Had lunch here with the family, and had a very good experience. We were greeted at the door in a very friendly manner, and told we could sit where ever we wanted. Server came over immediately for our drink and took our order. The food was prepared perfectly, and everything was great. Pasta was cooked perfectly, the sauce was just... More

My Fiancé and I finally got to go out on a date night and we are so happy we chose the right place since we do not get out that much. The atmosphere was beautiful with dim lighting and light music. The service was amazing as wells the food. They were very busy but we still were seated and served... More

I really want to like this place, but it's just not good. The service is good but the food is terrible.

We were out for husband's birthday dinner, and since we had gotten a gift certificate from our daughter that was given to us on Valentine's Day, so finally we decided to use it..made reservations for 6:30 p.m. When we arrived the place was pretty much empty. The atmosphere was very nice and back grown music and lights dimmed. We were... More

My dad and I have lunch here at least once a month. I take visiting friends and family here each chance I can get. The menu is akin to Not Your Average Joe's. The price is very good for the quality of the food. The Paninis are AMAZING - I have literally dreamt about them. I love the Super Buono,... More

The evening started off nicely with a warm welcome and really good hot bread and dipping oil with spices. From there it went downhill. We realize that a new person was being trained and when you have to ask for butter three times and remind the server to bring the wine, we gave it a pass. I might add that... More

For lunch with my girlfriend - place is bright and clean, staff friendly and accommodating. And the food ... VERY tasty! Tuscan turkey panini is complex and satisfying, pastrami panini is nice and spicy. Well above any expectations for a first time here.

My wife and I are now regular visitors since the ownership changed hands earlier this year. You will probably note that the recent reviews reflect the new and improved venue. We stopped going there a few years ago when the food and service started to decline. After seeing the "new ownership" sign we decided to give it a try. Everything... More
