Stopped there after Festival of Lights in Goodwin Park. What a nice surprise. Asked for a booth and one was open in the bar area. A warm, friendly atmosphere. The food was delicious. The breads were outstanding. Ate too much.

Traditional Italian served at the First and Last since 1936, and they have it right! Quality food, modest prices, and excellent service in a family friendly environment. Personally, I am a sucker for the Stuffed Artichoke and Carbonara!

Very large menu; easy to find something that works for everybody. Did not have the pizza but the ones I saw looked great. Our party all had pasta dishes that were wonderful. Nice area for outside dining. Service was top notch. Reasonably priced.
