“Good value”
Reviewed June 2, 2012 via mobile

Working class relaxed atmosphere, cheap prices, average food. Nice people run this place, and you won't go away hungry. Not too far off interstate, better than most chains.

“excellent place to enjoy a meal!”
Reviewed January 16, 2012

Great italian restaurant where you can enjoy some original home made meals. Ambiance is not the greatest, but meals more than make up for it.

“Great traditional food at a great price!”
Reviewed December 25, 2011

A restaurant with two atmospheres:the first floor is bright and homey while the basement is more dimly lighted and romantic. If you can dodge the potholes getting there, you'll be happy you came.

“Charming; a great meal for the price”
Reviewed November 3, 2011

Stopped by while on a business trip and was totally charmed. It impressed me as a classic Italian bistro, unlike what I might have expected in a mid-sized college town. Some might say the décor is dated; I found it lovely and relaxing, similar to many I’ve seen in various parts of Italy. The menu was not too large, but with a reasonable selection of Italian entrees – heavy on pastas, and a variety of American dishes. I can’t speak for all the dishes but my veal scaloppini was delicious with a tasty sauce and plenty of yummy mushrooms though not a classicly authentic recipe. The house wine was tasty, service attentive but not overbearing. And the prices are, well, low. With the wine and tip, the total came to $20. Hard to be beat a fine meal for that price. It was not too crowded on a Thursday evening, with families, couples, and what looked like tables of friends out for a nice meal. I left feeling good not only about the meal, but the experience.
