I really expected the place to serve better food than we received, more true to Italian taste, less pricey would be nice - I thought it was a bit over priced for what you get and it is not even that tasty. Maybe the place needs some Italians to get authentic Italian cuisine. Think we were try the other Italian... More

Its basic food. Nothing original or fresh tasting. The pizza is good most of the time which saves the review from being 1 star. Being italian, there are certain things i look for when dining at an italian restaurant. This place doesnt have it in my opinion.

Our 2 yr old was fussy and the owner came over and entertained him and took him over to where the pizza is made and he and our 7 year old... More

One of the last remaining Italian Ovens in SW PA. This little "hole in the wall" you may miss if your not looking, is a gem! The old red, white, and black décor is fun and inviting. The waitresses friendly and treat you like family. The food - delishious! Another wonderful meal, never disappoints. Make sure to try the fresh... More

Stopped in late on a Thursday evening after traveling to the area. Thanks to the time of year got lucky with an Oktoberfest menu with several tempting specials.
