It was okay. Spaghetti and meatballs were not as good as you'd think in an Italian restaurant. Husband had the mobster, it was good. Undecided on returning next time.

Italian house is great for a quick and affordable meal for an individual or family. They have great gondola bread, which is similar to Hawaiian bread but an Italian loaf. The food is relatively bland, but it is worth the great service and prices.

The bread is to die for! Garlic Bread, Cheese bread, Gondolas all taste so much better because of the bread, It's available at Woodman's to purchase,

This place is great. They are known for the Gondola sandwich, but my favorite is the Mobster. I've had many things off the menu, and I've never been disappointed!
