What may have worked for them in the past is certainly not what works today. The place needs a complete renovation to get rid of all the old stuff that has been there too long. The food was average at best and really is nothing you would want to come back to enjoy. Yes it caters to a big groups,... read more

We looked at all of the empty tabels while people waited to be seated as we enjoyed our drinks. After ordering our second drink we were... More

The salad I had was very nice, well-balanced and overall tasty. I had a piece of chicken there as well it was dry, small and really had no... More

We had our work's Christmas party here, a large party of around 50 people. We were seated in the back section near the restrooms. Even with our large group, we had great friendly service, always refilling our drinks without question. The bread was always hot when place on our tables. The salad was fresh and good. The pasta and sauce... More

I normally avoid "chain" restaurants, but my team at work selected this restaurant as our "Holiday Lunch" spot. The portions were generous, the flavors and textures were spot on, and everyone had a great time. The family-style service lends itself well to larger groups. I can't imagine a part of 1 or 2 being able to enjoy it as much.... More

The food is exceptionally good and with the ambiance of Italy, it makes for a perfect place to be. To this day we still go quite frequently and of course on our anniversary every year. We... More

Went with my daughter just for a pizza lunch. The smells from this place drift for blocks! Very heavily spiced! Neither of us felt very well after eating the pizza! We never went back.
