We started with house rolls which are good but a hair too garlickly for our taste. Then had fried calamari as an appetizer and it was horrible. Presentation was poor as the portion would have fit into a saucer. Add to that that however it was cooked it came out like old bubble gum. The house salad was barely average... More

We went here with friends and had a really lovely dinner. The service was top drawer and everyone really enjoyed their dinner. The only thing was that the portions were so huge and could easily fed two people. For a non-season Saturday night, the restaurant was packed so it seems that all these people are there for the meal that... More

What a delightful place. Food good and portions are huge. Wait staff very good and knowledgable. They have really big round tables that are so nice for several couples to get together. They seat ten. Noise level is acceptable.

First time here. Huge menu and even larger portions. Excellent service. Everyone was very pleased with their meal. Only criticism is that they offer but one selection of wine by the glass. The Chardonay was from Argentina and very thin.
