We had three staff wait on us - one to welcome us to our table and take a drink order, the second to take our food order and check... read more

Great family restaurant, we went there when it wasnt busy so we were served quick. The staff were attentive and constantly come back to see if we needed anything. The menu was extensive and the meals were large and filling. We didnt wait too long for the food to arrive and it was cooked perfectly. Will definitely be going back.... More

Service was very poor very inexperienced staff members! Food was well what chef would work in an Italian restraunt and not know how to cook pasta? Staff members were rude! Didn't get cutlery until we asked for it. The mains took nearly 40 minuets to come out. Never again will we go there!

Staying in a motel with no restaurant, decided to order a delivery. The Chicken Caesar salad was delivered promptly and was huge ! Very tasty. The letdown was the cardboard carton came without plastic or any cutlery what so ever. How to eat ?? Fortunately the motel office was most obliging and provided a steel fork.

Been there often. This is a good every day restaurant for Italian food. Food is nice but average. Price is all right, not so expensive with large portion.
