was here a couple years ago,knew the place was generations old but wasn't impressed then so i thought i'd give it another shot. i'll try to be balanced,but it won't come across that way.the wine was reasonable at 4 bucks a glass,but i noticed the glass was like 90% the size of a usual wine glass.now i know that seems picky,but it has relevance as you keep reading.
the service was adequate. no qualms there. the entree prices themselves seem somewhat reasonable,but they should because things are mostly ala carte ,other "side" prices i noticed,like a dinner salad ($1.75),blue cheese ($1.50 extra!),2 meatballs ($2.95) seemed all over the place,so besides the homemade spaghetti i ordered that included 2 meatballs for a reasonable $7.95 i believe,i opted to ala carte my way out of things by ordering one piece of sausage and an individual antipasto for ~$4.75 instead of a dinner salad for $1.75 plus $1.50 for the blue cheese.
hey,i'm a bigger guy that was starving for a good pasta dinner!
so i get the 2 thin slices of bread,one with the oily paint brush garlic spread like the other reviewer remarked about,which should have been a hint right there to cut and run,but "my" 4 dollar something antipasto arrived on like a coffee saucer sized plate! it had celery sticks and sliced carrots and peppers with like a tablespoon full of sliced olives on top with a couple pieces of pepperoni and a small slice of cheese buried underneath covered in dressing.not very impressive or tasty.i kept ordering bread which tasted fair,and kept eating it because they kept bringing it,lol.much to my anticipation my homemade spaghetti arrived! it wasn't spaghetti however it was linguini,but i didn't say anything.the portion was healthly,again the plate was smaller,the macaroni was a bit mushy.the meatballs were a decent size,but burnt.i realize some people do like them this way.the sauce,oh the sauce,it was sour.just disgusting to me.look,this is an Italian place,the sauce is the foundation of any italian joint right? i eat everywhere,anything,all the time,24/7,the last time i didn't finish my plate was over 50 years ago when i had chicken pox! it was just a huge disappointment to me once again.i left the food and tipped my waitress out,took off to Sopranos Market and ate some homemade bread with pepperoni on the ride home.
