Stuffed eggplant is always awesome. I have had this dish many times. Yum All meals come with a homemade soup and salad. Different soup on different days. Calzones are delicious Table wine Interior continues to improve. Nice. Cleaner. Keep up great work including restrooms. Prices are reasonable; 50 for couple including tip.

If you're looking for great Italian food at reasonable cost...Jimmy's is the place. Tucked into a former Taco Bell building, they've made recent upgrades to smooth over the appearance and improve the ambiance, but who cares? The food is why I keep returning to this place. Great menu, good selection, larger portions and reliable good service this place is a... More

As good as you can find in Montgomery county, Ohio !!! I am sure their sauce should be equal on all their Italian dishes.

We went for the first time this week and everything we tried was delicious. We shared a works pizza and our grandson had a calzone with pepperoni. Everything was fresh and delicious and their sauce has a wonderful flavor. I want to go back soon, they list several Fra Diavolo dishes on the menu and I can't wait to try... More

The marinara sauce they use is delicious - just the right consistency with wonderful flavors! Dinners come with a salad. Pizza is tasty. They have a good selection of bottled beer and wines. Prices are great for the portions and quality of the food. Service is friendly - though a bit on the slow size. The owner can be seen... More

A great place. Great food, excellent value. They have a wine list and beers if you care to indulge. Even though they ran out of salad, was still a home run. Give it a try - you won't be sorry!
