  • Went here on a sunday and what I was served was terrible, I told the waitress it was bad and she did nothing about it. I tried eating it but could not so I left. While driving home I thought I should have talked to the manager So when I got home I called back to talk to a manager but all I got was an answering service so I left a message stating how bad the food was and left my name and phone number. I got no reply so I called on friday to see if they had gotten my message. She said she got it the next day but did nothing about it. When I told her my complaint again she told me that ,that was a week ago ,she could not do anything about it and then hung up.I concluded that the management is as nasty as their food..

  • Order: Spaghetti and Meatballs

  • The spaghetti was either overcooked or undercooked as it was tough to chew ,the sauce was bland with no taste at all and the meatballs tasted like they were made with dog food. I could not and would not eat it. It was terrible,the waitress wanted to know if I needed a box to take what was left on my plate which was a lot and I told her there was no way I wanted to take it home. I bet my dog would not eat it.

  • For those of you that have written positively about this restaurant then you need to go back and eat again.

    This restaurant was horrible. The food.....everything we ordered was awful. The sauce in everything was bad including the spaghetti and meatballs....now how can you go wrong with that.

    Never going back!

  • Order: eggplant parmisian,chicken parmisian, spaghetti and meatballs and CHEAP wine to boot!

  • I have been to this restaurant several times. The last two times the manager or owner was seating people and was letting larger groups through before the smaller groups. We were told that there was a 10 minute wait, no problem. After 20 minutes and seeing at least 5 parties leave no one in the waiting area was seated. All the people waiting were couples or 3 people. We were told by the hostess that they were cleaning several tables and we would be sat shortly. Two other larger parties arrived a couple of minutes later and were sat within 2-3 minutes of giving their names and getting pagers. These groups were sat by the owner or manager who overrode the hostess. These groups did not have reservations and the owner or manager was thinking of the extra money they would spend. After we complained the owner or manager was rude and did not know anything about customer service. We finally walked out after another 10 minutes and went to a better restaurant. This is the first restaurant I have ever walked out on . We will not be going to this place again.

  • The food is wonderful. I have never had an issue with it. However, I have heard the owner talking very rudely to other customers. If you have any issue with the food; you will be treated rudely. I have decided I just don't like the tense attmosphere. When I go out to dinner; I want to relax and enjoy.

  • Order: Pasta

  • I always get the same thing, Eggplant, Caesar Salald, Bread, and Coke. Everytime I get this dish it is SOOO good. Its the only place in town I go for Eggplant. You will not be dissapointed! You get a ton of food as well, plenty for leftovers.

  • Order: Eggplant Parmasan

  • We were disappointed to find a human hair in our appetizer (arrancino). That is the worst possible thing to run into in a restaurant. We mentioned it to the waittress and she apologized & that was it. We felt there should have been at least a minor adjustment to the bill. None was made.
    I am a visitor & would not be frequenting the restaurant very often. However, the couple we were with live here & they were extremely upset; such that you will now get the worst kind of advertising.

  • Order: arrancini soup salad Sphagetti Fettecine Alfredo

  • My hasband and I try to go at least once a month and we have our special table we wait for no matter how long it takes, it is worth the wait. The wait staff is ALWAYS friendly and we love the fact that one of the two brothers are on the grounds at all times and make themselves seen. The food is to die for! If you want REAL italian you have come to the right spot. We send people all of the time and get nothing but great results. Keep up the great work.

  • Order: Rice Balls, Veal, Chicken Parm, Sausage Parm & Vodka Penna, Wine
