Came here for a business meal. Service was great. We ordered two glasses of wine, the waiter suggested a bottle, which was at 1/2 price- good choice for three people. I ordered the sea bass. This is not the normal sea bass, thick and smooth. I would not suggest it to anyone for $20. My friends ordered chicken and salmon.... More

Dinner was great! Chose to eat at the bar with the family since there was a 30 minute wait time for dining tables. Was able to carry a conversation with some friends we ran into at the bar. Football game was on the tv, but it wasn't loud.

Usually fave for good pasta, wine and salad. Prices re good, usually packed at lunch in weekends. During the week can go to the bar and eat quickly and without waiting line. Do not expect any special treatment as no tomato in the pasta or whatever special requirement you need, they are to busy. But if you are willing to... More

for the most part was great - we had one really bad nite though, with a waiter who seemed very put out to be dealing with a group of 10 business people who needed separate checks. the management definitely made up for that though!

Never disappoints. Great food and atmosphere. Wait staff is great. They have torn down the hotel next door so parking was a nightmare.

It is very good Italian food and very fattening! I do try to stay away even though I like the food but am not fond of the dressings or soups, which are a specialty. This is just my choice. Others like them very much.

There on a very busy Sunday evening. but we still only waited about 20 min. Then our waiter was very at tentative, even though he had several large tables to take care of. He really earned his tip. Food was as good as we always expect. Never disappointed.
