This is brand new Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria. Only opened in September. We tried it when they mailed a flyer to our home in Archbald. Parking is in the rear or on the side street. We were greeted by the owner. Not sure what her name is but she was cheerful and chatted with us for about 5 minutes. The... More

This place is a hidden gem. Always excellent service, delicious food and clean premises. The outside really needs love, but inside is very nice

Dad and I went down for the early bird special, weekdays. Coffee, two eggs, home fries, sausage (or bacon or ham) and toast. We had a nice big breakfast and afterward had energy to do our tasks around the house. It was a nice way to start the day. All for under 10 dollars for the two of us, combined.

This place serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is always crowded, a good sign that the food is good and prices not too bad, While the name says Italian, you can get sandwiches and other types of food.

Almost got back into the car because the place looks like it's permanently closed, except for all the cars out front!! The locals sure know where to go. The egg drop, spinach tortellini soup was delicious and it went well with the tomato bruschetta we paired with it. Very glad we ventured in. The people were real nice too!
