Went there with my niece and get young daughter. She lives in a small town and doesn't eat out often. Should have known what was in store as the hostess "lost track of us" as she started talking to someone. Waited for about 7-8 min for her to finish her conversation and finally seat us. Then came waitstaff service. Horrible.... More

The food is always great! They will always offer any dinners with a lunch portion so feel free to scope the whole menu when trying to decide what to eat day or night

This place is awesome. I went back the second night and ordered the same dish. Angel hair pasta and artichokes and I added shrimp. the hot bread and olive oil is wonderful. Generous wine pour too. I sat at the bar and read the paper and they were more than accomodating.

I always love coming here because there food is great! Olive Garden isn't in the same Category as this restaurant . There food is hot, serve fresh, and they have a large menu selection. Even though I do love olive garden's salad, this might be my favorite now

We had a family graduation dinner here. The variety of food is good. Everyone found something they enjoyed. The fresh bread to get started was great. Nice warm and crunchy. Portions of food are large and delicious. I had the combo with lasagna, chicken parmesan and spaghetti. More than enough for one person. Service was fast and efficient.

Me and my husband went and the staff was very friendly! Service was good and the door was too. My husband got the lasagna and it wasn't to much brag on but the skillet meals were very good!

We want a good Italian dinner and got a great one! The food was outstanding but our waitress Sayta (sorry I didn't catch her name properly) made our evening. She brought everything we asked for and even forgave my dropping the bread on the floor by providing us with a fresh loaf!

First time and pleased. We had the skillet pasta with shrimp which was very good, but could have used a few more Shrimp. The dipping sauce and bread is the best we have ever had. Service was very good. Noise level is very energetic. We would gladly dine here again.
