“Odd and overpriced with mediocre food”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

We went here based on reviews with a party of 7. We got a table quickly which is about the only positive thing to say. The service was unfriendly, the atmosphere stilted and the food overpriced for poor quality.

I get the feeling that this was once a good restaurant that has gone downhill.

“Welcome to FJL's Kitchen - Home Cooking”
Reviewed May 11, 2012

FJL is a local landamark offering straight-forward Italian food (nothing crazy or exotic because sometimes you're just in the mood for a really good lasagna). The staff treats you like family (thanks Danielle), making you feel welcome to relax over a leisurely meal. The servers are very attentive, refilling your water or iced tea on a consistent basis and checking in with you often but not too often. I have never had a meal at FJL that fell short...the food is always fresh, piping hot, beautifully plated and delicious. Personally, I'm a huge fan of the Chicken & Sausage Cannelloni but the New York Style Lasagna is amazing too. Try it all...you won't be disappointed!

This is a good place to take your out of town visitors. The food is good and the ambience is friendly.

“Good, hearty food that won't disappoint.”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

The whole menu from pizza, pasta, salads to calzones are very good. Price is not outrageous. Service is good. Would definitely be coming back.

“Great thin crust pizza”
Reviewed March 26, 2012

Great pizza - had an older couple next door for years, and if/when I wanted to give him a gift for watching the house on vacation or something, Frankie Johnnie and Luigi gift certificate just made his day. Tasty, classic Italian.
