Tried this once, found the italian food fair. Good but not great. Value was good as prices were reasonable. Just not on my favorite list.

I ate at this restaurant twice while visiting havre de grace. The first time I grabbed pizza to go. One white pizza with spinach and one cheese slice. I thought they were both very good. I returned for a sit down meal with friends, and ordered their spaghetti bolognese. The sauce was very salty, but had good flavour. The portion... More

When I called to make reservations for 10 people, I asked for the back room for a little more privacy so that we could talk. The person who took the call was rude and insisted they'd "try" to put us in the back room. When we arrived, a waitress did take us to the back room and seated us (along... More

Hubby got meatloaf was served with gnocchi. Again sauce horrible,meatloaf tasteless, gnocchi not cooked too hard, consistency of a gummy bears. In... More

Servings are generous portions. Rarely can I not finish my plate, but this time I did push the bowl away. Lots of pasta served. Good eating.

Very dark inside, we couldn't read the menu. We only wanted a quick bite. Thankfully the food came out quickly, it went downhill from there. The beef had a horrible taste, rancid almost. The ketchup out of a Heinz bottle was definitely not Heinz. Dark color and very vinegar flavor (definitely food service in a Heinz bottle). All the food... More

Ate here with business colleagues. Food was ok. Restaurant lacks style and is quite dark Food is ok but not special. We had three starters and all were massive - as big as a main course which is wasteful. Mussels, calamari and brioche. For mains we had one of the specials which should have had crab, lobster and prawn. I... More

We stopped here for dinner on the way home from a business trip. It's a bad sign when salad is served with a packet of commercial dressing. And the salad mixture itself was unimaginative. On the other hand, I had an excellent chicken cacciatore. My husband had a meatball sandwich--on the recommendation of another Trip Adviser review. He found the... More
