We came with a group of people really looking to some good food, there was only 1 other table in the restaurant. ( so how is it no one was checking on us) Service took forever, no one checked on us, food came out missing ingredients, pizza came out as an 8 inch instead of the larger size we ordered.... More

This use to be good till changing over to Tuscany. Food was bland and the knots were oiled and hard enough to shoot em out of your butt like a greased BB. Service was worse. If your a couple you better not have a huge table come in as they will forget you for 10-15 mins. Will find another place... More

We use to love going here, but the last few times we went the service was terrible, they were not organized, I ordered and salad and the lettuce was brown, the pizza was good as always, but for the prices I would rather good where the service is friendly and good.

The service here was good. The pizza came out missing toppings and we were told that the reason was due to the cook being new.

This is not a good place to eat, it is an old building that used to be a great catfish place. I was excited when this first opened because it was affiliated with Lonnie's Italia in Southaven, MS. That affiliation was lost and the quality of food went downhill. I think the only reason they stay open is the bar.

We love this place. The lasagna and Stromboli (Drew's Pile driver) are tops. Greek salad is great too. Servers are always very friendly. There's no better Italian in Olive Branch in my opinion. Here's the drawback - they can be really slow some time. I mean even with just 2 couples in the restaurant - really slow. Sometime we call... More

We visited on our way home from Florida. Desiring something other than Seafood, we decided to give this eatery a try. So glad we did. Excellent salads and pasta dishes. The lasagna is especially tasty. I do recommend the garlic knots over the bread. Staff is down home and attentive. Prices are inline with establishment.

This was my first time eating here but not my company, he recommended the spinelle but I really wanted the chicken parm. We got bruschetta (amazing) and moz sticks (nothing to write home about) our entrees and garlic knots. Everything except the bruschetta was a disappointment. The pasta wasn't drained well so the sauce was watered down. The garlic knots... More
