Have been going there for YEARS. Just love their sauce and their specials are great. Pizza is yummy too so being a pizza-fanatic, it's hard to make a choice for me. Gets crowded, especially in the summer (stay away in the summer and make more room for ME!). Being local, we tend to go off-season more than in the summer.... More

We enjoy their mid week specials, especially the chicken parmigan on Thursday nights. Right now they are renovating, so I don't know what the new menu will entail.

Great family friendly home town restaurant ! The food is very very good. The weekly special you can't beat!! Have been going there for years. The shrimp scampi is the best !I There is not much a turn around for their waitress staff. They treat everyone like family. Great place to bring your family or go as a couple sitting... More

Homemade ravioli were very thick and heavy the filling was fresh and very good but the dough killed it. The veal parm was good. The house special chicken was average.

Thanks for dining with us! I'm so glad you enjoyed the veal parm and the ravioli filling, but disappointed that the dough and chicken weren't quite your style. The frank feedback is appreciated -- we hope we'll get another chance to impress when we reopen after our renovation! Cheers, Marcello M. More

My family goes for their weekday meal deals. The penne and vodka is always a hit with the kids and their lasagna is amazing. They also have really good pizza.

We sat in the dinning room (we usually sit at the bar), noticed that they don't use the same wine glasses. Table wine glasses small and not very appealing. Felt bad for the server. People complained. Food was very good, as usual. Our server Morgan was very pleasant and helpful.

We're glad you had an excellent meal, but it sounds like it was at a different establishment, as we don't have a bar. We hope you'll check us out, though! Cheers, Marcello M. More
