The menu is extensive and the service good, but the food was bland and unappealing. My chicken alfredo was dripping in a bland sauce and the chicken was small strips. My husband had veal Marsala. The meat was grisly but the sauce was flavorful and...More

We have eaten here a few times. The food is average Italian. The atmosphere could use a little help. We would eat here again.

Ate here the night before the Pensacola Marathon (I only ran the half). Excellent pasta, ice cold beer, and a great family atmosphere. I had Chicken Parm that was delicious and hit the spot. Guarantee I will return here on my next trip.

This is a plain, no-nonsense restaurant serving a wide range of basic, well prepared Italian food in generous quantities at reasonable prices. My wife had baked oyster parmesan which she described as excellent. I had what I always love to get, spaghetti and meatballs. But...More
