Old school food and environment, a refreshing fun time.

Very large portions - young children can definitely share off mom/dad's plate. The meatballs were HUGE and quite tasty. The pasta is nothing special, but there is nothing wrong with it. We also got calamari (good) and took home some spumoni (very good!).

Q&A with the Yarusso Family

What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?

Well, we are celebrating 80 years this year. [The] third generation is running [the restaurant] now. Freddy, who is one of the owners, his house as a child is where our parking lot is now. Our additional dining room that we had added a few years back is where his front yard was. He literally grew up here. We have always been able to maintain it as a family business, and consider ourselves very lucky to have the chance to keep the dream alive of a poor Italian man that worked his butt off.

In your own words, how would you describe your menu?

Our meatballs [and] sauce are made with the exact same recipes that our grandfather used when first opening up in 1933. We have also added some new items through the years, while still maintaining that Yarusso taste.
