Just the two of us

I would not have thought of getting a steak there. My husband did....it was cooked perfectly and was delish. I had tortellini w marinara. It was hot and good. Tiramisu-- very good.

We used to eat here about once per month, either with some friends or just the 2 of us. The service has dropped considerably and the food is just plain awful. There is no other way to put it. During our last visit, even though the place was half full, I had to continually get up and look for our... More

Came here with my husband for an anniversary dinner. Very homey. The wait staff treated us very kindly and took a lot of care in suggestions for our meal. The husband had the Delmonico Steak, which was wonderfully seasoned and perfectly cooked. I had the more-than-generous portion of the Perfect Storm Mac and Cheese. The pasta was very good, Mac...

Went here with family on a Thursday night. Very good pizza and lobster mac and cheese appetizer. Nice, friendly waitress and relaxing atmosphere. Prices were average. Would go back.

We love this restaurant. We always have excellent service and wonderful meals. We have favorites from the menu but try different items at times as well and everything has been delicious.

We fully enjoyed our meals. My husband ordered the chicken parm w/ a side of angel hair. It was huge. I ordered shrimp with white clam sauce on Linguine. I couldn't finish it. Service was decent. The room we were in had a number of young kids. So it was kind of loud. But that should be expected for a... More

My first visit, but not my last. I ordered Char Grilled Delmonico steak. Perfect in every way and perfectly seasoned. Wait staff was accommodating and personable. Very comfortable atmosphere.

What happened here ? Terrible service. I can see why everyone has a coupon. When a restaurant starts offering coupons continually you know something is amiss. Skip this place. Not with your money.

Now I know why they are giving such a great deal with coupons... The veal parm was nasty and my wife had the eggplant parm and only took two bites.The worst sauce I have ever tasted in an Italian restaurant. Don't waste the trip to try this place, total disappointment.
