My husband and I went for the first time last night. I like how it's served family style and a small serves 2-3 people, we had a little leftover to bring home. We had antipasti salad and lasagna, the lasagna could of had a little more sauce for my liking but it was good. It's a bit pricey since everything... More

I did not think the good quality was that great and it was s bit pricy. We were seated very fast and the entire staff greeted us at different time while headed to the table (nice). I did not like that there was not a salad included with the meal. Anyway, probably will not return any time soon!

One of the better Italian chain restaurants. The family style portions are fun and allow everyone to experience the different menu items. While I am not a fan of Italian chain restaurants, we enjoyed the meal and service.

Keep going back because of the unique 50' - 60's east coast Italian ambiance and great waiters. Quantity is always family style so plenty of it but it's just downright plain Jane in taste and smells. There are better tasting Italian restaurants.

I knew, going in, that this was a family style restaurant. I had a groupon to use, and it was just me. So I thought I'd order a dish and take the rest home to use for my lunch for the rest of the week. I can't remember the name of the dish I ordered! It was maccaroni something, with... More

We ordered dinner to go for our family. The food was ready when we arrived. When we got it home, the order was correct. The food tasted great and the portions were the same as if we were dining in. I will order again from the restaurant. It was a bit annoying to sign up for discounts and have to... More

Ok first the good. The food is very tasty. The bad, a large caesar salad $24.99!!! Really at Sam's Club you can buy a package containing 5 romaine hearts for $4.98. There wasn't 5 in our bowl!

This place needs total remodeling! The carpet looks like it's been there forever! The red walls and red string lights, the pictures on the wall doesn't really add anything rather than make you feel you're in a cluttered garage!

I love the food. Very authentic Italian food but the place is old and has not been remodeled in a while, therefore the awful closed air inside! I would love to go there but only if they would do some remodeling of some sort so when you go inside it does not feel that you are in an old smelly... More
