Variety of Italian food - pizza, pasta salads, salad bar, spaghetti with multiple sauces, alfredo sauce, bread sticks, dessert bar with several choices and ice cream. I liked the food and the service was good. There is also a game room for children to play games.

I've been here before. It reminds me slightly of Pizza Ranch as it is a buffet style. There is a salad bar, soups, pizzas and pastas. Then also a dessert buffet.

I heard it was a good place to eat, reasonable but when we were there, they ran out of chicken. When we arrived there were about 4 tables of people in addition to the 4 of us. There were only 3 wings and a thigh. I took the thigh. When we asked they said it would take 30 minutes to... More

Not sure about the past comments, but I've always enjoyed eating here. The pizza is good, salad bar has a wide variety, and and the pasta sauces are always tasty. It's family-friendly and a good all around place to fill up when you're hungry.

Food was lukewarm at best. Most buffet items were dried up and almost empty upon arrival. They were never replaced or filled. Food was old, dry and tasteless. Restaurant was filthy. We all left hungry and cooked dinner when we got home.

I have eaten here for years and recommend the buffet which has a great selection of Italian, Mexican and American fare with a good salad and desert bar. It is a simple place that is family friendly. The owner is always there which I like. Separate arcade aimed at kids under 10.

We ordered our pizza and when it finally got here it was very doughy. It's like they just warmed up raw dough. We called and they sent us a new one that was still doughy, but just hotter. One of the worst pizzas I've ever had. Not good for the price.
