Bland bland bland, and over priced with mediocre service. What happened there? My kids noodles were over cooked, tasteless and in oil soup. Yuck. Mine were over cooked and in tasteless marinara. I won't go back and wish I had read some recent reviews.

Late dinner (8:00 is late with two kids), marred by terrible service and overpriced food. The place was nearly empty, so the time it took to get our food was ridiculous. Kids had plain pasta and chicken fingers. Neither was impressive based on other reviews...More

Took family from out of town here and will not be going back. Limited menu, no spaghetti, fettuccini or lasagna on menu and it is ridiculous that a $24 entree has to buy a side salad for another $10! It iis sad to see it...More

My husband and I decided to try this place tonight...June 25th! I watched the person I think was the manager, check with everyone in our area to ask about their dinner except us. We are African American and I guess didn't belong. The area restaurants...More

Good Italian cuisine in a cozy but comfortable setting. Very reliable when you crave carbs and garlic and good red wine.

We decided to try this restaurant again due to the new chef. Having only dined here once before several years ago, we thought we would give it another chance. The dinner menu is quite creative but the actual food quality and presentation leaves much to...More
