O M G.... what a horrible experience. No parking, crappy waitress, food dry pasta, soaked chicken, all bad. Half glass of wine, Pepper mill no good, and water tasted metallic. Will never return here.

If you like reading a long menu, you'll love the menu at GNA. If you get overwhelmed, stick with the specials. The menu features many classics and some unusual twist. The specials often reflect what's in season.

The price is reasonable for the amount and quality of food you get at this neighborhood restaurant that's been around for a long time. They make their own sauces and pastas. Portions are big but quite tasty. Service is friendly and prompt. If you want a good old fashion Italian food, this is worth checking out

Excellent pizza! Thin crusted, well done ... Much like pizza in Rome. Appeared to be family-owned and run ... Very Italian and authentic. Service was excellent and the restaurant, itself, was nicely decorated, appointed in Neo-Mediterranean decor. Line spacing in parking lot is a little funky and counterintuitive, but repeat visits will cure my sense to park in the wrong... More

Went mostly for pizza which we had along with some Shrimp Alfredo, not on the menu but they were willing to make for us. Fried calamari was very good. We did not like the white sangria, it was extremely sweet, not a good choice for us. It was a regular Italian meal.

They have a little bit of everything, and I don't have any complaints about the food. It's all delicious, but definitely make sure you get a cannoli or two. The restaurant makes their own. Yum! My only issue this past visit was the service was too slow. They were understaffed so the few people there had long waits. However, I... More

GNA grew from a small pizza place to a real nice restaurant. It is one of the bigger restaurants in the area with 3 areas, a pizza joint feel to the left, a finer dining experience to the right and a pub/ bar area straight ahead with a tv's for the avid sports follower. The pizza is considered one of... More

There was a couple that was by my wife and I that had a child that was extremely disruptive. This child was screaming and running around the restaurant like it was her personal playground. I asked the couple "if they could please take that thing out to there car", at which time the couple informed me that "there family owned... More
