We went here, were seating quickly and ordered our drinks. The waiter came back and asked us if we had any questions about the menu. I told the waiter I was allergic to garlic and asked which meals didn't contain any. The waiter proceeded to tell me that they have had this problem before with someone and that everything on...

This restaurant was walking distance from our new condo so we gave it a try. When you enter it is dark and reminded me of the old all-you-can-eat family style eating establishments my parents took me to when I was a child. The place is quaint, service was very good, and servers were friendly and helpful with the menu. They... More

We were looking for a little higher end restaurant and instead found a lovely family place. It was packed on a Friday night. The bartender was lethargic, but service improved once in the dining room.Salad bar is included with most meals. First time for Veal Saltimboca and I loved it. My wife, with Italian roots, never thought she could have... More

Standard Italian food, decent service and reasonable prices. The salad bar provides many options for my middle-aged eyes, a little more lighting by the salad bar would be appreciated. For an entree, the egg plant parm is fantastic.

This restaurant was close to our hotel so thought we would give it a try. Quite busy for a Tuesday and was quickly seated and given the menu. You get a lot for your $ as the price for your main meal includes soup and the salad bar plus hot bread. Salad bar was extensive but was a little messy,... More

We decided that a casino buffet was too much and this restaurant was near our hotel. I love Italian and my husband tolerates it, as long as he gets some type of seafood or meat. Tep's had a great salad bar with soup and all kinds of toppings. I had Pasta Primavera which is one of my favorites. I almost... More
