Closed. Gone out of business. After this restaurant was featured on Restaurant Impossible tv show it was turned over to the family's son. He tried to make a go of it, but was not successful. Sorry, it is closed.

The makeover did not work and the restaurant is now closed. We are sorry to see it go. There were some family issues and it just didn't work

Nicely decorated and clean. Good service, staff was attentive but not intrusive. Portion size varies greatly, my pasta dish had enough for three meals, my husband got 3 stuffed shells with his order. Bread not that fresh. My husband enjoyed the bread pudding desert special.

I ate here for the first time before the remodel. It was pretty good. After the remodel, we still enjoyed the food. There wasn't much difference in the food quality, but the atmosphere is much better now. My girlfriend got the pappardelle and it was smoky, bacony & delicious. I got the eggplant parm....it was pretty good. The prices are... More

Food, ambience and service are really great. Shrimp and grits are divine, as is the calamari. All the waitstaff are excellent, but we have a special love for Laurie. You can't go wrong.

We were excited to go to this restaurant since Robert Irvine featured it on Restaurant Impossible. The food was not good and the service was poor. Don't waste your money.

I generally don't like to give negative reviews and I hope that this is read by the owners and maybe they can use this as constructive criticism, but our experience was absolutely horrible. My salad was so wilted that one of the salad leaves was actually rotten and was brown. I could kind of understand if it was hidden in... More
