I have driven by this place many times in the past but never stopped. It was recommended by a friend, and we were impressed with the food. The price was very reasonable. The lunch special was just the right amount of tasty pasta and salad. The french bread was some of the best I've ever had!

This is a local place where you get good food, good portions at a reasonable price. One TV usually turned on to a sporting event. Place your order at the counter and it will be delivered to your table. Family owned and they have been in this location a long time.

This tiny little storefront hides a small and delicious Italian restaurant. The red sauce is so good. Choose from various pastas and meats. You can get gluten-free if you want. Try the lasagne or rigatoni with sausage. Maybe some chicken or veal piccatta. Each meal comes with toasted cheesy garlic bread (yum). The house wine is nice; have some Chianti.

We 'found' this place when our daughter had me pick up a large order for a family event. It's been here a long time, but we never found it. The large pasta order for our daughters event was very good, so we decided to have dinner here the other night. Not much to look at, but the food was served... More

Thank god we had a gift card. Went there since its a Friday during lent. Brutal. Four dinners to go. Gnocchi, tortellini and 2 clam linguinis. Tortellini eaten by 15 year old who doesn't taste anything because he eats so fast. Gnocchi tasteless, the two limnguinis, terrible. Garlic bread was edible, but not good. We will donate the money left... More

Though this place is very small & located where there is no ambience, it's a great take-out place. T

Order at the counter from Tom or Diane, the owners. High school kids bring the order. Satisfying Italian food comes with garlic bread. Sweet French bread with a "smear" of something is a little salty Salad sold separately. Marinara sauce must be cooked for weeks, it's a little strong.

Wow! A locals favorite. You could pass by this place a hundred times looking for something that looks nicer to eat at. The pasta here is unbeatable anywhere. The meat sauce on anything is a 10 and the chicken marshals is mouthwatering . I have eaten here for years and had to take a step back many years ago because... More
