Good value, got right in, got waited on right away. We had shrimp fettuccini and manicotti. Both were excellent. Desserts were just good. Should offer pistachio cannoli. Great little neighborhood hole in the wall.

The atmosphere isn't much but the food was pretty good. Seemed to taste homemade, after ordering at the front counter as we entered our meal and salad were brought to our table fast. The salad was fresh and the lasagne I ordered was very good.

A great casual restaurant in Birmingham. Service is always good and food is consistently good and fresh. Have tried most everything on the menu. Can not go wrong with any of their dishes.

This may be the best calzone in town. The meat calzone is excellent and it is huge! If you haven't tried it, you need to.
