All food is served family style and Meant to be Shared"

This is one of those fun, themed, chain restaurants that manage to retain their unique identity, even though there are 51 other locations. You would never guess that they all look just like the one you are in right now.

Okay, this restaurant is strictly for people with big appetites, a true love for starch, and lots of cheese (so, no atkins diet, lactose intolerant people please). No need to list the assortment of classic Italian dishes like the Fettuccini , Lasagna, and Chicken Parmigiana, but one thing you must know: you have two choices between small and large portions. Because this is family style dining, you either get a serving for 2-4 people, or 4-6. This is traditional italian cooking, in a setting reminiscent of a devoutly catholic and nationalist Italian home. Pictures of the pope, Joe DiMaggio, Sophia Loren, and everyone Italian, are everywhere. The particular location we visited had over 2,000 photographs on the wall.

There is unique seating throughout the restaurant. Reserve a table in the kitchen (seats 6-10), or for large parties, reserve the “Pope’s Table” that seats 12-18. With upstairs and downstairs seating, there is plenty of room, and each corner of the restaurant will give you something to feast your eyes on.

Everything Italian, you can hear traditional Italian Folk music overhead, or classic Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra.

My Favorite:

Antipasti:

Garlic Bread with Mozzarella. 5.95 (small) like a pizza pie of bread, with whole garlic cloves and plenty of mozza

Entrée:

Chicken with Lemon 13.95 (SMALL) two tender pieces of chicken breast, doused in a lemony caper sauce. I get it every time I come here.

go to the website, and they list the entire menu. see their list of accolades, or make a reservation online!

Great review! I need to go to this restaurant. I grew up with Italian relatives in Brooklyn and Long Island (Dad's side) and I've been in several homes with what seemed to be over 2000 pictures in just the living room :-)
Joe D was "every Italian's favorite cousin" and all men, from age 12-90, were smitten with Sophia!

They have one of these in SF too. It's pretty good and I always love the lively, loud atmosphere.

I've always meant to go to this place, and wondered about it, but never been! I'll really have to go!!
