There aren't many places where you can get a big bowl of home made pasta for so little money! Pasta, sauce, meatballs... all really good, as were the greens we had as an appetizer. All meals come with a basic salad and garlic bread. Nothing fancy, but nothing to complain about either. Service was friendly, quick and accurate.

I have to agree with Maureen M who had posted a review before me. We ordered appetizers, one of them being calamari: they were rubbery, tasteless rings. Our meals all lacked flavor, albeit huge in size. We have heard such great reviews but left pretty disappointed.

Tucked in a run down neighborhood that I assume used to be Utica's Little Italy, we had some second thoughts parking on the street outside. Once inside though, this was probably the top meal of our entire NY/VT/Canada 10 day trip! The homemade pasta dishes were delicious and huge. My pork chop pizziola dish was amazing, with two huge chops... More

We were in town for a baseball tournament and although we don't normally get Italian food out of town, there were so many in the top spots of Trip Adviser, we thought we'd give one a try. We were quite disappointed. The restaurant is not in a great neighborhood. We were seated quickly and food brought quickly but our server... More

I ordered a take out sandwich and said ready in 15 minutes and was. Wrap with care to go. Waitress very friendly and offer me a menu to take home as I often order take out.

Used to go here often but had not been back for years, what a mistake! Their food has only gotten better. The waitress was just great and fun to be with, the food just the best. The long hots were really hot and spicy. The ravioli made my wife's meal great but also the next day's lunch. Even the bread... More

The white pasta fagioli was outstanding. There was enough for a second meal. The order of chicken parm was large and delicious. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive.

This is an old neighborhood Italian restaurant. The decor has probably been the same since the 60's. It almost has an old world charm. The food was ok but well priced. Cool thing was they had Utica Club on tap!
