First time in this restaurant. Service is excellent, young staff that know what they are serving. I had eggplant parmigiana and it was to die for. Before that they serve you all you can eat salad and huge bread sticks. The salad seemed to be like a chef salad with all the fixings. Prices were not bad. I will definitely... More

We took my mother-in-law to dinner here for her birthday last year. It was a typical Saturday night (not a holiday). We waited roughly 40 minutes to get seated, then another 20 minutes just for a waiter to acknowledge us. When we finally got our meals (factor in another half hour), there were mistakes in the order, and the food... More

We decided to come here one Sunday because all of the brunch places were packed. The bar area was empty except for 2 other people so we figured we'd get better service here than in the dining room. The bar had a football themed menu that was really reasonable. There were $5 appetizers and some cheaper entrees on it. We... More

If we had more options, I'd give service a 3 1/2 and food and atmosphere 2 1/2 each. My vegetables over penne pasta was the best thing about the place. It could've used more seasoning, but the veggies were cooked perfectly, still firm and colorful. My friend's seafood platter was a mixed bag -- the scallops were good enough, but... More

My brother and I took our 93 year old mom out for dinner and we were pressed for time so we decided to stick close by and eat here. I had been here in the long past when it was an excellent place to dine. It then went downhill fast and we stopped going there. I was somewhat surprised last... More

The food here is really good taste authentic and the portions are a nice size. The atmosphere is kinda rustic but it's a nice place to take the family or a nice first or last date.
