We had the calzone and spaghetti with meatballs. The calzone was huge, and the meatballs were wonderfull! The garlic rolls are mouth watering! The atmoshphere was great, and the price couldn't be beat! Will eat there everytime we visit!!

The Bloody Mary's here are awesome and the food portions are huge! Everything on the menu is great. Must try this place out.

Food is average at best. My spaghetti was noodles & Prego sauce, garlic knots were frozen rolls w/to much garlic sauce. Over priced for the taste.

My wife and I had read glowing reviews of this dirty dump and were deceived into giving it a try for lunch. We were seated by a surly spiky blonde sourpuss who reeked of noxious cigarette smoke. The bored-looking inbred waitress forced a fake smile and muttered that she would be right back with our water. Ten minutes later she finally returned with our water, splashing mine onto the table with an irritated scowl before scurrying off through the half-empty dilapidated dining room to the noisy kitchen in the far back of the building. We were seated in a cramped corner booth next to a table which was filthy with food scraps and crumbs(and which was never cleaned the entire hour we endured this dump). Several more minutes passed before our order was taken. We chose the chicken parmesan sandwich and the meatball sub. Twenty five minutes later the food arrived, lukewarm and stale. The chicken in the chicken parm was dry and almost burned. The curly fries with it were cold and greasy. Just disgusting and so disappointing! My meatball sub was lukewarm as well and the tiny meatballs tasted as if they were made from sawdust. The sauce was salty with an unpleasant canned aftertaste. Nothing homemade about it. A barely palatable mediocre mess that would be an insult to serve to a stray dog. Lastly, the atmosphere was badly dated in the early 70's. There was enough dust build-up on the tarnished brass railing that you could almost write your name in it. In addition, there were grease splotches on the frosted glass partition attached to the railing by our booth and food crumbs on top of the wood panel. Please be warned friends: do not be suckered into trying this dirty, run-down dump and wasting your hard-earned money on terrible service and bad food!

Another good meal at Best Italian. Usually we eat dinner here, but did lunch this time. Garlic rolls and salad excellent. Ate on the outdoor patio by creek. Always pleasant and great food!
