Interesting family restaurant with good food and very good service. They've been in business for many years and the homey decor shows it. This is a warm friendly family place. Not fancy, just good.

It used to be a good restaurant, they used to have a good food, they used to have a good pizza. Now food is just gross! I am not sure if the management changed or the next generation took over. It is not the same....More

Thank you for the email. I was manager on Sunday Feb. 18. I did not know that were not happy about anything. Too bad you didn't ask to speak to the manager, I would have taken care of all your complaints. Barbara Mele

Have been a customer for 40+ years. Lived through all their transitions and updates. Hope it doesn't turn into another empty store front which is where Des Plaines seems destined to go. Just hope it doesn't turn into another condo like the downtown debacle.

This is our third time going to have pizza. The service was great and the Deep Dish Pizza with pork topping was excellent. Friendly wait staff. I would go here again when I visit Des Plaines.
