Food was great with large portions . Prices are reasonable. We were treated fantastic by our waitress. Plenty of leftovers for another meal or two. Would definitely return. One problem was no room for deserts . They have a wide variety of deserts and gelato.

Always great food and service. Lots of value for the $. Everyone has their favorite for pizza - this is mine. But other Italian favorites are also very tasty. It's what I call "family Italian" - basic dishes such as lasagna, manicotti - nothing exotic....More
