We had spaghetti with red sauce (no meat or cheese in it) and a small dinner salad with red wine. Cute inside, looks like an old time eatery. The chairs for the tables were like grade school wooden chairs, but they weren't uncomfortable, just different. Not a great menu for a vegan, but the food was tasty.

Great Italian restaurant with a nice selection of pasta and pizza. You can eat in or order take out. It is a nice place to eat at. The prices are ok too.

So dark I turned on the torch on my phone to see what the salad was. Lettuce drowned in vinegar. Very poor choice of mains so decided to try the lasagne. L
Only just warm and dry except for the very salty tomato sauce. Cannot understand how it can get repeat customers

Although the hostess said they never received my reservation request, there were several empty tables so we were seated right away. Our server was very good and the food was excellent! Our appetizers, the shrimp scampi and the bruschetta, were the best we've ever had. All four of us were very happy with our salads and entrees as well. This was a very enjoyable restaurant!

Needed a break from the Texan fare so went Italian. Got a window table with a light over it! Oh bliss to be able to read the menu easily. We started off with some cheesy garlic bread for the three of us to share, Joe’s toast, good layer of cheese with a bowl of tomato sauce to dip, very good. We followed with two “add your own toppings” pizzas and a penne pasta with two meatballs. All three were very good though the plates could have done with been warmed more. They had Peroni so had a couple of those and we had a bottle of Leese Fitch Cabinet Sauvignon. Good cup of coffee to finish.

The place was a little loud but not overly so and the waiter, Chris D was very good, attentive, anticipating needs etc

At $120 for the three of us it was good value
