This is one of our favorite restaurants. We would frequent them more often but we don't live closeby. This time Keith waited on us and he was SUPER! He knew the menu.

They got us right in and we got to sit right in front of the TV for a NLCS game that we would've missed otherwise. The waitstaff was great and our server was knowledgeable about the menu.... More

we came by on a saturday night...the parking lot was packed, but don't let that deter you. the place is pretty big and the wait wasn't too bad. plus, you can always get a drink at the bar! the waitstaff is great (the hosts a bunch of kids) and very attentive. the food was good. calamari was excellent. enjoyed ourselves!

Went there for dinner during recent trip to Franklin. The food was great and server was very friendly. He customized the dish for one of the friend who was vegetarian. Overall had a good time and great food.

We had family in town so we headed out to eat on a Friday night. It wasn't too crowded and we were seated immediately. The ambiance was seriously lacking as they were in the middle of renovating. Service was typical 4/5. I had the pasta wheezy and it was good. The salad was just a typical salad, nothing special. The... More

The Polla Rosa Maria and the Chicken Bryan are to die for! The restaurant is under renovation (expansion), so it's a bit under construction right now.

Yes, its a chain, but each time we eat here, the food is made to order....and very tasty I might add. A great variety of dishes...my fav is the Spideno....a combination of shrimp and scallops. Excellent meal.

Stopped in for lunch on a Saturday. Got seated right away. Waitress was great at explaining things since we had never been there before. Great food and great service. We will go again if given the chance.
