We were there with a large group and they were unprepared and service suffered. So if going in a large group make sure to notify them well in advance.

the service is horrible. long wait for server to come to table and then to return. this was our second time here. the first time was better but not great for service. the food is good but the wait to get it is probably not worth it. but the salad dressing is wonderful and available for sale by the bottle....

We go here once or twice a year and every time is as good as the last. The wait staff is great and knowledgeable and the food is excellent. The portions are big which make the prices right. The decor of the place is great. It follows what the downtown district is doing with all the business that are in... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants. I love the food. I love the music. I love the atmosphere. The prices are about what one would expect for good Italian food. The entrees come with a wonderful salad and garlic bread which is a real treat in itself. Excellent wines are also available if desired.

Make reservations. They were busy and luckily we did have a reservation. However upon entering no one was at the hostess stand that asked to wait to be seated in a small entryway that was filling up fast. Once someone did arrive they began to speak to the most recent group to enter. Little organization and appeared to be very... More

Found this place using Restaurant.com. We ordered over the required $50 in food according to the coupon that we had from restaurant.com. Then, when we attempted to pay, the manager came rushing out telling us that they didn't sign up for this and that "four people had tried to use these last night". He apologized and blamed the whole thing... More

Don't compare this to their establishment in Galena, Illinois. There is no comparison. You should skip this place. The wait staff is bored; the food is a bit bland; the prices are much too high for what you get. Having said that, the excellent salad and the garlic bread lead you to believe you are in for a great meal.... More

We were staying at the Grand Harbor and knew that we had seen this restaurant but had a heck of a time finding it. Even the GPS wasn't helpful but keep on searching and it is right in front of your nose but not well lit. The food was very yummy, the veal tender and succulent. Garlic bread and salad... More

Who knew the Italian family photos were linked to living people? Eating here offers excellent food quality and preparation, some of the best service staff and a fun atmosphere of real Italy (trust me, I've lived there). Tonight while enjoying my favorite "seafood millennium" and my wife the angel hair pasta with extra sauce and meatballs are no extra charge,... More
