Best Italian food and there’s always a special. The pasta and sauce is delicious. The service is great! Like beef? Try their prime rib; melt in your mouth!

The Depot has been in town for at least 40 years, and we’ve been satisfied with many a meal there. Very large portions, great Italian offerings. Nothing fancy about the place, but I highly recommend it!
