My future husband and I always came here, the last few time we came the food was over cooked dry. The service is good but the food went downward.

I live in a nearby town and have been here several times over the past 2 years. I always find the food to be very good, although the portions are HUGE. Only downside is that it is a BYOB place, so if you don't know that ahead of time you may be disappointed. This is one of 3 restaurants in... More

We have been going here to this BYOB restaurant for several years and happened to go there during Worcester restaurant week. The regular menu offers great Veal, seafood and chicken dishes and during restaurant week your salad, entree and dessert were available on a limited menu for $23.15. The Seafood platter with mussels, calamari, shrimp and haddock was a meal... More

Pizza crust was not thin. It was puffy and doughy. No taste of the wood oven. Toppings were junk level ingredients. Not a chance of me going back for pizza.

Arrived on a Wednesday just after 6PM, restaurant was very busy, but started to clear out soon after. Ordered Chicken dishes and both were very good, our waitress was welcoming and she also provided excellent service, an asset to the restaurant. A great little restaurant, just be sure you BYOB and enjoy some great food.

Was here for a birthday dinner. There were 14 of us. Sara was our waitress. She was wonderful. We all hadn't seen each other in a while, and Sara gave us the time to talk and catch up, yet she was checking in frequently. The food was great. We had the strawberry salad with steak tips, lobster Alfredo, veal, chicken... More

This is a decent family restaurant. The main room is not very big, but there is a lot of natural light that comes through the windows. It's a nice, clean place. We had Kelly as a waitress and she was wonderful. We ordered the coconut shrimp for the appetizer. It came out hot and fast. The shrimp was crunchy, but... More

I go to this restuarant about 3 times per year. It is a good place to meet friends. It is also a bring your own bottle which many of our friends like as it keeps the cost down. Food is very good and you always have leftovers to bring home. Service is good to excellent and the hostess remembers her... More

Probably the worst chicken parmasean I have ever eaten! My freind Wally lost a days pay due to sickness in the a.m. My own fault 4 strikes and your out at this dump. The chicken was a frozen pattie that they got from McDonald's. The only good thing was the byob. Oh yeah bring your Wallet! !!
