The salad and breadsticks were great.... When we finally got them! The table next to us arrived well after we placed our drink order - they had already finished their first round of salad and bread before we even got our drinks! The hickey parm was SO over cooked that it was like chewing leather! The restrooms were very filthy!... More

Where do I begin? Starting with there was 7 of us and they put us at a table big enough for 5 people. Our waiter makes it to us about 10 minutes later. Asks for our drink order. 10 minutes later we get it. (By the way this wasn't even during dinner rush!!) He asks what appetizers as he puts... More

The restaurant is clean and has decent service staff which seem to be the only pros I can honestly name. Our house salad was so saturated in italian dressing that the lettuce was soggy and it had almost an unbearable sour flavor. I ordered the lasagna because I am not very adventurous when it comes to food and because lasagna... More

The restaurant was Saturday-night-busy, so we had a 20+ minute wait. The waiting area inside was full; the the outside offered benches (also full) and a nice railing. Thank goodness is was a beautiful night. Our group of four was placed in the farthest back table possible--a little pinned-in, but tolerable. Our waiter was a bit stressed. When one of... More

The service and food at this location is really starting to go down hill. The servers don't seam to be trained very good. They don't know much about the menu and food. To much of a " I don't want to be here attitude". They, or the kitchen get the order wrong a lot. Much of the food seams to... More

Waitress named Melline was great and food was delivered hot and efficiently. Tasted great and we enjoyed some after dinner dessert of pannacotta with strawberry drizzle. Good food, great service, enjoyable visit with family.

On of the worst dining experiences that I have had in a long time. I would have complained to the manager if I had seen one. Took my son for lunch. They brought the wrong appetizer, took it back to get the correct one. Server informed us that the correct appetizer wasn't ready but our food was waiting in the... More

I am sentimental about this location. It was the spot for my first date with my husband. The last couple of times we have gone, we have had issues with the service and had to speak to the manager. The manager apologized both times, and this last time, he remedied the situation immediately. The food was good as always.
