My co-worker and I stopped in after a long day of travel and work. The atmosphere was nice and calm. Our server stopped by for drink orders and brought us some warm bread w/oil and herbs...tasty. I ordered the veal parmigiana. Their sauce was fabulous, but the veal was undercooked and tough. Veal should melt in your mouth......I recommend the... More

We ate here for our anniversary dinner. The chicken parmigiana was fabulous and my husband loved his other chicken dinner too.

Service was ok. However I can't say the food was. My food tasted spoiled. I figured it was just the type of cheese used on my food. Something from that night definitely didn't agree with me. I came home sicker than a dog. I know it was something that I ate there because I was fine before that.

Family dinner time & our first time here. The servers were very good, as was the desserts. Typical "chain" food, at $20/person, as expected from a corporate restaurant. Enjoyed the clean stylish decor.

Rendezvoused with my wife's former college roommate and her husband for dinner. The hostess seated us at a table in a cubby which allowed privacy as well as enhanced our ability to converse and hear. Our server was a wonderfully friendly and cooperative older male (Derick) who identified popular menu items and drinks. He also told us his personal favorites.... More

I like to go on Wednesday. Bottles of wine are half price. The bow tie festival dish is delicious and they have lots of other pasta dishes as well. It is a good place to go for dinner.

It is clean, the service is wonderful, and the food is good. I love the house dressing for their salads, as well as the options for lunch and dinner. They have a wonderful variety of Italian Sodas and we have never been disappointed when we pick this restaurant for dinner.

One of our favorite Italian restaurants-even if it is a chain place. The olive oil bread dip has crunchy chips of garlic to flavor the oil and with hot bread and wine, you almost don't need anything else! Angel hair pasta with artichokes is our favorite dish-all the complex flavors hit your taste buds in all the right spots! Call... More
