Always fresh and authentic, usually good service, great casual atmosphere in the old house with the deli counter in front. One of the best BYO's around!

this place was great! we came on saturday night to celebrate some birthdays. i had never been there before, but the rest of my party had.

first of all, the service was great. while our table wasn't ready, they offered us another table that was. everyone was super friendly, polite, and helpful. it feels like you're at your grandma's house. Old pictures on the wall and pretty intimate...it is a house after-all.

now for the important stuff- the food was FANTASTIC. i actually just ate the rest of my dinner for lunch today and it was just as good as it was on saturday night (eggplant rollatini for those who are wondering!).

i will definitely go back, and i highly recommend this place.

It's no joke that this place is definitely a step back in time. This old general store from the 1800's turned Italian restaurant looks like it has not changed much. I was a bit turned off when walking in and seeing folding chairs at the first table. Thank goodness I wasn't sat there. The dinnerware is something you would find at a garage sale. The apps are ok, nothing special. The dinner selection is good and prices reasonable. My dish of manicotti was undercooked and rushed to the table before app dishes were cleared. The place is BYOB which is nice. What isn't nice is that there is very limited parking and ladies beware of the dirt/ gravel lot in the back. You will destroy your heels. Nothing special about this place. Just felt very old and outdated with affordable Italian food.

The meals that were served at our table of six were all some of the most delicious meals we have ever had. The authentic Italian flavor was evident through and through. The manicotti were much like my Grandmother made. We had an enjoyable dinner with great service, reasonably priced, BYOB, can't miss.

If you are looking for a charming atmosphere with great food, this is your place to eat. If you are looking for elegance, china dishes and snobby waiters, keep driving.

We arrived Saturday around 12:PM. Actually, we were the first to dine. The restaurant inside is very old but it has a nice old fashioned charm. It’s built in a country store atmosphere, with antiques displayed all over giving you a nice relaxed feeling. We both enjoyed a Turkey sub with Swiss cheese & mayonnaise. Our subs were huge, filled with plenty of roasted Turkey breast. Overall, the service, food and atmosphere were good. We can’t wait to return.
