“Always stop here when in Glenwood”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

Really neat atmosphere -- old school Italian restaurant feel. Great food at very good prices, that also come with a salad and a little gelato. During busy times you may have to wait for a table but it is worth it. A whole experience, not just dinner

We stopped in late and it was very busy but wait wasn't too long. Even though the waitress was very busy she carried on her duties with a smile. Wine by the glass was reasonable and cab was good.
We had chicken parmesan and it was tasty . The salad was crisp and predictable but dressing tasted like it might be made on site (which is always better). They serve thick warm bread and follow dinner with complimentary sorbet.
The place is truly underground and it is old down there so a fun atmosphere if you like rustic.

We finally found this restaurant and it was well worth the hour wait. There are shops to browse while waiting and is in a convenient location. The staff was terrific and the food delicious. The atmosphere is wonderful and even makes you feel like family.

“a little small, but arn't all the great places.”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

with the exception of the Cantaloni, all was GREAT! The Cantaloni was like a fair sausage wrapped in a Grand breakfast biscuit and then cooked. It was the only item were were not very happy with and it was NOT bad, but it was not as good as the rest of the food. The service was good, atmosphere was nice, all seemed to be happy and enjoying themselves. The bath room is up one floor, but that does not affect the food! Did notice a tall server looked like he had a ankle monitoring device on, might not want to let your credit card out of your site. Kitchen was open and we were able to see most of it, we like that, it make it hard to hid a bad operation. I will take my family and guest here without doubt....worth every dollar. The food was MUCH better than Vic's Road House Rip Off!

They have the best lasagna and the best fettucini alfredo I've ever tasted. The staff is super friendly.
