If you're visiting this "classic, old-school" Italian "joint" in Avondale, "bring plenty of cash" (no cards accepted) and "go with a group to share" the "garlic and olive oil" –redolent entrees served family-style by "warm, friendly" waitresses who "have been there many years" ; the vintage digs and menu make diners feel they're in a "time warp to a Sicilian grandmother's kitchen" –there's "no way you can leave hungry" from this "escape back to the 1940s."

We drove 80 miles expecting a great Italian dining experience, but we went away disappointed. The Italian salad was pretty good, but a little too salty. The meatballs and spaghetti was mediocre($19.00). The chicken cacciatore($28.00) was overcooked and therefore, very dry. And,much, too salty. The shrimp Mosca was passable, but again, full of salt. The one redeeming dish we had was the Oysters Mosca...very good but somewhat pricey at $38.00. The chef at Moscas needs to reevaluate how much salt is being used. I like salt just as much as anyone, but Mosca's just uses much too much of it. Considering the cost of our meal I cannot see going back and the quality of the food, I don't see us going back for more.

Great experience and better food. Oysters mosca and bar b. Q shrimp. Plus crab meat salad were my favorites.

Great food. They suggest you make reservations and if your not there when they open I would suggest it too.
