This restaurant has one of the most unique sitting areas I've seen in a restaurant, each room is different and feels like this place just keeps going. They do offer a dinner buffet, its kinda limited but good. This is my 2nd visit and I haven't had a bad meal yet. If you haven't tried this place you should definitely... More

This was a pleasant surprise on my trip to Clinton. We were searching for a place to eat dinner, and drove by this place. A great atmosphere, with a super helpful and friendly staff, with great food to boot! The prices were extremely reasonable, and portions were very large! Will most definitely be back!

Old family owned business with a nice atmosphere. Whether you are going for lunch, dinner, carry out, drinks or Sunday brunch, the food is consistently good and distinct. Allot of garlic in the sausage so be prepared. Take and bake pizza is very good as well. Italian and American quizene.

One of the best in Clinton. The food is excellent. It's easily the best Italian restaurant in the area.

Is this Heaven? Well it's close. Is it the crust? The sauce? The toppings? Who knows what the secret is but it's our favorite. Family owned and a must stop and binge when in The Clinton/Lyons area. Their take and bakes are always in our cooler on the way home too...

Rastrelli's has been an icon in Clinton for years and years. I remember going there with my date for prom back in 66. The service and the food was excellent. I felt welcomed by the entire staff during our Reunion. Thank you Rastrelli's for a job well done.

I'm from the area and have been coming here since I was little, over 45 years. I only get back about once a year so I crave it. I was just there a week ago. I always get sausage, mushroom, pepperoni, and onion pizza. It was delicious as always. It is absolutely my favorite food of all time. The lasagne... More

The best pizza in the United States of America. This Italian restaurant has great spaghetti and lasagna but the pizza is outstanding. Everyone really enjoyed their meal. Some had a beer or glass of wine. They have a remarkable salad bar the best I have seen in a long time. This place gets my highest rating.

We went here on the recommendation of two people that are from the Clinton area and we were both underwhelmed. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either and I'm not sure what makes their "famous" salad bar so famous as it was fairly small and the strawberries did not look good. There is plenty of seating with three dining... More
