This is a real hole in the wall place serving great Italian food. The prices are very reasonable and the serving sizes are huge. The service is a little slow but it is all made up by the great tasting food that is served here....More

Looking for a good local place to eat and went here after reading several reviews. Totally worth it. Nothing fancy, service is slow but food is great, good size portions at reasonable prices. Location is not the best location next to an adult superstore. Chicken...More

This is what I like to call a "greesy spoon". pizza and or pasta you can't go wrong. The decor is less than desirable with paper place mats and such. But the food is awesome and that's all that matters to me

Just had pizza dinner here. Very warm staff. They made me a wine spritzer, in lieu of sangria which they don't have - very good. They 'made' ginger ale for my son; you would be surprised at the recipe, we had 4 of them. If...More

Near the MCRD Marine Base, this is a great spot for lunch or dinner. Daily specials, great pizza, generous portions, lots of choices of a large variety of typical Italian choices. My favorite is the eggplant parmesan (for lunch, it includes a salad, bread, spaghetti...More
