The garlic bread was very good and my wife liked her Chicken Parmesan but my pizza was a different story. The pizza was very lightly baked and I wondered if that was the way they made them here. Nope! I saw several other pizzas on other tables that were rich golden brown and I could hear the crunch when they bit into it. My pizza was very white on the bottom and only lightly browned on top with no hint of crispy anywhere. A 12" pizza was priced at just south of $13 on special I could only stomach half of it. Very disappointing dining experience. After reading the reviews I should have just continued up the street to Rubi's pizza.

Since I'm half Italian, I know good Italian food. My wife and I eat there twice a month, only cause we live an hour away. Their gravy is spot on and if you know Italian food , it revolves around the gravy. I recommend the eggplant parmesan and the calimary. The service is excellent and the food comes out quick , even when busy ! Also the decor reminds me of the Italian restaurants I grew up eating in. Stop in you won't regret it !

We were traveling in the area and this restaurant was recommended by the hotel we stayed at. It was a well-deserved recommendation, as the food was very good and almost too plentiful. The atmosphere and service made our visit very pleasant. It's a nice Italian neighborhood type of place but large with lots of small rooms that could easily and comfortably accomodate large families or groups with big appetites.
