This is a favorite local spot for old school authentic Italian food. Cash only. Excellent pizzas, pastas, arugula salad and hands down they have the best Chicken Murphy ever. I have dreams about it!

The food here is very plentiful and you will always take some home. You can have dinner for a few days. They always give you lots of food for your money.

Dropped by for dinner on a Friday night. Dropped over $50 for a salad and two entrees. Thought it seemed high then we realized they were charging us $2.50 for each soda refill for a small cup. Food was just mediocre. Bread was served hot...More
