Met a friend here for lunch. Lunch menu medium priced Italian. Nice complimentary bread and olive oil dip. Had a lunch combo of two slices of Annie's pizza (spinach, sausage, and carmelized onions) and Lisa's Salad. I asked to substitute romaine for the mescaline greens in the salad and this was no problem. Enjoyed both, although the pizza was only... More

The service was exceptional. From the moment we walked in until we were out the door. Every person there makes you feel like the most important customer they have and that is how it should be done. :-) Next, the food. They gave us 4 small slices of their pizza complimentary before we even ordered. It came out with the... More

The restaurant was packed and sadly could not accommodate any more guests for the evening. As walk ins arrived they were turned away with a delicious home made sugar cookie and an apology! Dinner was slow as the kitchen was so backed up. As we waited for our food to arrive they brought around free pizza slices to each table.... More

Local fave for family Italian cuisine and business oriented lunches where you can get things done, eat yummy Italian treats AND get back to work in under an hour. Daily specials are delicious, esp. anything with a Sunday sauce. Service is friendly and attentive but not annoying like some places that always want to top off your full water glass... More

If you a looking for a home-style Italian restaurant that makes you feel that you are sitting an Italian kitchen then this is the place to go. Everything I have ever had there is great. Plus you get a tiny piece of cassada cake at the end.yummy. This place isn't fancy but the good and service are great. Suggest a... More

It's great to find an independently owned restaurant that makes you feel important and has good food. The wait staff goes out of their way to accommodate you and the food is fresh and yummy. We went with friends and all enjoyed the drinks, the service and the food. We will be back soon.

Food normally very good, but every time we are there the telephone is on a setting that makes it ring VERY LOUD and can be heard throughout the dining room. I'm sure there's another way to insure they don't miss calls! Really ruins the evening and the atmosphere!!!
