The food is delicioussss!

The food is delicioussss! Very fresh, and family friendly. The staff is super nice, they even get our dog a few treats outside!! I would definitely recommend this place if you are ever in the area and looking for a place to eat some amazing food.


highly recommend this restaurant

We stopped here on our way to SC with our grandchildren for dinner yesterday. Our server, Scott was awesome, friendly and efficient too. We ordered a Greek salad, cheesey garlic bread and a pizza! Everything was excellent! I also ordered a beer that is out of Asheville, NC on draft. I have never had a mug of beer stay so cold for so long. Great prices too! I highly recommend this restaurant for locals or if you are traveling through! I just got very sad when I read poor reviews of the service and pizza. We will be back if we are ever in the area again.

meat lovers pizza was fantastic!

Wife and I stopped here for lunch on a short road trip and I’m glad we did. We got the meat lovers pizza and it was fantastic! The staff was friendly and fast. We sat outside and it was great. Definitely coming back.

food was great and the service was even better

We had an absolute blast here. The food was great and the service was even better. We had a large group of 15 with the majority being kids. They accommodated us in the area we requested to try to be as out of the way as possible. Jamie was our server and we absolutely enjoyed her personality as well as the others we spoke with throughout our time there. We definitely plan on going back when we visit NC again!

toppings were abundant

Simply a fabulous experience. Food is good and service is even better. The decor is old school Italian restaurant with kitschy Beautiful Italy placemats.

We ordered the Greek Salad, Family Calzone and Chicken Parmesan for 3 adults and 3 kids. We were all stuffed and had to take boxes to go.

The Greek salad was huge and the toppings were abundant. The dressing was amazing! Perfect Greek salad.

The family calzone was decadent and overflowing with toppings. We all fought over the best pieces but truthfully they were all good.

The chicken Parmesan was delicious and had a little too much sauce but really tasty.

Of course we had to get dessert too. Carrot cake cake is great and the Tiramisu is delicious.

Highly, highly recommend!

My wife, son and I are here on baby moon for baby #2 and we were looking for something pizza like for dinner. What we found was a diamond in the rough! We got the family calzone and antipasto salad with cheesecake. We knew right when we picked up the food at the drive thru window that we were in for a treat, talking to the chefs and assumed owners and heating their thick Italian accents said there was a story that we were probably missing but were about to experience in this food. We were right! The calzone was fluffy yet crispy and the ricotta mozzarella mix inside made for a delicious bite. The antipasto was well put together and the Italian dressing was homemade and delicious! The highlight was the cheesecake. Words can’t do justice to how decadent it was and obviously homemade to perfection from scratch. This is real, authentic Italian food for a good price. Highly, highly recommend!

staff was very friendly and attentive

My wife and son stayed in Linville this past weekend and found this unassuming little Italian place. With the name being so bland, we weren’t too sure about it but thought we’d give it a shot anyway. It was quite busy but the staff was very friendly and attentive. The menu is classic Italian American, with lots of red sauce and the standard pizza and Calzone offerings. We opted for a pizza and I have to say it was among the best “standard pizza” I’ve ever had. The dough was flavorful, the cheese was of obviously high quality, and the sauce wasn’t overbearing or sweet, but just right (at least for my tastes).
