We had a business lunch here for about 20 people and the food was very good. Meatballs were excellent. Not sure if they serve family style all the time or just because we had a big group, but it was a good experience. The alfredo sauce is fabulous.

Begin your meal with an outstanding endless salad and mouthwatering garlic bread. The main course has a variety of options with our favorite being the lasagna. It is in a charming building with lots of warmth. Or maybe some of that was caused by the wine.

Red sauce is delicious. Love the salad and bread. Great bar area. they have changed their bar stools and upgraded their wine glasses. I prefer the bar area for seating the main dinning area is nice but I do not like being seated in the back room. The tiramisu is the best in town and maybe the best anywhere!

We were in the area for a family vacation. Our table was reserved and ready immediately when we got there. Good for 6:30 on Saturday. The service was prompt and efficient. Our server just seemed to be on autopilot. The food took longer than expected. Everyone enjoyed their meals, but nobody raved. I'd go back, but wouldn't consider it a... More

Amazing Italian restaurant! Wonderful food, service and atmosphere. They are kid friendly and have 4 different dining areas. Food was better than Olive Garden! Would recommend to everyone!

We were there for a dinner on a Friday night. It is a very warm and welcoming place, people are very friendly and service was good. The food was somewhat disappointing. Not bad - just average. My chicken dish was bland and had little taste. The garlic bread served before the meal was good, salad was the best part of... More

Funny how people either had a great meal or a mediocre one. Perhaps it's the chef that's cooking that day? My meal was mediocre. I ordered the seafood with shrimp, scallops, and crab meat (I think) in a cream sauce with linguini. It couldn't have been more bland. I added some salt and pepper from the table, but it really...
