Dependable Food

I've been here a number of times now, and am never disappointed it, though also never surprised. the food is classic Italian comfort food, and it won't break the bank (especially on Monday's when they have the half-priced wine, or the lunch specials for $10) It's nice for an affordable, reliable meal. They also have gluten-free pizza which is a total bonus for those gluten-free folk who have a hard time eating at Italian restaurants. Certainly nothing to write home about, but it won't kill you either.

Disappointed Twice

I've been here twice - the first time on purpose, the second time by accident. First time, food was super oily and not tasty. Second time, I got the rigatoni - really salty. There are too many restaurants nearby to settle for this one - in terms of price, it's fine but the food is just not good!

Delicious--and a Deal

The Three Pasta Special, Pork Bracciola, appetizers and panacotta were excellent. Coffee was great and the free bread was divine. The host stopped by to ask how everything was. They're opening a new location on 112th. Will definitely be back.

November 2007: After a minestrone, which was either several days old or from the deep freezer I was presented a Lasagne later, which obviously was microwaved - I cooked a little and can tell. Second time was Thanksgiving. I arrived at afternoon around 5:30 to grab a small pasta - only to be told that there was a pre set menu only - for the ridiculous amount of 50 USD. Remembered the earlier desaster and rejected. I still struggeled why Nonna had received such a good comment on this site, so I went for a third time. Same thing again: Beans soup either days old or refrigerated, the Pasta again was uneatable that I rejected eating it. I am not snobby at all and I have never placed such a comment on a public website, but I suspect that the positive comments entered earlier must have been placed ages ago. Cheap admitttedly, but the quality is less than any pizza place nearby or any ready to eat microwave product. Sorry for being so blunt, but you blew it three times in a row.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
