One of my favorites for many years. We've been coming here since I was a child. We are never disappointed. I actually tried their Italian Breaded Pork Tenderloin for the first time on this visit. It was amazing. Give it a try.

I'm dying and my wish was to eat here but it was so bad I wish I would have died then because it was so bad I'm going to haunt the owner when I die.

Love the vibe in this 4th generation family restaurant. The manager came by to check on us, the waitstaff were very helpful and engaging. Our party of seven was seated right next to the bathroom, which I'd have skipped if given the opportunity. But the...More

Loved the ambiance and history of being run by 4th generation Italian. However, the capellini was overcooked (too soft). The red sauce was ok and the meatballs were spongy. My wife got the bolonese sauce over penne and there were many small bones ground up...More
