We went here for a nice dinner on Wednesday night. The restaurant was not busy. They have good dinner specials, of which we took advantage. Three of us had the lasagna special and one spaghetti.

My dad told me about Etna Restaurant from back on the day when he and my mom came here. We returned, and it is delicious- just as he remembers 30 years ago.

First, this place is open LATE and I love that! Open til 2 on weekdays, and til after 3 on Friday and Saturday nights, plus they deliver that late too. But, to the food:it's good, it's not fussy, the portions are enormous (I always go home with enough for at least another full meal, actually, more like 2 meals), the... More
