Referred by friends and did not disappoint. First time visit because I always thought it was just an ice cream shop...to the contrary about 10 tables in the back serving Italian ( and I mean homemade pasta and fresh sauce) along with traditional diner food....More

A great place to grab a quick lunch or dinner. Family friendly location with freshly prepared food. The typical hot dog, burgers and fries are available but they also offer full dinners and a nice variety of daily specials.

Always stopped for great ice cream, but was so surprised how how great the Italian food was. The Lasagne was terrific and their subs were amazing. Great quality for the money also. Next going to try fish dinners.

I often take my grandkids here for lunch and ice cream. There is a nice variety of well-prepared food kids find appealing and fair prices. Friendly but not always speedy service. Ice cream is delicious.
