“Good food, nice folks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2014

Went because of good reviews on this site. Was disappointed that there was no beer special until I realized that the domestic on draft is $2 all the time! Food was good. There were no discount lunch specials. Large portion of lasagna with plenty of cheese and chicken parmigiana sub was good too! And we ate outside!

“Surpisingly good Italian in North Carolina”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014

Having visited Italy many times, most recently in Le Marche and Sicily (this fall), we didn't expect too much from a place in a relatively small town in N. Ca. However, the house salad was romaine (and not iceberg), with grape tomatoes (not those cardboard ones) and even black olives - not kalamata, but still ... The olive oil was surpisingly good as we could tell from the golden green color. Although the wine choices were limited, we really couldn't fault the 1/2 liter of chianti, particularly for $8. Our choices were fettucine with meat sauce and eggplant parm with pasta. Both good enough to take back to the hotel (and we ate them this evening). The garlic bread was what you can expect at a place that serves pizza (not great but o.k. as garlic bread) as it was just the pizza dough baked, more or less. All this for $31. A good choice if you're in the neighborhood!

“Good pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2014 via mobile

The pizza here is delicious! The sauce has a little spice to it which is yummy!! We at in for dinner and got chicken Parm, which was very disappointing. At least we found a good pizza place!

“excellent Italian food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013

Fresh, nice atmosphere with a fully loaded menu, never saw so many Italian dish options! The baked Ziti is fabulous, and the Carbonera is the best we have ever tried.

“Excellent food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2013

We loved the food and service at this restaurant. While traveling through Rocky Mount we decided to use tripadvisor to find restaurants because we did not want to go to chain restaurants. This was one of our selections and it had great Italian food. I have been raving (in a good way) about it to friends all week. I had the Shrimp Parmesan and it was fantastic. Portions were huge; enought to take home if we lived close by. The staff was very attentive. I have an allergy. The waitress sent someone out to discuss the ingredients with me. Their Margarita was not made from a mix but juices etc - delicious too!. My husband enjoyed their wine list. The setting was not lavish but comfortable. Wish we were closer because I definitely would eat there again and again!
