Enjoy the gracious atmosphere of Old Italy; sit in the Leaning Tower, the Casa Royal or if your not in good graces with our Uncles, the Jail. Families have made us their "tradition" spot for their family life events since 1971!

We’ve missed you..But indoor dining and private events OPENS tomorrow! What “house” will you sit in? Our region’s positivity rate is currently at 7.4% and dropping daily. The governor said back in October when we started that dining would return once below 8% for three days. Our local restaurants are anticipating an announcement from him tomorrow. Our “hidden houses” are perfect to keep you tucked away. All other safety protocols we’ve been keen on the past 10 months will continue. Your part to keep us safe: masks and social distancing are still required. If you feel sick, please stay home. 815-397-2077 for reservations.
