This place has decent italian food but nothing like (my italian mom) makes. Don't get me wrong, it's good but nothing great.

If you want a great meal, this is the spot in Lake George. It was Italian the way it should be - delicious marinara, giant meatballs, tender veal, and the best Eggplant Rollatini I’ve ever tasted. Service was polite and efficient. Recommended!
