We have eaten here many times and the experience is always great. From the efficiency in seating during the busy times to the food quality and Italian authenticity to the friendly waitstaff to the cleanliness of the bathrooms, just a greatly managed restaurant and a place to visit without worrying about how the food will be. BUT, whoever the brunette... More

I have had some issues here, very minor. I just might have to have some food to go very soon. I love the linguine with white clam sauce. All food is great my family enjoys the private rooms they offer for dining in with small or large groups.

We have been here a few times now, the wait is long, but the food and service is good. Big bar crowd, but I'm sure it's due to the long wait. Our meals were good, not a big portion, but good flavor. Cocktails are made well.

Great steaks but the rest of the meal wasn't too impressive. Atmosphere is very gimmicky and felt like a restaurant in an amusement park. Wait staff also average. Might go back but would rather try somewhere else

If you're looking for fine dining, this is not for you. On a Saturday night with a 6:00 reservation, we were seated after 7, after having been told the reservation would cut our wait time to 30 minutes. While waiting at the bar, we were constantly in the way of waitstaff lifting heavy trays, chairs, and several times, small tables... More

Waitress escorted us to a booth by a window. My wife complained that this location was too cold. Without hesitation we were shown to another booth near an inside wall with nice chandelier lighting. Service was great. Fresh bread but entrees were just luke warm.
