A chain restaurant with poor atmosphere. It is very noisy,and the food trys to lend itself to Italian cuisine. However, the establishment' fails it's objective because all of the food tends to have the same flavor!

Shopping in Altoona? Soup and salad here will make your day. If it's a dinner you're after, the mixed grill or beef tips with portabella mushroom tortellini are my choices

The meals are good but it can be very crowded and at times you are not able to even move your chair. Not a place to go if you want to sit and chat with friends. Staff at times try to hurry you thru so they can seat the next goup.
