I had given this place rave reviews just a couple of years ago but since they changed ownership I have had some bad experiences. A few months ago I ordered the Caesar salad which had always been good in the past. This time the romaine was dark and tough and the dressing did not have it's usual fres taste. I... More

Won't be confused with a fine dinning experience on atmosphere alone,but, the food portions are generous and have great taste.You must try the fried calamara with the homemade bread. All appetizers are half -priced on Thursdays.Service is usually above average,but BYOB. Great place to dine early before a movie or trip to the Mall.

We visited BDIR for the first time this evening. It is a nice, casual place. We started with the calamari which was the best fried calamari we have had in a while. It was lightly battered and cooked perfectly. It was very tender and nicely seasoned. The salad wasn't anything special and the blue cheese dressing was prepackaged "Ken's" dressing.... More

My husband and I have eaten here several times and the food is pretty good. Had shrimp diavalo which is spicy. You get a generous portion. Subs are good too.

Nice little casual Italian dining place with great food. The place is not huge..there are mostly booths and it is located in the middle of a strip mall. They have great calzones...I especially love their spinach calzone. They have great cream of crab soup, delicious chicken Chesapeake and my husband loves their sausage & peppers.

We used to live right down the street and it used to be our Friday night place to go. Portions are enough for two meals and very reasonable. The garlic knots are to die for!!
