This restaurant is great if you are hungry...with a large group...and don't mind sharing. The food is okay. The hot garlic balls are a huge hit. The dishes are HUGE and easily shared.

Delicious Italian food with normal portions and good prices. Patio seating is best for fresh air and SB atmosphere.

Brought the family here after wondering around downtown on a Saturday. We were told a table would be ready in 20 minutes, we waited over an hour. This seems to be the standard operating proceedure. Once seated, the table service was good and the pasta...More
