This is a nice quiet atmosphere (we sat outside). Everyone choose different items, so we were all able to sample each plate. (no double-dipping)

I watch Restaurant Impossible on the Food Network and Chef Robert Irvine needs to visit this place. All the food is frozen. None of the pasta is made fresh. This is not Italy. It's Ragu and it's horrible. The menu is not creative and the soup is out of a can. Yuck!!!!

We ate in the Bar area and received such excellent, friendly, service. The pizza and salad were just what we needed at that hour. It was delicious!

During our visit I asked if I could order one of the smaller steaks of the lunch menu and the waitress said yes. When I ordered, I again specified I wanted the smaller $20-10oz lunch menu steak. The steak I received was overdone and tough. Upon receiving the bill I was charged for the larger steak which was an extra... More
