Music is wonderful and the food is even better...the familiarity of the tie wearing waiter is gone but the service (which was found across the USA) is still polite even tho' they now all look like any other restaurant. I miss the uniqueness.

Our annual tradition while on our Christmas shopping trip. Always have early dinner here. Excellent service. Pasta weesie is amazing, and their hand-cut mozzarella sticks are a must. The berry sangria is definitely a must-have as well!!

I had spaghetti with meat sauce. I think there should have been a bit more meat and less juice in the meat sauce.

Good food, good service. Clean restrooms. Atmosphere is hard to describe....crowded, unorganized, bunch of tables in a room? Overall, good experience.

Our server was very nice and knowledgeable, however she was a bit slow. The food wasn't the greatest but I think it's my own personal palette because everyone else seemed to enjoy their food, when if finally made it out.

Great food and very friendly staff. This restuarant is very clean and in a nice safe area. It's very easy to access from the expressway and there is a lot of shopping and food choices.

Visited for the first time last week. The food was decent, but really just average as far as Italian goes. Portions were on the small side and the appetizers were a little expensive for what was on the menu

We enjoyed dinner here. Like always, the food was delicious and we had good service! We had a 10 minute wait for three people on a Saturday night. We enjoyed the delicious bread and salads in addition to spaghetti and meatballs.The food was great and portions were large and filling! We would definitely return!!

I had dinner with a group of 6 at this chain on the north side of Columbus. Unfortunately, things did not go well from the start. We were seated promptly, but did not see a server for a while. The person at the check-in desk actually volunteered to bring out water and take cocktail orders while waiting for our server.... More
