4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014 NEW

Dined as a quartet and there were three excellent meals and one that was just OK. The Ahi Tuna, the butternut squash ravioli and the lasagna were all excellent. The veal was not as tender as it should have been. Entrees came with soup (good) or salad (very good) although for the prices being charged, I found it silly to... More

We've been living about a mile and a half from this restaurant for over 10 years, but the Dunhill's steakhouse that used to be there was not a favorite. A rainy night in July became the time we tried the "new" restaurant. 1000 degree pizza was very good...4 cheeses of yummy. The Bolognese was rich and comforting. The scallops over... More

It was decent enough. Typical Italian place. We had a 9 hour drive into McHenry, and while it was a bit heavy of a meal, it was fairly well prepared. I had the spaghetti, which was well prepared. The meat sauce was a bit on the heavy side but otherwise very tasty. Would eat here again.

We decided to stop here as it is close to where my mom lives & she had never been there. We had been by a few times but it never looked like many people were ever there......found out later they did not open until dinner time during the day was the reason no cars when we went by. We walked... More

It was my first time eating here and we must have gotten the worlds worst server. There was a waitress that was watching and picking up the slack for our waiter. She notified management about our distress and he came over and offered a "special Marzano pizza". I thought it was bland. The other food we had was average, salad... More

This is a small restaurant that I had a chance to visit because there was a meeting I attended. The service was excellent and prompt. We were seated in a private room and it was very quiet. Food was also good.

I had the Tuna when here for a business meal while staying at the Hampton Inn next door. The Tuna steak was seared rare and served with fresh veggies that I asked to keep the butter off of. The tuna came with a peppercorn sauce that was very tasty and didn't drown the fish while letting you enjoy the combined... More

Like many reviews I stopped in while being a guest of the adjacent Hampton Inn. It was $3 Mondavi wine night (Tuesdays) so the dinner tab was very resonable. Food was average, I hit the seafood section instead of pasta or pizza which I assume they are known for. Service was spot on, there were more servers than patrons on... More

I stay next door at the Hampton Inn on business. This is one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. Not just on the road but in my entire life. The place is really big and offers a different atmosphere depending on where you want to sit. Since I am usually alone I always sit on the lounge... More

I have grown so bored of area restaurants. So, getting excited about a "pizza place" is not what I would expect. The ambiance is stylish, comfortable, fancy enough for date night, yet casual enough for bringing your well-behaved children. I have heard rumors to not get anything but pizza from here, but after my first visit last night, I am... More
