Our Philosophy is a simple one...


To serve authentic Italian fare in a friendly and casual setting, at a good value. Many of our recipes were brought over from Italy with our grandmother and have been enjoyed by legions of patrons since 1946 at our upstate New York restaurant.


From our beloved pizza dough to our signature pasta, nearly everything in our restaurant is handcrafted, from scratch, every day! And whenever possible we use fresh herbs, fruits, and vegetables from our on-site organic garden.


We look forward to serving you, and from our family to yours...Bon Appetito!
