I ate there twice. Its Average. Most People dont know from good real Italian food. This is everyday food that people dont know how to cook and have no knowledge about quality because thet were too cheap to find out in the first place. Desplaines needed another Italian restaurant but this is the same as a pizza joint restaurant. I think people just like the name. Everyone has a cousin. (forget the red sauce--you can use ragu and get the same taste)

I ate there and thought it was good. I have never had eggplant lasagna anywhere before. Neckbones? This may be everyday food, but no one else is serving it, that's the catch. Everywhere else is the same old, same old menu.

I've been there! Absolutely thought it was definitely NOT the typical Italian food. Reminds me of good old fashion home cooking that my friend's mother made!!
Ditto to the poster before mine!

Tried their lasagna a few weeks ago - wasn't impressed. Would be willing to try the neckbones, though.

Would you be willing to name a place that DOES have good lasagna?

If I want good pasta, Portillo's/Barnelli's on Dempster has the best value and decent for the money.

I went there and the food tasted very bland and had no taste. I had a better meal at McDonalds.

This was by far the WORST meal I have ever had. I took 1 bite of my pasta and could not believe how disgusting it was. My husband had chicken it was just as bad! I can not imagine anyone serving such horrible food!
