This was by far the worst restaurant we have ever been to. We are New Yorkers and did not expect New York italian food. We were not expecting however what was placed before us. Overdone pasta not drained properly with horrible sauce dumped on top. The salad was rancid and the dressing was placed on the table in a milk... More

I just did an online order from here, for delivery. The order arrived exactly on time. That's where the fun ends. ALWAYS check your order before you let the delivery person leave. There was a 25% accuracy rate. When we called them back to let them know, they said they'd correct it immediately. Then, get this.. they wanted the mistake... More

food was absolutely fantastic. service was excellent. The shrimp in my dish was so fresh. the bread was wonderful. It is a small place, so you may have to wait. But by all means, don't miss it. The food is fantastic and prices were reasonable. A huge portion!

We ate here 2 nights in a row because the food and service were both that good! Prices were very good aswell, and you get a lot of food for your money! We came here after seeing a menu in a brochure at our hotel. The car park was full so we were worried we might not get a table.... More

This place was packed when we where there BUT the service was still good. Food was good. Not great, but good. You get SO much food; prices were great. It's loud and crowded but the staff does a very good job of keeping things moving. I will go back.

I really enjoyed my dinner here. The menu was varied, both price and selection. If you enjoy beer, they have a huge collection to choose from to take home. I'd definite go again and pick something else savor. The service was excellent. Desert choices were good.

We were able to give all that wanted seconds, seconds with some left over!! The staff on the phone were very helpful and had us change... More

After looking at a promotional ad in a tabloid we decided to give this place a try. And Wow ! We were pleasantly surprised. Though we had to wait a little while for the table, but the quality & the quantity of food more than made up the waiting pains. Great food, greater serving size and the cherry on the... More

This place REALLY is a hidden gem! We ate here while visiting CA at Christmas time. I was a little apprehensive at first, the place looked kind of sketchy & was adjacent to a liquor store. That changed the minute we walked in and got hit with the most delicious aroma ever! The host was friendly and right away asked... More
