My family has always had good food and good service at this restaurant. We love the endless salad and bread sticks.

Sunday afternoon- place was busy! Not sure what the problem was but had a hard time getting our server. Table next to us us asked a server going by for drinks after they had been seated 10 min. I was watching and decided to time it! The place was not clean! In my small town in Georgia it is immaculate!

Not authentic Italian, but it hits the spot and you always leave full. I always get the create your own, and you can't go wrong with the Asiago cream sauce.

Although very crowded, the staff took care of us & the kitchen was timely. $60 covered an appetizer, salad, shared main course, dessert, 2 sodas and a coffee. Salad is crisp & chilled, appetizer generous and rosemary chicken delicious. Always love the Tiramisu. Consistency.
