We’re extremely proud of the delicious fare we serve here at our place, and we’re open for both lunch and dinner, six days a week.

Daily lunch specials
Whether you’re looking for an Italian lunch special, a classic sandwich, or a bakery fresh pizza or calzone, we have something for you. Our daily specials feature a nice selection of meals to choose from, and our club luncheons even come with complimentary coffee! Treat yourself to a freshly prepared meal in our comfortable restaurant, or order ahead for takeout, and we’ll have your lunch ready to go when you get here.
Our dinner menu features some unique Italian specials as well as more standard fare. Our specials have something for hearty appetites, but we also cater to those who prefer lighter meals. From slow-roasted USDA prime rib to broiled Alaskan red salmon, we have a range of dishes to select from at our restaurant. Customers love the care taken with the food here—we cook everything to order, and it makes a difference.
Be prepared to take some time deciding what you want—our menu is extensive! Start with a few appetizers, like homemade toasted ravioli or calamari, and browse the main dishes. Our traditional Italian pasta is fresh, and the sauces are flavorful. Whether you prefer a simple tomato sauce, meat sauce, or meatballs, we can accommodate you.
Our house specialties always earn rave reviews from customers. Be sure to try our famous Neapolitan pizza at least one time—it’s what we’re known for! Be sure to save a little room for our excellent desserts too!
While we love serving customers right here in our restaurant, if you would like to take quality Italian food home, we can arrange that for you as well. Our fresh baked bread is a popular item, but we also offer a large take-out menu that you can order from if you like. Simply call us and tell us what you want, and we’ll let you know when you can come in and pick it up!
