My Wife and I ate at Don and Penny s restaurant tonight and it was fantastic. Everything there is homemade and delicious. I had the homemade lasagna and she had the Tortellini stuffed with lobster and cheese. We also had the cheese sticks for appetizers and they were great, but the sauce they served with it was even better. A wide variety of food choices and something for everyone. This is definitely worth the trip to downtown Alton.
This place has truly good food. The pizza is great (try the carbonara pizza) and the pasta is good as well. Mexican fare is better than some of the mexican restaurants around. I've never had anything bad here. . . love the beer-cheese soup as well :)
However, the price range of $4-$10 that's listed above is a JOKE! Many of the menu items are $10-$12 or more. I think that great food is worth it, but I wish it weren't misrepresented. Leads to sticker shock when you get there.
