Stumbled on this wonderful, small little spot and had arguably best meal of entire vacation. Since 1942, Italian does not get any better. When you walk in you know by the smell you are in a true Italian eatery. Wonderful bread and the best eggplant parm and lasagna ever. For meat sauce they use Italian sausage instead of ground beef.... More

My husband and I went to this restaurant tonight. It is a small place and we waited inside the front door for at least 20 minutes. Neither of the two waitresses even glanced our way, or said hi, or I'll be right with you, so we left.

Chicken piccata was excellent. Lots of food. Bread is good, service was quick and efficient. Lonely looking spot on side of 41 but well worth a visit..

We had salads and pizza at this restaurant for dinner. The salads were excellent. The pizza had too much sauce on it for our liking, it overpowered the taste of the toppings. Service was average. Prices for pizza I thought were high.

Very small place, no reservations, only beer and wine, loved by the locals. Except for the chicken parm, everybody liked their meals. Found the chicken thin and too much breaded. Nice menu and they have specials so it is worth another try.

Everything we had was delicious and seemed to have ben freshly prepared, including "from scratch" pasta. My husband was delighted with his Cesear salad, that included the anchovies that are often omitted. The tasty minestrone was so hearty, that I didn't leave much room for my entree. Oh,... and the freshly baked bread...so good. For our entrees, I had the... More

We love the lasagna so much that it's been years since we've ordered anything else! Everything coming out of the kitchen looks & smells delicious. It's a tiny dining room, but the portions are large.

Heard such great things about this place and decided to try it. Wanted a vegetarian pizza and with their base price of a cheese pizza I would have had to add $1.99 for each item selected. There is no way they were going to put on $1.99 worth of green pepper, mushrooms, etc. Went with the open faced Reuben and... More
