I wouldn’t say just because I’m part Italian that this fell way short, I would say because I eat well, and that this food was poor quality. I’m always amazed when I read reviews that certain things stood out-like the person who said it was...More

Great large quantities of traditional homemade Italian family food. Nice sweet marinara sauce with most red sauce dishes. Standouts are neckbones! Great service from well-seasoned staff who are willing to please. Fun for the whole family!
