The bread is to die for! Garlic Bread, Cheese bread, Gondolas all taste so much better because of the bread, It's available at Woodman's to purchase,

Local favorite. Affordable pricing, excellent food. Eat in, carry out and even drive through. Excellent Gondolas eat part now save part for lunch the next day. Friendly & courteous.

This place is great. They are known for the Gondola sandwich, but my favorite is the Mobster. I've had many things off the menu, and I've never been disappointed!

I also went to Craig High School next to this restaurant and couldn't get enough of it then.

This place never disappoints. The gondolas are my favorite. The menu offers lots of pasta dishes, as well as sandwiches. The atmosphere and staff are wonderful. We make a point to go at least a few times a month.

Two of us selected the lasagna dinner that comes with a salad and their garlic bread. Their was likely some meat in the sauce, but basically this was a tasty pasta and cheese dish with oodles of sauce that was flavorful.

I went to Craig High School and grew up eating Italian house! I moved away several years ago but definitely make trips there when I come home! The gondola and garlic bread are my absolute favorite! The sweet bread is the best! Always wonderful service and exceptional food!

We prefer to dine local when possible. They have Gondola sandwiches and many Italian specialtys. Service is personable, portions large.

Growing up with the Italian House, and then coming back 25 years later was wonderful! Same amazing food like I remember. Staff were wonderful too. Huge portions of homemade items, clearly made with love. Great value - especially for families!
