“One of the worst meals ever had”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

Don't bother wasting your money. I honestly do not know how they stay in business. I hate to be so critical but frozen food is better than anything we had. The marinara sauce had no flavor, the chicken in my dish was like rubber, the chicken for the kids was overcooked and they wouldn't eat it. The glass of wine we ordered tasted as if the bottle had been open for some time. Just plain awful.

“Be Ready”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

1st of all. This is a place where the tables are scratched and the finish is worn off. They only have 2 booths. A party of more than 2 has 2 tables pulled together and if you order a soda it comes in a plastic bottle. Now if you don't mind that...we absolutely loved it! Enormous portions, everyone took some home! Food was great! I got the lasagna, where I usually go for the stiff standup kind and this was the soupy one. It was outstanding with lots of cheese and meat. I enjoyed every bite. Everyone else loved their dishes also. They don't skimp on anything! Sauce included. Service (Carol) was very friendly. I only saw one waitress and she kept up with everyone. They did a ton of take out from what I saw. Not well lit on the outside and kinda hidden. If you don't know where it is your gonna go right by. Great little hole in the wall place.

“Best Italian food on the south shore .”
Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

Margarita pizza is awesome. We eat here 4-5 times per week. Tried everything. Never disappointed. Eat at the bar or waterfront seats..nice ! Steak dishes barely fit on the plate. Try the steak atlantica ( chef pours shrimp scampi all over a steak, mashed potato, and veggy plate..unreal) . Chicken parm feeds me 3 times for $9.99. Traditional Italian pasta dishes are the best I ever had. Chicken cacciatore and shrimp pesto are to die for ! This place is the biggest secret on the south shore. If you want a new favorite spot..this is it !!!!

I like the restaurant, especially the location. The food is just not that good.

“How Do They Stay in Business?”
Reviewed July 29, 2011

Have eaten there twice. There is never anyone there, like 2 or 3 tables at 6:00 on a Saturday. Same thing at lunch. It is just a glorified sub shop. This place sells pizza slices. What a waste of an obviously expensive renovation.
