Our club booked a room here for a holiday dinner. They served a sampling of traditional Italian dishes and desserts. The service (given the crowd) was good and personable. The food was "fine" if not memorable. I am not sure that I would seek this...More

Five of us recently went for dinner. Three of us shared two different pizzas while the other two each had the chicken marsala dinner. Prior to the main course we shared a huge salad which was quite good. It contained a variety of ingredients. Bread...More

My family & I (5 adults with hearty appetites) ordered the large antipasto salad, baked ziti, lasagna with Italian sausage, eggplant parmigiana and a 16" "special" pizza.

This place is a landmark. You know to come here for the pizza and the marinara sauce..yum yum and consistent. The only downfall is it really needs to be remodeled. It is really showing its age making take out a more pleasurable experience.

This restaurant has been a family owned restaurant for many years. In all of our visits, the staff has always been friendly. The food is homemade and does not taste like chain food. My favorite is their pizza, always good. They have a good selection...More

There is nothing franchise or chain about this place. No gimmicks. Just really good basic Italian food and pizza. It's the kind I like: saucy, cheesy, and hot. The service is always good. Wine list is so-so, so pay $7.50 corkage and bring a fine...More

This is a very good Italian restaurant, with dated decor and a bit of a dated menu. It is a BIG menu and there is perhaps too much to choose from. They have been around a long time and we love their food but wish...More
