The meal was excellent and served hot and the bread is always good. The spaghetti and meat balls are tasty and fill you up. We have the meal leftover as well and it tastes the same the next day. No flavor is lost.

Been here a number of times over the years and it's always good consistent quality at great prices. Nothing too fancy just like your italian momma's kitchen feel. They also have a bar.
