Their bread is some of the best I've eaten-yum! My spaghetti and meatballs were above average. My wife said her lasagna was the best she had ever eaten. Service was a little slow. Overall, one of the best Italian eateries I have visited. There are...More

Love this place! We discovered Flippin last year. A dark, cool, cozy, authentic Italian restaurant. We enjoy sitting at the bar, meeting people and watching football. Last year I ordered the supreme pizza. It has to weigh 5 pounds. Delicious. Husband had chicken parm. This...More
