I was alone and Travelodge behind restaurant suggested I go to the Bar and ask for Lunch Menu no matter the time of day. It was perfect for single serving because restaurant is family style.

First time ever at this family style restaurant. It was busy, loud, festive, and filled with lots of conversation and laughter. I have experienced this at other restaurants, but this one had a different feel to it. It felt like you walked into a large family gathering where everyone had their assigned seating and everyone just hung out. I liked... More

We always tend to order the same dinners on our visits - the house salad and the San Remo pasta. Both are delicious. The salad has a great vinaigrette. The San Remo pasta has chicken, artichokes, sun dried tomatoes and a creamy, garlicky sauce that is addictive. This is a great choice for families as the meals are served family-style... More

This restaurant serves very typical Italian American food that puts other chain Italian restaurants to shame. The portions are HUGE and the atmosphere is conducive to large and boisterous gatherings so I wouldn't come here for a romantic date night. For a chain, the food, for the most part, maintains a very homemade, long time cooking flavor. The salads are... More

Lots of pictures to look at on the walls and I mean LOTS. Food was good but average and there was plenty of it. If you walk away hungry it's your fault because it comes on huge platters. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Planned birthday dinner for 22-year-old daughter. Her choice, not mine. Made reservations online for a party of five, which was very convenient and were seated promptly upon arrival. The restaurant is sectioned into small “rooms” that you discover as you navigate through the maze of corridor. I found this appealing as you can have your own private table or room... More

What can I say, the food, the staff, the atmosphere was fantastic!!! We had reservations so I cannot say how long it takes to get seated if you just walk in. The atmosphere is old Italian. You will NEVER leave this place hungry. Love it, Love it, Love it. Nothing bad to say about it at all.

My husband and I treated our son & 6 of his college roommates (along with his little sister) to his birthday dinner here, and were very glad we did! We were seated promptly on a Saturday night, despite the size of our party. The service was friendly and attentive. The kitchen was a bit behind with our orders, but it... More

The food is plentiful but the noodles in the lasagna were way past mush, a little too much ricotta didn't help the texture. The marinara was pretty much tasteless. Also the eggplant parm was not evenly fried, that crispiness was only on the edges. not good! The mixed greens salad was plentiful and the dressing was very good but for... More
