I like the super casual atmosphere, dated, but a bit nostalgic. Good service, great prices. Good place for a casual supper. I'm sure lunch is good too. I like the escargot.

My wife had the shrimp alfredo and loved it. I had the chicken parmegian and it was ok. The chicken was breaded and cooked great but the sauce tasted like store bought sauce. Service was good and they had live music.

Good pizza, but crust would not get hard. Baked crust 3x more--twice in restaurant, and once more at home. Was it lacking baking soda? Someone needs to get the oven mechanic out there soon. Pizza looked good, but crust was rubbery. Strange! For $18.99, I expected something better cooked-- especially after 30 minutes? Perhaps they would get more return business... More

A no frills, quaint place to grab a great bite to eat. The service was quick, waitress friendly and the food was wonderful. And we didn't feel out of place since we had just come in off of the beach!! You can't go wrong stopping her for a quick meal or to dine. We will be back!

This is a really wonderful place for vacationers to eat at when visiting Corpus Christi, Texas and North Padre Island. The food is so good and their homemade Italian dressing is even bought by locals in mason jars from the restaurant. The staff are always friendly and attentive to their patrons. They also have a really good local singer nights... More

A friend of mine and I ate here on the Sunday before Labor Day and it was somewhat crowded. Yet, our food was served within about 20 minutes. The dinner salads were fresh and tasty. I had chicken and mushrooms and I was expecting something a bit creamier, based upon the description in the menu. I specifically told the waiter... More

Wife and I stopped for dinner. The wife had Tortellini and I had the Blackened Mahi and they were both delicious. There was a 1 man band that was entertaining also.

I live only a couple miles from this restaurant and have eaten here many times. It's definitely a laid back, casual and relaxed atmosphere. I've always had great service and the food is good and not over priced. I highly recommend the pizza rolls and lasagna which are terrific. They also have live music a few nights a week.

It amazes me how many people still eat here. I have tried it twice now and both times the food is mediocre at best. Very low end Italian. I guess the locals like it. There are many newer better places.
