This is my "go-to" neighborhood Italian restaurant. The must have, is the huge antipasto salad with an abundance of deli meats. Great salad dressings too. The God Fathet pizza had everything on it and is such a good value. I also recommend the meatballs. I get them with an order of angel hair spaghetti with a meat sauce...yummy. The wife... More

If you want a decent Italian restaurant with an expansive menu with decent prices, then I think you'll like this place. I've been coming here for years, so it can't be that bad, right. Enjoy.

We've tried the appetizers, salads, pastas, entrees, pizzas over the years. We dine here regularly and have never been disappointed. The portions are large enough to share (we usually split an appetizer and an entree), and the service is friendly and prompt.

Okay, tonight I ordered a Sausage Marinara which comes with a pasta salad side. While taking a fork full of pasta I found a thin shred of silver metal while chewing. Thin but about 3/4's of an inch long. If I hadn't found it, it probably could have sent me to the hospital. This is unacceptable from any restaurant. I've... More
