Having driven by this locally owned spot on Durango countless times, I finally decided to check it out while family was in town for the holidays. The menu has plenty of Italian American classics — perfect for those more accustomed to dining at chain restaurants. The consensus from the table was that the food was decent, not stellar. After sifting through a heavy layer of mozzarella, the lasagna was a nice blend of well seasoned ground meat and ricotta. It was really unfortunate that the flavors were drowned out by the top layers of cheese. Others at the table were satisfied with a mussels and clams dish and the chicken parmigiana — two decent sized breaded chicken breasts accompanied with a side of spaghetti. The most disappointing dish was a veal dish with only slivers of meat in a white sauce that was also accompanied by a side of spaghetti in marinara sauce, an odd combination of sauces for one dish. Other restaurant oddities include employees with Italian accents that will have you wondering if they’re real or not and a restroom located outside of the restaurant, towards the end of the building.
