We took the family here and enjoyed our experience. It's not ideal for small kids, but they were still very welcoming. Service was great and so was the food.

Mama O's I call this place. I have never been disappointed buy a meal at this restaurant. I have given gift certificates to family and gotten nothing but good feedback regarding their visits. Cost versus food quality and quantity is excellent. But have a full bar with a pretty good wine list as well.

Great people, and even better food! Never disappointed with my selection. I'm there often and have experienced many items on the menu. My favorite is the Chicken Francese, my husbands favorite the spaghetti with meat sauce (better than your ordinary meat sauce).The portions are very generous.

Quality Italian food at a reasonable price. The staff is very attentive and the food is delicious. Don't forget to try the Arrabiata and the fresh baked garlic rolls. Yummy

Excellent food...friendly, attentive staff...good quiet atmosphere. Parking may be troublesome if on a weekend or early mid week but not the fault of restaurant, fault of city...minimal parking lots and street parking

Thanks for the awesome review. We feel your pain with the parking. It's usually not too bad but during the winter sometimes it's very difficult. I'm forwarding this review to the Mayor. He's been working hard to get parking in the area. It's all about money and also with building owners agreeing with his ideas. Which is always an obstacle!... More

We went for dinner - first time. It was very good! The wait to get dinner was over an hour because the kitchen was backed up, but once the food arrived it was very good and worth the wait. The prices were in line with other Italian places in the area. Make sure to make a reservation - or the... More

Thanks for the great review. It was a very busy night. We appreciate you waiting. It's really worth it. We make everything from scratch so when the restaurant is packed it might take awhile. Really appreciate the business! The DeGrassi Family Owners More

We dined here on a quiet, incredibly cold weeknight. I had the mushroom ravioli with Marsala sauce, and I must proclaim it the sauce the best I've ever had. The broccoli soup tasted great too. My husband and I found the service outstanding and the prices quite reasonable. If you want to escape the Italian chains, this is a great... More

Thanks for the great review. Don't worry about the Tic Tacs we have a lot of candy by the hostess stand so grab some before you leave. You will definitely need them... we love garlic! Thank you, The DeGrassi Family Owners More

We visited the restaurant last night and prior to arriving we were very favourably predisposed to anticipating a GREAT meal. The staff was on top of their game and attentive throughout the whole time we were there; high scores all around for service. The space is nice and somewhat cozy but loud due to the open floor plan and loft... More

Really sorry about the size of the Salmon. I'm not sure why it was 4 to 6 oz. We weigh everything and give abut 10-12 oz of salmon with every order. This is the same with our Red Snapper. It's actually the same for most of our meat and fish dishes. I am really sorry. As far as our prices,... More
