken and pineapple pizza (note: the small is enough for two people easily), my friend had a fresh tomato and garlic pasta, and I had eggplant parm. The penne that accompanied it was perfectly cooked, as was the tomato sauce, and the eggplant itself was amazing. All with garlic bread to sop up the sauce. I brought half home, and spent the rest of the week's calories on a cannoli. YUM! I can't wait to go back and order more of everything!

“Exceptional place, exceptional people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

The owner Frank and his family have created a place that literally make you feel at home. From the moment you walk in the door you'll notice a friendly, inviting atmosphere. The food is authentic, delicious and with a wide range of Italian dishes and prices that will make your wallet as happy as your tummy. This is my Go-To place when family and friends come to visit from out of town. I would encourage anyone who loves good food to give this place a try.
