I went out to OG with my husband using a gift card from my mother. It was our anniversary. He always gets Chicken Marsala and I always get the Mixed Grill. Alas, the Mixed Grill was taken off the menu so it can be "revamped." Why? What was wrong with it? I like the grilled chicken and steak with vegetables.... More

Nice family restaurant with nice atmosphere, good service and delicious Italian pasta dishes with all you can eat salad and yummy desserts. My friends and I enjoyed every bite!

We went here on my birthday, and, wow, that was a huge mistake. When asked if they did anything in particular for birthdays, we were promptly and grumpily informed that "they didn't do that." Then the waiter basically forgot about us most of the time; it took an eternity just to get salad and breadsticks, and we were only allowed... More

We'd really like a chance to show you that we... More

I usually don't go to chain restaurants, but we just in a mood so we tried it out. The arancini and the bacon garlic tortellini was amazing - and only $4 each M-F from4-6pm!

We ate so much we thought we'd pop. We have eaten here several times. Everything has always been good. This was the best visit yet. The wait staff were exceptional. The food was delicious. We will return soon. Thanks for a delightful lunch.

While I am sure that others enjoyed their meals today, ours wasn't so great. To start the waitress was horrible. I do not remember her name. I just know that if I ever return to this location I will ask to set in Jim's area. He was amazing with all of his tables. He even asked if we needed anything... More

Food always good, but it could be hotter temperature when it's served. Sometimes staff is slow to bring food and drinks. Finished meal before I got my extra helping of salad. Tea never good. Not sure what's wrong, but taste isn't good. Restaurant could be cleaner: window treatments, lamps, seats, tables, etc. Pet peeve is for waiter/waitress to deliver bill... More

The food was exceptional as normal but the service was beyond many others in the restaurant Field. Our server was very nice and and had the allergy specialist come to speak to my wife and help decide what to do.
