4 star dining in a casual atmosphere. Can't go wrong with any cheesy selection.

The food here is always great. But the hours are very limited. Check to be sure they are open when you want to go. The Frittela is their specialty except I would skip the dessert fritella its just dough and canned syrup. Pasta is excellent and they have a small salad bar.

Like this laid back atmosphere and the food is good. Maybe a little too formulaic..... but still good.. decent margaritta pizza, decent wines.... nice looking desserts.

Forego Olive Garden and those cliche italian places and experience an authentic local restaurant. Adriano grew up in his father's family restaurant in Italy, came to America (Houston) and then here. He still prepares the food the same. Great food, relaxing atmosphere and off the beaten path...we love it !

This is one of our favorite Italian restaurants, and it's family owned which is a plus in a town of chains! I never get the same thing here whereas at other restaurants I go for one specific menu item. It's all good Fritella. I'm partial to the fettucine alfredo, the chicken scallopini, the meatball sub, etc... My husband always gets the pepperoni Fritella, a lightly fried pocket pizza, or a cracker thin Margherita pizza. And they have THE best salad bar, and coffee, and dessert. Am I raving?

The exterior and interior are inviting and since it has counter service, it's a great place to go with friends or co-workers so you don't have to waste time splitting the bill. Take a break from the chains and try it out!
