This restaurant seems to be a family run restaurant with a close knit staff and quaint atmosphere. The portions are perfect and the food is very good.

eight of our friends came with us last night.I have been coming here since 1963. Two of the couples had their first experience. the entrees were fabulous. However, the greek salad took honors. the "small" salad that easily fed two . There were no negative comments from our group. we will alll return.

been going there since I was a kid; love it! Authentic, friendly.....the salad dressing is the best. And have the spaghetti and meatballs; simple, classic, filling. You'll need a to-go box!

Great value, great service, interesting history! Their lasagne is some of the best I've had, good sauces, a decent bargain. Try it again if it has been a while, you won't be disappointed!

The food was not high end, but it was pretty tasty. Nothing fancy, but if you want a good ol American type Italian, this food was great. The waiter was terrible terrible! I went there for lunch on a Friday. He was waiting on the tables to the right of the entrance. He did not give a rats about giving us a refill which is one thing, but the attitude he had was we did not belong there. Funny, as we pay his freakin wages. The rudest man ever. We gave him a tip-regretted that a lot. He needs to go...and next time I go there, I will get up and go elsewhere if he is my waiter.
