Too bad this was great Italian for years. Sad to see it go. Another victim of apartments over food. The state economy didn't help either. Oh Well.........

Gino's is a small Italian deli right next to Home Depot. They sell fresh Italian groceries and offer a good selection of food goodness. I came here for lunch quite often because it's really cheap and tasty. I'm a big fan of Gino's lasagna and...More

Depends on what kind of pizza you like. Eggplant was greasy last time I was there. There are many choices for pizza on State street.

We almost didn't go to this restaurant after reading the reviews and its ranking among other Italian restaurants. Wow, am I glad we went anyway. The restaurant was already busy at 6:00 but we were seated promptly and even though just 2 of us, given...More

We were seated promptly at a booth on the first floor. The area is very dark and is lit only by lights over each booth. The seat cushions were not very cofortable. Service was prompt, and our server gave us a customary level of attention...More
