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 frequent this restaurant about once a month. It's always good, there food is consistent. The salad is very lacking but I usually skip it anyway.

In a world full of chain restaurants, it is nice to have a place like this. It may not look like much but the food is wonderful and the staff has been great the times we have been there. I wish they did not charge...More

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.

Excellent dinner great selection. Staff was friendly and helpful the only complaint would be the ability to substitute items to accommodate diet it was not allowed but could purchase items if desired.
