Service was very good. Food was ok but not fantastic. Way too much sauce on the lasagna and spaghetti. Veal Parmesan, I'm pretty sure, was frozen. Waitress was very friendly, prompt and helpful. Decor is tired but it was not dirty as some reviewer claimed.

This place has been here for over 50 years, and it looks like it! We used to love coming here but the last few times (and I mean few) not so much! The place is becoming quite dated and in need of a make over. When you first walk in it is dirty, dark and smells of sewer and musty... More

One of the oldest restaurants in town. Been in business over 60 years. It is a very good italian restaurant. Also has good American style dinners & their pizza is wonderful. Eat there at least every two weeks. Has a bar on one side of the restaurant, but a good size dining room for families. Have been going to the... More

The old grey mare ain't what she used to be. Portions smaller, silverware and dishes not always clean. You have to ask for soda refills, lemon in my water slick. Garlic toast stale, served with a table spoon of bar cheese. I could go on. We won't be back.

Waitress was unhappy about working double shift. Got the wrong order to start. Never came back after correction to ask how we were doing or if she could get us anything else. Did not offer dessert or second glass of wine.

the pizza and bread sticks are great! the décor is dated and the seats are horrible, but if you sit in the bar area it is more comfortable. The food is terrific if you can put the other aside!

This is a long standing restaurant in the community. It's well known for it's unique pizza and ample Italian dishes. The décor is a little much in need of renovation. The redecorated bar area is nice but not often open; however, only beer and wine is available.

This family owned buisness has been here since the 60s when I was a kid. Back then the lasagna became my favorite item. To this day I still order it. Same recipe and flavor. Love the ravioli too Pizza is unbelievably good. Chicken Parmesan is my wife's favorite. Cozy atmosphere and the service is like having family waiting on you.... More

We invited another couple to this old family restaurant. This place has been open all our lives, but there must be a different owner now. The food was of such a low quality as to provide a horrifying is-this-real quality of entertainment. The only thing worse was the service and the place was not clean, either. We were embarrassed beyond... More
