I recomend to visit this restaurant, so the food, wine, and service is excellent. The chicken gnochi soup is perfect also the steak. Alisha is an excellent server,

Went with our party of 6. Meal was fantastic. I wish the Olive Garden never left Canada. Would go back to this one for sure. The only thing is bring a sweater. We were all freezing!
