The food here was fresh but did not taste good, and the waitresses were standing around talking to each other and paying attention to the customers. The owner came out of the kitchen drunk at some point, and started cussing the waitresses out. DID NOT enjoy our experience here at all.

We have ate here before and the food was pretty good. Decided to go back several months later and should have went to one of our favorites, Paisanos or Merrell's. This place was odd. There were lots of waitress just standing around chatting about smoking and drinking. Our food was fresh but not so good. The portions were a nice... More

The hotel staff recommended this local, family owned restaurant. We were greeted at the door and seated immediately by Gideon, who was an outstanding server! The restaurant is a combination of Greek and Italian. We had Greek platters which were perfectly spiced and delicious!! The accompanying Greek salad was perfect! We dined well and left totally satisfied!! We will be... More

Pizza is great but sometime it is a hit or miss I guess it depends on who is cooking that day stuffed shells are always great and the hot oven subs are very good

The food was great, would definately recommend trying this one out. Got the chicken calzone and it was packed and delicious. Don't come in if you were in a rush, service was slow.

I stopped in at the Olive Tree today with my children. The waitress was rude. When I spoke to her about this she got more rude. I also pointed out that her finger nails were dirty and the polish on them was chipped. I consider both of these to be very unsanitary. She went into the back of the restaurant... More

The food is wonderful and well worth the price which comparable to other Italian Restaurants. My favorite is the Chicken Parmesan but everything we have ever gotten there has been delicious.
