We waited for several minutes to even be greeted and seated. And it didn't improve. Our waitress was inattentive and had a bit of an attitude. She rarely checked on us. Food took forever and was decent, but based on the long wait and waitress's lack of engagement/friendliness, we were not impressed. The gal who was supposed to be working... More

Service was great. Stopped in for lunch on way to the mill. They had home made soups and sandwiches made with home made bread. The Italian ham sandwich (the special) had great flavor and the amount of slaw on the sandwich made a meal. The salad was crisp, cold and fresh.

Over rated wannabe Italian restaurant. Their sauce sucks. Very bland much like you'd get out of a can. Don't mean to make rhythm or riddle, but have nothing good to say about this hole in the wall.

Good restaurant; good service. Food descent. Prepared well. Good choice of beers. Located a bit out of the way. GPS helped us find the restaurant.

Tried this restaurant today and the white pizza is delicious. Service was good and the desserts were delicious too. Menu was varied. Make sure you try the homemade blue cheese dressing.

The best italian food in Butler. Being outside of town provides a country type dining atmosphere. At this establishment you are paying for great food and great service, not atmosphere.

This restaurant has always had good food but poor service. Now, though, they have cut the size of the servings by a ridiculous amount. The pasta dinners now are side dishes. The amount of fries they give is far too less. I don't think Mama would have approved.

Ate here for lunch. It was good food and despite being attached to a bar, it really was a family atmosphere. Nothing fancy, but tasty and good service.

I wrote about this spot a while back and recently visited again with my wife. The people are so friendly, the food is home made and the quality superb. Prices are reasonable and you will not leave hungry. From soup to desert, it's just great. If they have the apple dumplings, order it warm with vanilla ice cream.
