Ate here for dinner as we stopped in the area on vacation. Really great service, very friendly staff! Food was super good, kids ordered pizza and we got the chicken pasta special. Homemade dishes were good. Would highly recommend.

We always eat at Mazzotti's when we visit our daughter. They have very good food with reasonable prices. The restaurant is right on the plaza, very convenient to downtown. Their garlic butter is sooo good. We often get some to go.

Had dinner. I had fetuccini alfredo, husband had mixed seafood with angel hair pasta (name of dish escapes me). They offer several dishes with half portions, perfect for me. Service was great, coffee tasty!

No complaints here at all. The place was comfortable, the staff was very pleasant and helpful, the food was very good, and the prices were reasonable. I'd go back.

Meal was good but not a wow. Restaurant was cold, needed to wear a scarf. We are visiting from NJ and decided to try an Italian meal.

It really doesn't take much to be a good place to just have a breather after a hot day out or on a cold, rainy day. Friendly, efficient staff, quick orders out on the table, good food to nurse the tummy and a comfortable place...More
