This restaurant brings me back to the old days. Feels like home. I love the food. The sauce is the best. Italian bread is fantastic. Huge portions too. Always take home enough for another meal.

The red sause is fantastic - which is the prime factor in Italian cuisine. Also the menu is complete from Egglant palm to Italian egg sandwich

Not the most romantic or pretty restaurant to visit, but the food will leave you wanting to come back. Old fashioned Italian home style food. Everything is delicious. The staff have been there forever and knows their stuff.

How many gallons of water do you use for a cup of sauce? It's so watery. Where did you find your workers? They are terrible at waiting tables. When will you be using real homage food? The stuff you guys have is frozen from China.
