The place looks like a dive from the outside, but the food was really good. I asked for recommendations and chose one of those, something out of the normal Italian fair, and it was excellent. My husband is not a big Italian food person, but...More

On the advice of the Best Western staff, we drove into town for a better eatery selection. This place was a find for us non-locals. Wine is priced high but the beer was good value. Try the IPA on tap. Our clams with pasta was...More

Great food, sizable portions, nice staff. Been there many times, never disappointed. Big fan of their Calzones. They are so big you'll take half of it home. Good choice if you want to share one order.

I ordered chicken parmesan with spaghetti. It was very tasty until a hour later when it began to repeat on me. The sauce appeared to have onions and Bell peppers. Real Italian's do not make sauce with peppers. My friends ordered stuffed shells, chef salad...More
