Slow Service, Yummy Food

As to continually be expected, this restaurant had good tasting food and hot stuff was hot but the service was slow. Took about 105 minutes total to get food and bill for 4 people on basic meal. Server was friendly and did a good job overall but they should have more staff scheduled to support... read more

Our waiter was a new employee but he was very attentive and friendly. He made us feel very welcome. The salad is a favorite and the spaghetti was good as usual.

Good value for money. I enjoyed my chicken alfredo. My boyfriend said the brusquetta was nothing like it should be. House red wine was not all that. Service was super friendly and helpful in giving tips on where to find a hotel for the night.

Then they had us wait until 3:26 before we received our main food. Their excuse was they had a big party but we saw them... More

Good food and fast lunch service. Their salad is my favorite and they'll serve you as much as you want. And I love their individual cheese pizza with three different cheeses. It's more than enough for lunch; I always take about half of the small pizza home. The service is always top notch.

We had a party of 8 for a birthday. We were seated fairly quickly. I got a strawberry-passion fruit limonata and it was so good. I wasn't overly sweet and it was very flavorful. My husband got a cappuccino. It was good, but it was missing the sprinkle of cocoa powder on top. We decided to get the Four Course... More

While we frequent many different dining establishments throughout the country, I can't resist the Salads here! We've been here several times and have never once had a complaint. Our latest visit was on Veterans day. They honor those who are serving/have served by offering a complimentary dinner which we took advantage of. Seated immediately by a friendly hostess. everyone up... More

i can only afford to treat myself and spouse special occasions. however, i have enjoyed each and every meal that i have ever ordered. sometimes the waiter/waitresses are dealing with a crowd yet they all appear quite pleasant. the food is always clean and delicious. the portions are smaller yet you are quite filled after a meal.
