We celebrated my son's birthday here on April 6th. The food took a long time, the main dishes were salty and they kept piling on the plates and no one was removing empty plates. We had to ask them to do it and they didn't even do it right away. Steak was overdone, pork chop very salty and so was... More

We went here last evening for my father in law's 90th birthday and had a horrible experience. To start we ordered a cocktail and 15 minutes later the bartender finally brought our drinks to us. Hmmmm. We also ordered wine to have with our dinner and a different server finally brought it to us. Our server was totally clueless and... More

Came here after a dress tasting with lots of different people - moms, bride, bridesmaids - with very different food preferences and everyone was able to find something they were happy with. Service was great - very prompt, friendly, and helpful. Food was ok - what you would expect from a chain restaurant serving Italian-ish food to Americans. I got... More

So, being Italian, I thought I'd take my wife out to dinner at the grill. They have s nice selection of menu items and an acceptable wine list although limited. Looking forward to a nice dinner we ordered Mama's trio (lasagna, fettuccine alfredo and ravioli) preceded by bread with oil and a Caesar salad. The wine was a nice Pinot.... More

We were about 10 and had a large round table in the back. They have a very affordable $10 lunch menu. Warm bread to start and free Tiramisu or chocolate cake ( you get to pick) for the bday girls, enough to share with all. Food was good, nothing spectacular, but again the price was good. Good service too.

The one good thing about this place is they have gluten free pasta. So practically any dish I can substitute for and that's the reason why I wanted to go. We've been to this spot about 3 times now and the service has always been slow. We've always sat in the bar as well with the anticipation that we would... More

Our server Haley made the experience all around awesome. She went above and beyond the call making sure my table was taken care of. We will definitely be back again! Thanks again Haley!

Always good. I always get to taste parts of the menu I didnt order. My wife and kids have differing tastes so we share tastes. Their build your own pasta allows you so many variations of sauce, pasta, toppings, garnishes, it is a full menu and orderform unto itself.

It appears to me that this restaurant is not as I had known it back in the East. They give a loot of food and some of the dishes are good but quite rich. The quality of the food and service is not the same. It was a dis apointment,

The fresh baked hot bread loaf that is brought to the table with olive oil and balsamic vinegar is the best. I could eat the entire loaf with a glass of wine and be satisfied. The appetizers are mostly fried choices and the meals are very garlicky. Not only will your breath smell for a couple of days but don't... More
