We had a family celebration here and the food was very good. I would recommend the lasagna. All came with a salad and bread and extra spaghetti on the side. Ice cream or sherbet was offered for dessert.(included with the meal).

The food is consistently good. The bartender is wonderful, and the escargot (unusual for an Italian restaurant) is fantastic. It is done in a pesto sauce. Don't miss it!

This restaurant remains consistent with both great food and service for many years. Always worth the wait on the stairs for them to open! A must visit when in Glenwood.

This was our second choice because choice 1 was closed. Cool atmosphere, very friendly staff, food was decent, and price was reasonable. Very convenient location, easy walk from most hotels.

This was just what our trip needed after a long day. This is the clasic Italian gem you find every once in a while. The food was exceptional and the staff was friendly. Thumbs up to a well run restaurant
