Pizza was absolutely great, crisp crust, spicy sauce and just enough cheese. Unfortunately, though the lasagna was meaty, it was cold half way through, I mean real cold. Quality control needs some attention.

Last month, I had lunch, after golf, before coming home and my wife wanted to eat out for dinner. She picked this restaurant which was fine by me. I was thinking of a light dinner, salad and appetizer. The service was a little slow, and to my amazement, when I ordered the Calamari as an appetizer, they were all out.... More

The food...which by the way is my most important criterion was as it has been the last 20 times I was there...GREAT. Take a look at the... More

Owner yelling right in front of us at the staff and very rude. I read some of the other previous comments and it appears there are many about this. Try D.J's or the nice restaurant next door that overlooks the fountain. Locals are banning this place.

Stopped here for dinner on recommendation; awesome happy hour drinks and meals. Homemade flatbread fresh out of the brick oven...pasta with meatballs delish! Lasagna? Oh yes with fresh mad pasta sheets. Ask about their homemade desserts, mmmm

This place needs a lot of help . Between the Owners yelling in front of customers to there staff and the staff being very forgetful. I would not recommend this place for sure. When you go for dinner the atmosphere should be relaxed not stressful.

For 5 years on and off we have been supporters of this restaurant...good and bad. Left for a few years because of indifference by owners and poor food and after Robert came there to do Restaurant Impossible went uphill again.

Where do I start - when we walked in they could have cared less. We waited to be seated and finally got a table out on the patio even though there were empty tables in side. Again we waited for service. However the tables around us - who were obviously all locals were getting all kinds of attention. Finally we... More

The manager or owner was a mean little woman who berated the staff openly and loudly. Our server was good but obviously harangued. I really like the new decor. It is a definite improvement over the previous incarnation based on a television show's idea of homey Italian. The food is good, but the atmosphere is at best unwelcoming and at... More
