This is not a fancy place but appears to be family run with excellent Italian. Portions are very large and they have a small, but OK wine list. The bread cam after our dinners were served but that turned out to be fine. Service is OK. Waitress seemed tired or unhappy about being at work. Near movie theater.

This is a family owned small Italian restaurant which sits next to the AMC theatre. It isn't very fancy and if you sit in the center aisle, there aren't any lights, but passing that concept, the food and service were GREAT! We ordered the appetizer of garlic bread with cheese and I could have eaten the whole order and called... More

I had reviewed this restaurant around 6 months ago and I gave it a Excellent rating. The Pizza was great and continued to be for two other occasions but last night the pizza and the restaurant was not up to its standard. As soon as we walked in the first thing that we had noticed was the amount of trash... More

I have only visited once, and ried the pizza and the cheesecake. The pizza was hot, but was a little greasy for my taste. The cheecake was fine. Service was quick and friendly. The prices were very good.

We eat here nearly every Tuesday either before or after seeing a movie. We first came in because it was convenient but now we come for the food and the friendly and efficient service. The food here is definitely a cut above what you would expect. They have one of the best burgers in the Brandon area. Their tomato bisque... More

The grandkids and I needed a place to grab lunch. I happened to be walking by and decided to try out a new place. The food was cooked fresh, the salad was perfect, and the waitress was very polite to all of us. Definitely recommend especially if you are going to the movie next door.

I tried the Stromboli. It was great. The owner came out and explained the process of the dough. They make it like its supposed to be done. Real Italian food. Yum

My wife and I found this quaint little Italian bistro while walking to the theater one day at the mall, we went inside to find a warm inviting atmosphere, friendly helpful staff sat down and enjoyed the most delicious in every way pizza, and I have to say the garlic Parmesan wings were to die for!! This restaurant was so... More

Arriving very early to an 8pm movie showing...my daughter and I were very hungry, so the best stop for a bite was More Italian which is right next to the movie theater. The setting was typically Italian bistro, so we ordered the bruschetta which was "delizziozo" and fettuccine alfredo along with mozzarella sticks and sparkling water. I must say that... More
