Would have been great if the capellini primavera i ordered wasn't ziti with spicy red sauce and broccoli rob. Nothing worse than dining with the family and getting a completely wrong meal. Waiter looked baffled himself. Offered to fix but who wants to wait while everyone is eating.

Been coming here for dinners and special occasions for the last 10 years; and have always been happy. The food is very good. The pasta fresh and the entrees very good. The prices are reasonable for this chain. Atmosphere is very good. Service has always been great. The noise volume can be high when crowded. You should call ahead for... More

I've been here a couple of times recently. Here you'll find good food, service, and a nice atmosphere and a very clean restaurant. I haven't been disappointed. Well prepared fresh food. Lee the manager is very attentative, making sure all guests have a great dining experience. On the weekend this place gets really busy -- call ahead to reserve a... More

My last visit here was not so good. It is used to be good, but with each of our more recent meals here, the service and food has steadily gone down. The last time, the food tasted bland and the lettuce in our salads were all wilted. As for our server, you could tell he does not like his job.... More

Everything is good about this place-- the food, the service and the prices. It is top notch, especially for a chain restaurant. The food is fresh and well prepared. It can get a bit noisy at times but I try to sit in the back, away from screaming kids. :)

Alex T was our server, a very forgetful slouch with server skills better suited for a shoe salesman. Upon our arrival we noted that there were several tables that had not been bussed after the last guests left...12 to be exact, I counted. These tables were in the same condition when we left an hour later. The host/hostess was pleasant... More

Our server was great. We didn't order wine and she was fine with that. In fact, she went and got ice for our water. The food was ok, served hot and promptly. The place was uncomfortably warm inside even though it was a cool night outside.

It's probably been at least 5 years since we last ate here, but we were looking for something different, so figured we give it a shot. The server had an attitude right from the start. Just because we didn't order wine when he asked, that's when he frowned and you could tell by his body language, that he wasn't thrilled.... More

I had tried this place about four years ago and wasn't impressed, but thought I'd give it a shot for lunch today. I ordered a combination lunch of green salad and a small bowl of capellini with pomidoro sauce, which is a basic tomato sauce. The salad was a bit wilted, the lettuce appeared to be old, and the croutons... More

I remember this place from several previous visits, few years ago. They had a great range of good food. They had a very good service. They were also waiters singing opera. This place was always crowded. Last Saturday we stopped there for lunch. Restaurant was almost empty. A small selection in menu. Service below average. The biggest disappointment was the... More
