We have been eating here with our family for 35 years. Everything is excellent. They have all kinds of alcohol, sodas. Lots of seating. A good place to take youth baseball,softball teams for celebrations!

I had one appetizers including a dinner salad and they were both outstanding. The calamari was perfectly seasoned and cooked. The dinner salad was fantastic with olives, big chunks of cauliflower carrots and crisp lettuce. Can't wait to come back for a regular dinner.

What a lovely restaurant with a view of the mountains. The food is tasty and truly Italian. The waitresses always seem friendly and professional. The food is consistently flavorful and perfectly prepared. Take-out business seems to be brisk at dinnertime

I don't quite know what they do wrong, but our pizza was so horrible that we left almost an entire pie at the restaurant. The ambiance feels dirty and disgusting.
