For great tasting Italian-American food come here. It's not fancy but you will get a tasty meal for a reasonable price. Pastas, chicken and veal dishes are freshly made and the servings are ample. You won't leave the restaurant hungry or disappointed. Service is a little slow but the food is worth the wait.

My family enjoys their 2 for $20 dinner specials on Wed-Fri nights. Our favorite is the chicken parm. We have only done take out so far. Dinners come with your choice of soup or salad, and bread that is made on premises.

I've been back several times since the initial review with family and business associates. Still a good experience and very reasonable prices. Antipasto cold cuts are sliced to order and assembled by the wait staff. Here's a pic.

Finally had a chance to stop by Parente's. They are not open for a good part of the week - check the web for days/hours. Very enjoyable and a homey atmosphere. Good service. I will stop here again.

I have been to Parente’s restaurant around 6-7 times and it’s enjoyable. I‘ve had the soup, salad (caesar), and the chicken / veal parm and all are good. They have a good marinara or red sauce. I tasted both the vodka and alfredo sauces and I prefer the alfredo. The quality of the food served has increased over time. Parente’s... More
