“Very Homestyle Italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2013

We were searching through Restaurant.com for local restaurants that participated and came across this one. We bought the gift certificate and headed out for a dinner for two. This little place is nestled in a small strip mall on the main coast highway, Rt. 9, next to a little Chinese takeout and a small convenience store that used to be a WaWa.

We arrived and the place was somewhat empty, but began filling up after we sat down. The seating is for about 35 so our early arrival helped. The menu was filled with normal Italian cuisine items, so nothing unexpected. We had our usual "taste point" dishes, Chicken Parm and Eggplant Parm. Both meals were served in less than 10 minutes and were absolutely tasty. Both of us had to take half home, it was far too much for a single sitting.

The waitress we had was likely the owner's wife or mother and represented the old Italy setting for sure. Not very talkative, but she was quick to seat us, serve us and take care of our dinner needs. Definitely looking to go back again.
