My husband and I always come here and we bring friends and family as well. The food is very good and the service is exceptional. Highly recommend the spaghetti buttenesca and the Tour of Italy.

We love this place! The food is real good and it's Authentic Italian food made by real Italians! Good prices, good specials, day and night, great pizza (thin crust) with anything you want on it! I love the Calzone, the Meatball Parm and of course the Cheesesteaks! They have everything you would want in a local establishment of this nature.... More

Love their homade soups and actually everything we ever ordered was never a dissappointed. One time ther pasta fagoule was very salty and the kind waitress noticed I did not eat much and she gladly offered another selection. Cute atmosphere, nice and cozy. Friendly and quick service and home made dishes that are not overpriced as some other local Italian... More

We enjoy this restaurant for lunch or dinner! Daily specials and a full menu all are tasty and good sized portions! Clean and friendly with table and booth seating. The pizza is hand made and delicious! The pasta dishes are excellent!

Ordered take-out pizza. Soooo... disappointed. There was only one slice of pepperoni on the majority of the pieces- one piece had two!! Toppings of green peppers and onions VERY thin. Pizza is usually really good there and toppings plentiful! Not sure what happened! Order was not correct either. Seemed the counter person was not having a good night!

Good morning Valerie R. Let me first say thank you for being being one of our favorite customers. Also, you are correct. Yesterday was an off day for our team. We had some staff issues and were short on help however, you should've received 110% from us regardless and I apologize for inconveniencing you. I'm sure that we'll be able... More

I'm always willing to try somewhere I've never eaten and italian food is one of my favorites. I didn't tell Peg I had already eaten,I figured I... More
