“Great food, poor service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2013

We decided to try this place since it was listed on Trip adviser as #1 place to eat. The restaurant is located next Olive Garden. We walked in and the hostess was happy and friendly. Once we were seated it took a bit for our waitress to wait on us. She wasn't very knowledgeable about the food and she had poor attendance to her tables. We did see a waiter that was very knowledgeable about the food and had recommendations. He also was great on keeping an eye on his tables! We also noted that the manager was around but he never addressed anyone in the restaurant. The portions were extremely large....we could not eat the portions. If you visit the restaurant, you can split the meal between two people easily. The food is well worth the visit!

“Great neighborhood Italian!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

I can still taste the garlic from those yeast rolls, yum! This is a great little spot, unpretentious and welcoming. Portions are generous and the food is authentic Italian.

“Love those garlic rolls!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2013

Great little Italian restaurant. Stopped off while spending the night in Kennesaw. Read Trip Advisor and decided to try it. Had a big basket of garlic rolls upon being seated. Yum! We enjoyed the pasta and chicken parm. Will stop again.

“Got to try a dessert”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2013

Food is always good...The desserts are something else...get a cup of coffee and a dessert that is a complete meal.

“Best around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2013

This gem has the best Italian food around. Have had many dishes from the menu, lunch and dinner and it is always excellent, really attentive service and a good value for our family. My wife craves the Linguine & Cardinale sauce, I am more of a Stromboli or Calzone guy- with a left over for later that evening. The Lasagna, Meatballs and Ravioli are all excellent choices and a chocolate chip cannoli with coffee is a nice way to end the meal.
Enjoy!
