Growing up in the 80s, our stand by for Italian was the Spaghetti House down by the Marlton Circle in Cherry Hill. We always loved their garlic bread and ordered the Fra Diavolo - for $30 bucks we could feed 4-5 people with heaping servings of spicy seafood. Then it moved to its current location and for nostalgia's sake, I went back 5 years ago and it just wasn't the same.
So where can I find that casual type dining experience with good food and cheap eats vibe? I am so over the Olive Garden, Buca di Beppo and disappointing pizza joints. Don't care if it's in a strip mall but I want some good gravy, pasta done right and decent prices.
Looking for the Cherry Hill/Mt. Laurel/Moorestown area but willing to travel for some hidden gems.
