We went on a Tuesday. My birthday and first time. You definitely need reservations, the place was packed! Tables were very close together and the restaurant was very noisy. Inside and outside of the place was very well decorated. It had the modern feel of an Italian joint. Nice bar, ice cold beers and STRONG mixed drinks! Menu has plenty... More

The mashed potatoes, if they were even potatoes, were room temperature at best, the whipped butter did not even melt on them, just sat there. The... More

Mr. D doesn't sit at the end of the bar anymore and several veteran staff are no longer there, but the food and service is still the best. It's better if you are prepared to wait a bit to be seated, because this is a family and friends place. Make new friends at the bar, Jerry has been behind the... More

Please note, we arrived right before the dinner rush without a reservation. We were seated right away. Our server was very pleasant, always a smile on her face. Our meal was excellent and we plan to make this one of our favorites and will recommend this restaurant to all of our family and friends.

I enjoyed their Monday night special-NY strip steak. The bread was crusty and fresh, the salad good and the pasta side dish was excellent. Service was also good and attentive. My left overs were boxed, wrapped and put into a carrier bag. Only a minor quibble- they charged $1.50 for the creamy blue cheese dressing without telling me at time... More
