I believe we had pizza and some pasta dishes -- all of which were very good. Price for four of us at dinner was less than $20 each and three of us had wine.

Wonderful house made Italian food. The garlic knots were warm and delightful sour dough with just enough garlic to be good without being over powering. The spinach and mushroom lasagna was amazing!! Definitely a must visit in Big Rapids.

Prices were good but the choices were very plain and limited to lasagna and Mac and cheese type dishes. I had jalapeno Mac and cheese. It was OK but a bit on the dry side. They did have good prices on their wine

One out of town guest, a teenager said their pizza was the best she ever ate! I think she's eaten a lot of pizza. Quite a complement.
