Nice dining experience on a very hot day. We chose inside. Our salads were just right, bread warm, entrees excellent. I liked portion size options. Waitstaff was very attentive, although a very busy time.

We ate lunch here on a busy Saturday. I would recommend obtaining a reservation as they were full. We both had salad entrees and they were very good. Their sauce for the breadsticks is really good, too.

I grew up eating my immigrant grandmother's homemade Italian food, so I am very picky about eating at Italian restaurants! I am a ravioli fan and theirs is darn near close to Grandma's. Their lasagna is delicious as are their appetizers and salads. You won't...More
