“Not the same ...”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

I have been here probably 10 to 15 times and never really had a problem. The food was good, and the bread was delicious! Service has always been hit or miss. Just dined there yesterday and I am pretty sure it will be the last. The service was horrible, our server was double stacked and really didn't care. Our food was warm at best and the meat tasted like it was old. Manager at the front is just a hat rack. We weren't a large group, but she could not understand that 4 wanted water and one wanted tea. ALL FIVE GOT COFFEE!!! Besides the shoddy service, the food is not up to par. The cheap prices drive you in, but the reheated Chef BoyRDee will drive you away.

“Very tasty food”
Reviewed January 7, 2013 via mobile

Enjoyed dinner here for the first time. For starters the Johnny Bread with dipping sauce was very good. Then the Bruschetta appetizer was also very good.
Lasagna was excellent! Will come back

“Excellent early bird and lunch specials”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

This place is great! Excellent casual italian. You can order a plate of HUGE manicotti for $5.95 served with soup or salad and Johnny bread for lunch. The early bird dinner specials are a little more, but not much. Dinner doesn't cost more than $10. The portions are huge.

This place has a mixed crowd of yound people, families and seniors. AWESOME food. I have never had a bad meal here.

This is one of the best Italian restaurants in the Bay Area. the Johnny bread is great as are the entrees too. The price can;t be beat. Go early so you can get a seat.
