Quint Italian restaurant in college square in Berea. Order at front and get a seat- plenty of tvs to watch. Got the baked spaghetti and good size glass of Miscota wine. Beautiful little town to visit.

This place is excellent for a late night pizza. After returning from a concert in Renfro Valley, we found Papaleno's to be the only place open close to the Boone Tavern Hotel. It's within walking distance and the service is excellent.
