I was there with my wife and two kids recently on a Wednesday night. Getting there at 530pm, we were seated right away. The wait staff was very friendly and the owner/chef came by the table to check on things. All the dishes were very good and portion sizes provided a good amount of take home leftovers...although I polished off... More

We had a reservation but still waited a while at the host station to be greeted. We requested an outdoor table showing nice it was cold inside, waited a good amount of time, and then were told that the party at the table wasn't ready to leave. We waited another while for an indoor table to be readied. We told... More

Not wanting to wait over an hour at the mountain brauhaus, we decided to stop here, just down the road. I had some reservations of eating here, I have heard some terrible reviews by friends that have eaten here. I surmise that this place stays open because of the over flow from that restaurant. They don't take credit cards that's... More

Had not been to the area or this restaurant for 15 years and was looking forward to returning. Alas a lot has changed as the food was poor and overpriced. It should not be hard to make good pasta! Oh well, thing change. Will find new favorites in the area.

Good food but really poorly run restaurant. We used to eat-in once or twice a month and take-out two to four times a month. We stopped eating-in because the service was terrible, the staff would hide and you could not get a drink without a long wait. We stopped taking-out because the food was NEVER ready when promised. I tried... More

Fifteen years ago, this was a standby favorite. Since then, this family restaurant changed to an overpriced, redecorated, and poor quality restaurant. Did management change and keep the name or did the new generation overhaul the whole place? Whatever, our visit was a BIG disappointment. Gone was the cozy atmosphere. Food was poor and servings were small. Prices were very... More

Place was extremely priced high for the portion size and the entrees were awful !! I had ordered three appetizers they would barely feed 3 people for the portion size!! Seating was too close together can hear... More

The make their own pasta and bread and both are awesome. I often buy the bread to take home and share with family. Love their veal piccata and eggplant parm. Friendly staff and nice atmosphere.

Paul and his staff are warm and inviting and their passion shows in the food. Everything here is great. Especially the house made pastas and bread!
