Just went over there this morning... it's great! All homemade foods, gravy, sausages, pasta, pastries, etc., etc.
I brought home some chicken parm for lunch!

It's family-owned and they seem to be really friendly people.

Seems like the other thread was deleted, I guess it was considered advertising.

Well, I went to the store and tried several items.....

Had cheese and meat ravioli, bought the homeade sauce and bread.....

Wasn't a fan of their sauce...very dark and VERY acidic. The rav's were ok but I honestly wouldn't go back and pay the same price. Pastosa's in Lowe's are better IMO.

The bread was very good...really enjoyed that.

I might try the pastries next time.

just my honest .02

Thats what we need, honest opinions. I have also tried their bread and loved it but have not tried anything else yet(money's tight). Just lucky that it is right down the road and I pass it every day.

I wish it was great I really do.....I'd go back...

It was $29 for a pkg of cheese, a pkg of meat (rav's), bread, & sauce....

If Im going to pay those prices I want something good..I'm not doubting it was homeade (because it was) but the sauce and rav's disappointed me....

Went there and got:

Tortellini pasta salad - it was good, but not outstanding.
Mozzarella/tomato salad - fantastic! Their homemade mozzarella is great.
Antipasto salad - this was also delicious.
Canolli - delicious and filled at the time of order. They use ricotta cheese for the filling instead of mascarpone. This makes the filling lighter and less sweet, both of which I liked.
Sfogliatelle - these were awesome. First time I've ever had them, but I really enjoyed them.

We'll definitely be back. I can't wait to try their ricotta cheesecake...

I will 2nd the fact that they were VERY friendly and helpful!
