We were told that this is the best place in town to get Italian. That advice was correct. The food and the service were great. Not far from the resort.

Very good italian food (I had Mussels Napoli and my wife had Chicken Marsella) that were both quite tasty. Attentive service but not overbearing. Good garlic bread and caesar salad. Little pricy for the area but not too bad. Overall a great meal at a good price.

It is much too bright, they should dim the lights for ambience. We were celebrating a birthday and asked for a bottle of Frei Brothers Chardonnay. Our waitress opened a bottle of Frei Brothers red and then gave us grief. We don't drink reds because of headaches so we know that we did not order a red! Such a bad... More

This is a small restaurant near Massanutten Resort. It was clean and pretty on the inside. Food was hot and it was good. Prices were reasonable, $10-$18. Waitress was friendly and attentive. I hear that their pizza is good too.

Reasonably priced and great tasting. The staff could be a little more attentive and friendly. We waited a bit before even being greeted to ask how many in our party.

We arrived at the nearby resort late in the day, tired an hungry. Saw an ad for this restaurant. They deliver!!! Not only that, the food was excellent. We had chicken Parmesan and lasagna, both of which were delicious! The bread was different, more artisanal that what you usually get at an Italian restaurant. When the food arrived, the entrees...

We had pizza delivered twice to our Unit at Massnutten Resort. It was very good. Normally when traveling I rarely good pizza compared to what I can get here in NY, but their pizza is just as good. Also had their eggplant sub, which was excellent.
