The first time I went, I had the fillet and it was as good as any I have ever had in Kansas. In fact, I thought it compared favorably with ones I have had in fancier restaurants in big cities out of state but at half the price. The second time I decided to try their KC Strip and it... More

I love eating here! This is my go to place when I have friends in town or when I get the hankering for some 10 dollar pizza. The staff is extremely friendly and they know us by name. They are quick to welcome you at the door with a smile and usually get you seated right away.

I have never been disappointed in this restaurant. They consistently serve quality Italian food. My personal favorite is the very creamy, rich chicken Alfredo, but the manicotti is equally as good. If you are looking for lighter fare, the Jeff Salad is amazing as well. On Wednesday nights, there is $10 pizza-which is a treat, and a local musician plays... More

The food was just okay, however, the service was very slow. Plus the waiter didn't know what drinks they had. My friend asked about a certain type of wine and the guy had no clue.

We took a friend to this restaurant while he was coming through on business. 'We' means myself, my beautiful wife, and adorable two year old daughter. We arrived around 6:30 or so. There was a short wait because of a meeting, this wasn't a problem, just 15 - 20 minutes. I overheard another group say that they called ahead, but... More

We're in town for a week for a sports competition. Checked this place out because of Tripadvisor recommendations. And guess what, what a surprise: we LOVED it. Italian, plus steaks. We had a Ruben pizza, which felt like the weirdest thing, but turned out one of the best pizzas I have tried. Also had the filet mignon, which was tender... More
