We go here pretty often for the lunch specials; the menu has several different things to try. My husband loves the Eggplant Parmesan and I love the Manicotti. You also get hot rolls and a salad for $7.99. The servers are always friendly.

My husband found this gem online. Much to our surprise, the food was great, as was the service. Fresh bread, wonderful marinara, and great Alfredo! It's worth every penny!

I am very choosy about tItalian food! This was one of the best that I have had! Everything is homemade and fresh! It is not fancy, but the staff is friendly and we were all pleased! We will return next time we are in Decatur!

Garlic sauce is to buttery and oily. Bread is so so. Good service. But I’m just use to the Decatur original which is Alfonso’s.
