The food was wonderful as was the atmosphere. The kids loved the Italian soda with cream. And the fact that they give one free refill says they understand kids. The bread comes in a little bag and the olive oil has roasted garlic in it. I could have made that my meal. One star off because there was... read more

Poor welcome totally disorganized not a good start. Food appeared very fast which was a shock and I feel it was already pre-prepared and far from fresh. After a long drive I look forward to a quiet relaxing restaurant with good edible food. This place is noisy, bordering on rowdy, with fast food with okay service. No I shall never... More

I have nothing bad to say. The staff hosted 16 adults and 14 children with nothing but top notch service. Service, food quality, and timeliness was all exceptional. I would definitely go back to this place when in town.

This was a very loud and busy place! Food was salty and service was ok! Fresh bread is really good, but drinks are disappointed

I don't care for their signature drinks. A better selection would be nice. Wines are great. Our waiter was pretty slow but I think he was new plus we got a free drink for being patient! When we walked in it was a 15 min wait so we sat up at the bar had a glass of wine and 5... More

Wanted to try something new so tried this restaurant. This place gets very busy but I got in right away. The servers are very friendly, and the food was great. This place reminds me somewhat of an Olive Garden. I went with my family and they all agreed the food was very good. I would recommend the Italian Pot Roast.... More

We have eaten here before when we stayed at the adjoining hotel. Olive Garden type food but menu isn't exactly the same. My kids love the pizza dippers in the kids menu... Main reason why we came. Price is a little on the higher side. Staff was very friendly and our server checked in frequently to ask about drinks. My... More

This restaurant has fabulous food and a varied menu. I had a Skilletini pasta dish that was very flavorable. This is a chain restaurant but exceeded my expectations. On Friday and Saturday they do not take advance reservations under 20 people. This is a big restaurant - but the wait time can be awhile to get a table.

The menu is full of variety with all kinds of food but the Pasta dishes are the best. Kids menu O.K., somewhat noisy especially near the kitchen but fun to watch the staff as the work.

On our last night in SF we had dinner with my brother and his family... Very busy night because of graduation, but the server was very pleasant. Good food and extra to take home. Very resemble in price.
