My family and I went this restaurant for my birthday. I had heard some very good reviews on their food and wanted a new experience. Wow! I was not disappointed. The menu is large and varied. Because of this, I worried that my meal might not be up to par. My worries were quickly gone. The service was very good... More

Really good Italian food. Portion are very generous and cooked to perfection. You can buy drinks there or bring your own bottle. Very busy place but the waitress was fast and courteous.

What a nice place! Homey and friendly -- incredibly good homemade dishes and buttery garlic rolls (tons of fresh garlic) ! Waitress was very attentive and speedy - prices very low for the quality. A very long list of all imaginable Italian dishes. The house red wine was a bit sweet for our taste, but a nice touch.

Great Italian place. food is well done. Can bring your own bottles of wine which is great because lets face it, in altoona, no one has good wine on their menu! Decor about a decade behind. Sometimes they have guys playing music. Good little place to visit in altoona. I give food A-, atmosphere B, Chef is good man A!.... More

The food was delicious. The service was a little slow, but the homemade quality of food made up for it.

Honestly this place should be number one in Altoona. Food was great and the staff were friendly. Wish I could have visited this place again to try more of their food

Ate here twice in the past few weeks, first evening was 2 days before Christmas with the family, a fairly large group, and all was well, food was great, choices numerous, everyone raved about it. One week went by and the same 2 days before New Years, with another couple and what a difference, they had the "New Years" menu... More

My dad and I were looking for an Italian restaurant on our way back from a trip. We saw positive reviews and thought we'd give it a try. It did not disappoint! The gnocchi was perfection (warm, soft, and tasty). Eggplant was also great. But, the best part for me was the tiramisu!! As a tiramisu-lover, I took a slice... More

The vodka sauce is the best we ever had and the eggplant parm is also very good. We have been there several times and never walked away hungry. The owner is very personable and works the tables talking with the patrons about their meal to see if they are satisfied. Highly recommended

Thank Sharon D
