Not easy to find,very small off main street. Superb food,all freshly cooked,good wines,and very friendly staff. The 'boss' father was there eating dinner as well,he is still in charge., This was one of the best restaurants we went to during our tour of the USA. Very busy but we got a table,well worth the trouble of finding

It's a small, casual place. Best lasagna I've ever had at a restaurant. The service was excellent. Michael is the owner/chef. Very nice man. If you're ever in the area, it's worth the trip to eat there. Closed on Mondays.

There's nothing subtle about this place. The food is hearty both in portions and flavor. The crowd (Friday night) is in large part regulars from the community, who are warmly greeted. The staff is big on service. We shared a very nice entree. Very satisfied. If you are looking for the fine dining nuanced flavors and small portions, go elsewhere.

My husband and I stopped here on our way to San Diego, lucky us! This is a great place for real Italian food. Don't let the location and exterior fool you. The portions are huge, so either share or take home leftovers. The food is the real deal and the atmosphere is so friendly. We will be back on our... More

Some of the Italian food around for 500 miles or more. Handmade, delicious, hard to stop eating, and the best pizzas as well. Wish we were home more so more dinners out to THE ITALIAN KITCHEN. You won't be disappointed.
