FAVORITE FOOD/PRICE:

We loved the chicken parmigiana ($13.35), which was served with salad, garlic rolls and a side of pasta. My husband rated it one of the best he’s had, and he’s had plenty. I enjoyed my pasta fagioli soup ($2.95 for a cup) and a Caesar salad with grilled chicken ($9.95). We also shared an order of cevapi ($6 for a small portion), which was served with fresh pita, kaymek and ajvar, a type of relish made with red bell peppers and garlic.

REASON TO GO

Delicious food at reasonable prices.

SERVICE

Fast, friendly and efficient.

NOISE LEVEL

Moderate. We dined on a rainy Sunday evening, so just a few tables were occupied.

KID-FRIENDLY

Yes. The eatery features a kids menu with pasta, pizza, grilled cheese and chicken fingers.
