The Server was totally nice. The cook burned our first pizza; so management came and told us ours would becoming out soon. The pizza sauce was thinly laid, too sweet, and small amount of the three items selected; plus not much cheese.

Really enjoyed the food and service. Was with a large group and the waiter was outstanding. Loved the Sicilian Chicken soup as a starter and had the Veal Chop. It was large enough for me to take half home and eat it the next day....More

It is okay, but definitely not something to be overly excited about. Had spaghetti and meatballs. The noodles were overcooked, the sauce was runny and the meatballs were bland. Basic chain quality. Not terrible but I would not go back.

Went there on a Wed. night. They had pizza and wine special. Didn't get any wine but my son got a pizza, pretty cheap, and loved it. My seafood was excellent and my wife liked her pasta. Service was great. Didn't give it five stars...More
