“Uh- No Thanks”
Reviewed 15 March 2014 via mobile

The staff was friendly, but the friendlieness can't make up for average to below average food. The owner boasted to our group about how everything was homemade and so very fresh and tasty. He needs to read the Trip Advisor reviews and realize that not many agree with his assessment. Marinara was average, at best. Read the menu carefully as they charge extra for certain types of dressings on the salad--really, never experienced that before. Find another place, it will be pretty easy to do better.

“Nice staff but that's about it.”
Reviewed 1 February 2014

All of the staff was very nice. They sat us downstairs in the wine cellar which was very nice, aside from garbage in the wine bottle candle centerpiece. I ordered the lasagna and it was not very good. It came out slightly room temperature and there was way too much meat in it. My boyfriend ordered the prime rib special and he said it was disgusting. It tasted like they threw it on the grill which is not good for prime rib. He also got a side of spaghetti with it and like another reviewer said, it had no sauce on it. My son ordered a Stromboli and the crust was very good but the insides were basically all cheese. We ordered Tiramisu for dessert and it was delicious. I really liked the hospitality but unfortunately I would not eat here again.

“Guaranteed better than average.”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

A good reliable Italian restaurant which has been at this location for 50+ years. They offer a typical menu of American and Italian dishes. Everything is very good but nothing special. The wine cellar is very inviting but a little noisy.

“Great Bread!”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

Got take out. Bread and butter was best, bread fresh. Spaghetti is real thin, like angel hair. Not much sauce over pasta, dry. Salad was good with Italian dressing. I'm sure thus is a popular place with the locals. Seems like it's been around a long time. Get the bread!

“Nice Restaurant at very reasonable prices.”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

This was a very average place to eat at very reasonable prices. Nice staff with a clean but little dark atmosphere. The salads were fresh and the food was tasty. You will be happy with the friendliness of the staff and the service is very timely. The portions are nice so you will not go away hungry. Overall it is a good small town dining experience.
