For a Monday night it was quite busy. We arrived just after 5pm and by 5:30 there was a wait for seating. The Monday special is two $14 or less dinners with an $8 or less appetizer for $20. The portions and flavor/quality was worth double. We were seated and greeted by smiling friendly staff. Our server Monique was extremely... More

A group of 8 friends had reservations for dinner. My first time here. Off to a rocky start. Table not ready, but it didn't take long for them to place us in the worst table in the place. Off the kitchen in the server traffic route and next to the server station. Plus we were seated at a table designed... More

There's a Pizza Hut across the road. You'll probably get a better pizza there, and I am no admirer of Pizza Hut. To be fair, the Caesar salad was very fresh-tasting, and delicious, but I absolutely couldn't bear our server, who was trying way, way too hard, in that over-familiar way that I most dislike. I loathe when a server... More

What a really nice family run place. I had the veal marsala my wife had the linguine with clam sauce. Both were just excellent and very reasonably priced. The restaurant was busy yet the service was really good. This a must for all who love Italian food. We will be back soon.

Went here to celebrate an anniversary after reading lots of good reviews by people who sounded 'food savvy'. It was a busy Friday night, but we had made a reservation, & were seated very quickly at a nice location. The atmosphere was very pleasant with soft but adequate lighting, subdued decor & music- off to a good start. Unfortunately, things... More

My husband and I ate there last night for supper. It was highly recommended by the lady at the tourist bureau. The food was outstanding as was the service. Would go back again!

This is my second visit to this restaurant, and I really enjoy it. It is one of those prized unobtrusive restaurants tucked in a mini mall setting. The interior atmosphere is roomy with a cozy feel. Sunday eve, they had live entertainment with a duo. My husband said they reminded him of Tony Orlando and Dawn, but honestly, I enjoyed... More

My husband and I ate dinner here and thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We shared a large salad that was very fresh and good. He had Italian sausage with pasta that was wonderful. I had my favorite, which is capellini with garlic, fresh chopped tomatoes, and basil. The preparation was one of the best I have ever had and much better... More
