Excellent choice for a bit more casual setting

Salmon was delicious. The eggplant was a bit more fried that I would have cared for. Service was excellent and the atmosphere was very nice considering it's in the middle of the casino.

A middle of the week dinner visit when perhaps you would think one might not get the best of anything because business is not booming then. Very wrong. Greeted quite nicely immediately; seated swiftly; attended to promptly; menu selections excellent; prices not too high; food was absolutely delicious for each of us having different apps and main course as well...

As always, the food and service were top notch. Our server, Ashley, recommended the caprese pizza special when we asked about having the pizza for dinner. It was fantastic, hope they have it again. Anton, the Manager was great also, he interacts with the guests to be certain everything is top shelf.

It's fun to eat at a restaurant literally situated on the casino floor. The service was also good and the food was flavorful. The prices are a big high but I was not disappointed in general. I had a spaghetti dish.

We went there for lunch and could not have been more disappointed............and it was all the service. I can not tell you about the food, because we only had the soup, which was ok. We also ordered a salad and a sandwich.........pretty easy stuff. We waited 15 minutes to get the soup. After we were done, it was 25 minutes... More
