Definitely not fancy would be a fair description of this little Italian Restaurant, barely 20′ wide it is a bit tight but not uncomfortable in the dining area that is reached walking by the, unusual today, open kitchen.
Homemade rolls only make the standard Italian fare even better. The food here is just plain good! Not pretentious but served hot by a friendly wait staff that do their best to make you feel right at home. I just like this place although, bike parking is restricted to the street there are marked parallel parking places that work well enough. I am not a pizza fan but my son is and he tells me it ranks right up there. Others have said to me that the food here reminds them of Youngstown Italian food and while I do not know what that is, there you go.
Located right in the center of old downtown Massillon, Ohio there are several comfortable local watering holes that won’t break the bank if you choose to spend a few hours. Also, on Thursday nights during summer the city sponsors free concerts just a block away from Smileys. Mostly oldies but hey, starting to get there myself. Make it an evening, dinner, music and a drink after, all for twenty bucks a head… you figure out how to beat that.
Good food, good service, beer, wine, and cheap.
