I've been here twice, once for lunch and once for dinner. Lunch is certainly the way to go, at least as far as portions go. For lunch, I had the Pannino Italiano sandwich ($9.95)--huge and delicious. For dinner, calamari ($11.95), buffalo mozzarella ($10.95), Caesar salad with chicken ($5.95+5), and Chicken Francese ($18.95). The calamari was very good but the serving... More

Great food in a pleasant place, and our server Jennifer was a delight. We came in quite late from a long road trip and she paid attention to us.

My kids eat better here than anywhere in the world, including my kitchen. The meatballs are great, drinks are decent. There is also a nice wood fire smell in the restaurant ( and actually outside in the parking lot) that I find pleasant.

Yes the menu has all the right words describing each dish, but what comes to the table is just one degree better than the average diner. Pro: loved the complimentary baked garlic bulb for the yummy bread. Con: the pasta side was terrible that came with chicken piccata. They must have gotten it from the leftovers from a banquet they...

Good food, good service. I would recommend this restaurant to people wanting good Italian food at a reasonable price. They have expanded to an outdoor patio which is enclosed for winter dining.
