This is the second time we have used this venue for a celebration of life service. The banquet room was nicely furnished, the food was very good and reasonably priced. The staff did everything they could to ensure our needs were meet.

This is one of our family go-to restaurants. The food is good, especially the pizza and the cheese tortellini. Other food is excellent too. Prices are family-reasonable. It is a family friendly place, with an experienced staff and an on-site owner.

We do offer a gluten free pizza option! We have been told by many that is the best they've ever had! It is one size, 10" and is $10.80 for cheese and $1.25 for each topping that you add. Thank you!

We are located in Northeast Rockford only 1 mile off of Interstate 90. We are close to the ISC/Sportscore II, Carlson Ice Arena, and Rock Valley College. We built with a large parking lot around the entire building and are able to accommodate large groups and banquets but also small family dinners and carryout/delivery service as well.
