For years I was a real fan of this place for red gravy Italian food however I am loosing my enthusiasm. The food hasn't gotten bad but it has lost its yumminess - it seems like the food used to be made with love and now it isn't. Also the proportions have changed - there is now more pasta and less of everything else on the plate. Last night I got take out and I asked for extra cheese to be grated on my pasta - didn't happen. We also ordered a side of sausage which turned out to be a three to four inch sausage cut into four pieces. A side of meatballs was two meatballs. This seemed to be stingy since each side was $5 - this is a neighborhood place. All told we got an order of eggplant parm, an order of penne with broccoli and spinach, and the two sides mentioned and the bill was $40. This is not a huge amount of money but it doesn't seem like good value anymore.
