Classic spaghetti house and pizza. This is a vintage family restaurant with wild unusual decor and comfortable atmosphere. The place is always packed but service is still reasonably quick. Everything is fresh cooked and amazingly tasty. The best marinara I can ever remember eating. And the price is right for a served meal.

There is a reason Villa Nova bought the lot next door and expanded their parking.... tremendously popular, easy place to go with friends, family, children, and small groups. Seem to retain staff for years and years which contributes to family atmosphere. Food is consistently good.... in 15 years have never had an issue with preparation of a dish and dishes are consistent from visit to visit. Spaghetti with meat sauce and gnocci are personal favorites.

We had a party of 8 and everyone loved the place. We will go back when in town. The decor of copper pots was interesting but more importantly the food was great. The menu offers a wide selection and no one went away hungry. So glad we checked it out!

This is by far my husband's and my favorite Italian restaurant. It is a family owned informal restaurant with a very popular bar. The two are separated by a wall so it doesn't get too loud. The portions are large and our absolute favorite dish is the spaghetti with meat sauce which is not too sweet or chunky. A close second would be the lasagna. The wait staff is very friendly and have been with the restaurant for several years so I value their suggestions. Being a very popular restaurant, the challenge is to get seated within 30 minutes so our suggestion is to either arrive before 5pm or after 7pm especially on weekends.

If you are looking for upscale Italian this is not it. If you want family friendly large portioned comfort Italian, you have found the place! Food is always served hot and with good traditional flavors. They make their own blue cheese dressing. I am a fan of the lasagna and tortellini with chicken. The decor is eclectic based around a collection of cooper pots. We go here on a regular basis
