Food was delivered in a timely manner but was spotty. The calimari was done well but the salads were wilted. The mussels my wife... read more

Similar to Olive Garden, but more expensive. Not impress. Not worth the price, IMHO. Service was subpar.

Came here for lunch with my fiance. we sat at the bar. Took awhile to be greeted. We ordered the sandwich combo and a pasta as our entrées. For an appetizer we got a "caprese" which was awful and tasteless. We gave that right back. Service was ok but slow as bartender seemed preoccupied with other things to do for... More

We have had several meals here with a group of friends that gets together to share special occasions. I've always felt rushed like they want to serve us quickly and get us OUT as quickly and efficiently as possible so they can turn the table. The food is tasty but it is what I call "corporate" Italian, i.e. not the... More

pasta first overcooked, then undercooked on a Shrimp Scallop pasta dish. The wait was too long on try #2, so no need to try #3. If you're hungry, stay way - you may not eat at all.

I always come here for birthday dinners. The food is well portioned but slightly pricey. Service is always excellent.

I love this restaurant. Everything thing is fresh and delicious! Eat slow and try to save room for their extra ordinary desserts.

I have to say I have been to this place 2 times in the past and again in the last year because I got a gift card, I am always disappointed. When I go out I want something that is special, not something I can make better myself at home.
