Average restaurant with pretty good drinks

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... read 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

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.

Great Italian food; location is attached to Ramada Inn so parking is very little unless you use the hotel's parking which makes the guests upset.

A family style Italian restaurant, they accommodated a party of 15 pretty last minute and the service was great. Had 3 servers always on top of drinks, wine, salad, and all helping when that many dinners came out at once. Basic Italian food but good and fresh. Will try again when out that way.
