I remember when Malara's only had 3 or 4 tables and a bakery case. As it's expanded, the quality of the product has always kept pace until my most recent visit. The seating process was slow and disorganized on a Wednesday evening. And service was...More

Food was very tasty and the buns were excellent. Salad was basically iceberg lettuce drowned with the house dressing. Lasagna was very good. Atmosphere pleasant. Waitress rather slow at times.
