Not so good

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... read more

I have been here a few times & every experience has been disappointing, the wait staff stand around talking when customers have empty glasses & the food tastes as if it comes from a jar, the best thing they have here is their salad dressing but honestly that alone isn't worth a trip there. It appears they do not care... More

A little high for the portion size on dinner entrees but unbelievable food! Fresh pasta, meat, vegetables and sauces. The calzones are huge and well worth the price. Staff is very friendly. Interior could use some updates but it's still a warm and inviting atmosphere.

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.

After a 14 hour ride from New Jersey, we went off the interstate search of a great family meal. I have to say, the best meal of our entire trip exclamation exclamation. a wonderful waitress and freshly prepared mail.

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.
