You just can't beat this place! Salad is crisp and the dressing is wonderful! The salad is unlimited as well! Entrées are very good and reasonably priced. If you want a lovely Italian dinner at a good price with great service, then this is the place to go.

The hostess were not friendly. When you walk in they stare at you until you say something to them. The wait was only 5 minutes which wasn't bad. I went on a Saturday night which are super busy. My waitress was great! She had many tables and still managed to never disappear throughout the night. Food as always was amazing.... More

The server was good; the waiting time was too long observing restaurant was empty for a Saturday late lunch at 3:30pm. The food quality horrible starting with the appetizer the calamaris a very small portion considering the cost. When the food was served it looks overheated waiting to be released to the table; I ask for the classic tour of... More

Stopped for lunch by myself. Service is very efficient. Complimentary salad is very well served and perfectly seasoned. As entrée I had the herb grilled salmon that was fine but the portion seems a bit small for a $18 meal.

I love the soup, salad and breadsticks, pretty much get that every time. Our server was too busy and had to be asked several times for the same things.

Received a gift card for Father's Day and met friends here for a delicious meal this week. Wait staff was exceptionally attentive and helpful. The peach sangria was a special treat. Herb flavored salmon was moist and enough that we had a second meal at home with the left overs. The soup and salad is always a favorite and their... More

Overall it was a great meal, waiter was really good and entertaining. Only thing that really bothered us was at 715pm they started deep cleaning the dinning room with us and 3 other tables still eating. I understand they like to clean up early, but they didn't close until 10pm and having all the lights turned half way and smell... More
