I completely agree with judy-
This used to be our favorite small restaurant for years--great food, good value for your money, good service, and very nice and friendly owners.
Since the parents retired and the son took over--all the good things changed! The food portions were cut way down--prices up, service was never good and very slow even if not a crowded dining room--and he was selective as to who he would be friendly to--twice our credit card was charged incorrectly, and even when paid with cash, change never given back correctly--or given to the server, as requested.
These things happened to friends of ours also--the rudeness was never appreciated, and not a good reflection of his good parents who were fabulous in every way! We have too many good Italian restaurants to chose from as to take his treatment.
The new roads and construction in front of his building/restaurant has nothing to do with his business dropping off--it is much more than that. Try treating guests better--and get the food back to the way it used to be--and remember there is really a recession--fair prices would be a draw.
Yes, the cheesecake is the best in town, only because it is his mother's recipe, and she used to always cook it!
I would never bring my friends or out of town guests ever again!
