Johnson City, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Known for its sauce and house Italian dressing, Cacciatore's in Johnson City is a family-owned restaurant that always brings something special to the table.

From eggplant parm to all-you-can-eat spaghetti on Monday, Cacciatore's has something for everyone on its menu, along with specials daily.

Cacciatore's has been in business since 2000. Owners Frank and Sue Cacciatore moved the restaurant to its space at 119 Harry L. Drive in 2012, completely re-doing the interior to make it their own.

Starting your meal at Cacciatore's with an appetizer is a must. The menu features everything from crab stuffed mushrooms to bruschetta.

The restaurant's warm homemade bread is something everyone talks about when they visit. It's made special daily for Cacciatore's by Felix Roma Bakery.

Cacciatore's is known for its house Italian dressing that comes with its fresh tossed salad. The dressing is so popular among customers that people stop by to buy it by the bottle.

The house dressing is one of the many things something owner and chef Frank Cacciatore says he's very proud of.

The seafood marina has everything seafood lovers would want including shrimp, scallops, mussels and clams in a marinara sauce.

The filet in the grass is made to order and served with warm bread, tossed salad and a side of spaghetti.

The sauce on the spaghetti is something else. Frank Cacciatore won't give up his secrets but said the key to the sauce is that is balanced, not too sweet or strong. You can stop in to buy the sauce by the quart.

Happy hour is from 4-6 p.m. with half-price appetizers at the bar.

Specials are featured every day of the week. Monday is all-you-can -eat spaghetti, Tuesday is prime choice black angus sirloin, Wednesday is fish fry or crab stuffed haddock, Thursday is eggplant parm, Friday is the popular fish fry. On Saturday, the special is a surprise meal that Frank Cacciatore chooses.
