This is our favorite Italian restaurant. The food is delicious with large portions. The price is very reasonable for the amount you receive. The staff is very warm and welcoming. I would highly recommend this place to everyone.

Can only say WOW! Reminds us of Grandma's house. Great portions, 2 meals easily, and friendly servers. Owner is usually in the kitchen.

Bland interior; but the food was good. Try the clam dinner with red sauce and ample garlic over linguine. I love garlic; it was awesome. My wife had the lasagna; she said it was good.

Have been eating here for about 20 years or more. Food is delicious and plentiful. A very large menu with veal and chicken selections. I have almost always finished my main course, but usually take the side dish of linguini home with a side order of Italian sausage for my next night dinner. Wait staff has always been very pleasant... More

This is a typical small Italian Family restaurant with everything you could want. Spaghetti and Meatballs to Tripe. Everything is served in generous portions and you'll usually have enough to take home for that 2nd meal Plenty of seating but limited parking. Wheelchair access.

Have wanted to try this restaurant for a long time. There is ample parking on either side of the building but the south side is where the entrance is. It has a casual, clean atmosphere with prompt, attentive wait staff. Warm bread and dipping oil is included with the dinner entrees but salad is not. The salad lettuce consisted of... More

Classic Italian food. Was very busy when we went but were seated right away. The red sauce is excellent (tastes almost like Chefs). Portions are big, and I had to take some home. Got the Baked ziti ala ricotta and it was excellent. Meal comes with bread. Have been here twice and will be back again.

Since La Castelana closed, I have always been looking for a great substitute and finally found it here. Great Sauce, and a great menu.
