Food is good and reasonable in price. Owners are not friendly but wait staff is nice. Stay out of the bar area. I saw what looked like an escort meeting at the bar between an old guy and a very young attractive girl that look suspicious.

Have eaten here several times and always had a good meal. Many offerings on the menu and 4-5 specials every night. Divided into a pizza/sandwich area and a dining room. There is a bar in the back area. Tables are set far enough apart and decent size. Food is above average and service is always good. Atmosphere is almost upscale.... More

O M G.... what a horrible experience. No parking, crappy waitress, food dry pasta, soaked chicken, all bad. Half glass of wine, Pepper mill no good, and water tasted metallic. Will never return here.

If you like reading a long menu, you'll love the menu at GNA. If you get overwhelmed, stick with the specials. The menu features many classics and some unusual twist. The specials often reflect what's in season.

The price is reasonable for the amount and quality of food you get at this neighborhood restaurant that's been around for a long time. They make their own sauces and pastas. Portions are big but quite tasty. Service is friendly and prompt. If you want a good old fashion Italian food, this is worth checking out

Excellent pizza! Thin crusted, well done ... Much like pizza in Rome. Appeared to be family-owned and run ... Very Italian and authentic. Service was excellent and the restaurant, itself, was nicely decorated, appointed in Neo-Mediterranean decor. Line spacing in parking lot is a little funky and counterintuitive, but repeat visits will cure my sense to park in the wrong... More

Went mostly for pizza which we had along with some Shrimp Alfredo, not on the menu but they were willing to make for us. Fried calamari was very good. We did not like the white sangria, it was extremely sweet, not a good choice for us. It was a regular Italian meal.

They have a little bit of everything, and I don't have any complaints about the food. It's all delicious, but definitely make sure you get a cannoli or two. The restaurant makes their own. Yum! My only issue this past visit was the service was too slow. They were understaffed so the few people there had long waits. However, I... More
