Hard to decide what to eat here. Unique sausage makes the pizza one of a kind. The bread homemade and is amazing and the salad bar is the best around.

Overall good Italian family restaurant. You can come with the kids for Pizza, or dress up & have a date night. The salad bar is very good & they have a full bar. They have the best brunch in the area on Sunday.

This restaurant has one of the most unique sitting areas I've seen in a restaurant, each room is different and feels like this place just keeps going. They do offer a dinner buffet, its kinda limited but good. This is my 2nd visit and I haven't had a bad meal yet. If you haven't tried this place you should definitely... More

This was a pleasant surprise on my trip to Clinton. We were searching for a place to eat dinner, and drove by this place. A great atmosphere, with a super helpful and friendly staff, with great food to boot! The prices were extremely reasonable, and portions were very large! Will most definitely be back!

Old family owned business with a nice atmosphere. Whether you are going for lunch, dinner, carry out, drinks or Sunday brunch, the food is consistently good and distinct. Allot of garlic in the sausage so be prepared. Take and bake pizza is very good as well. Italian and American quizene.

Is this Heaven? Well it's close. Is it the crust? The sauce? The toppings? Who knows what the secret is but it's our favorite. Family owned and a must stop and binge when in The Clinton/Lyons area. Their take and bakes are always in our cooler on the way home too...

Rastrelli's has been an icon in Clinton for years and years. I remember going there with my date for prom back in 66. The service and the food was excellent. I felt welcomed by the entire staff during our Reunion. Thank you Rastrelli's for a job well done.
