Busy family friendly...read lots of children...restaurant. Friendly wait staff. But, the food and wine is mediocre. We tried 2 red wines, neither was particularly good..drinkable yes. And the large antipasto salad..which can easily feed 4..is mainly iceberg lettuce, lots of olives, mushrooms that appear out of a can..and stringy tasteless mozzarella. We shared the lasagna..again it can easily feed 2..the... More

Been coming to this place for more than 30 years. They've always had good service and the food is good for Italian. Ordered TO GO; the large ravioli red sauce, small salad and waffled on the garlic toast, thought it came with the meal, this is Italian, isn't it?? Grab and go, have other things to do. Get back, settle... More

Portions are huge. The half portion entree is ample for most people as it comes with a salad and a pasta. Gluten free options that are well made. We had the chicken parmesan and chicken catchitore. Both were excellent. Charlotte was am excellent server. Would eat here again!

I have yet to find a pizza that I like better than Sir G's. The crust is so delicious and they use lots of cheese and not too much sauce. Just the way I like it!

If you have a group and looking for something everyone will like then order the pizza. Being from Chicago, I can not recommend anything with the red sauce. All I want to do it re-do it. The house salad is delicious. Lots of crisp lettuce with homemade mozzarella on top, and at first you look at it and wonder, but... More

Every year we make Sir G's our pre-trip meal. The food has an authentic taste all its own. Any time I eat Italian I compare it to Sir G's and very few make the grade.

Just enjoyed a week in Ely for Blueberry Festival and took the family here for dinner. We polished off both of our pizzas we ordered, they were so good. Even my 2 year old granddaughter loved it, def best pizza in town! 🍕

My husband and I ate here on a recent visit to Ely. My husband had the ravioli and I had the cavetelli. My husband is Italian and really loved the homemade pasta and red sauce. The large portion is really huge...I had to take half of it with me to eat the next day. But, it was really delicious.

Rating restaurants in isolated places like Ely is difficult: do you expect what you would have at home, or do you recognize that getting the ingredients, the cooks, and the ambience is really hard when most customers, at least in summer, are there for a night before or after their canoe trip, and would eat almost anything? I've been going... More

Honestly If I didn't know any better I would have guessed our dinner was prepared my them! Bland. From garlic bread, to salad, to 4 meals... Nothing was good except the dinner rolls and I'm guessing they were pre bought! Don't waste your money!
