Great pasta sauces and meatballs. Delicious cake dessert, laced with house made limoncello. Wine wednesdays feature discounts on bottles. I wish they made their pasta though.

The food and people here were amazing and their calzones are huge. I went here with my family and everyone loved what they ordered. This place has an authentic family owned and run italian resturant feel. . . and thats because it actually is one. I highly recommend eating here.

Spaghetti Carbonara was outstanding and the portions were... More

Large portions, great bread, overall a great experience. putting in rotation.....call ahead, the dining room is small but seating is not cramped.......would be excellent, if they added a veal dish.....i would give up a child for someone in Pensacola to have a nice veal and peppers dish.....
