Stopped in on a pretty night b/c it is well located, has a great patio and good reviews. The staff was all super nice so no complaints really. Just recognize it for what it is. Food is absolutely terrible. Do not eat here.

Was looking for a reasonably priced, good Italian restaurant for dinner with our kids. This place was perfect! All of our meals were excellent. Especially high marks for the garlic bread, chicken piccata special and the pizza. Delicious!
