Review

It’s casual Italian dining good for large groups and families. Dining here has the same vibe as Grandma’s house on Sundays or at an Italian-American wedding reception. Food is served in generous portions.

The taste is as expected of traditional Southern Italian cooking. There’s loads of marinara sauce and tons of garlic. Food is always made with fresh, quality ingredients.

Just about everything on the menu is a must-try. The spaghetti with marinara sauce is not to be missed. There are decadent homemade desserts, too.

The restaurant has a large seating capacity. Wait times for food to arrive at the table is not that long, depending on the crowd. Dinner rush is usually crowded but still manageable.
