We had a gift certificate so we are here. The food is overpriced and overcooked. (Must remember this is a chain) My husband had the chicken Marsala. He says it was good and a bit overdone. (Must remember this is a chain) I had chicken parm. The spaghetti to chicken ratio was off. The sauce to everything ratio was off.... More

Great service, graet waiter, hardly knew he was there. Meal was cooked the just the way we liked it and there was no shortage of buns or salad.

They forgot my Andes' Mints, I love those little buggers. Other than that it was a standard Olive Garden experience.

Food was fantastic! Our server was average but management was throughout the restaurant to make sure things ran smooth. We will definitely go back again.

Our waitresses Amanda and Latoya did a fantastic job!!! Very pleasant and hospitable. The greeter/sitter was terrible and acted like we were imposing on her. My wife wanted a booth and the sitter gave her a look like what???? We have 5 cheese tortini or something like that and it was very tasty. Very good portion and got to take... More

Server was very attentive and friendly. Eggplant parm was cooked perfect. My kids enjoyed their mac and cheese, brocoli, Parmasean fries, but pizza had hardly any sauce or cheese at all. They took 1 bite and that was it. My wife enjoyed her meal. Salad was pretty good even though it was mostly iceberg. Dressing is really good though. Overall... More

It's a cute and comfortable reastaurant, staff is really nice. They have a special kiwi and melon lemonade and good wine. Salad is very good, served with warm breadsticks. The Fonduta is really delicious. Unfortunatly I didn't like too much the Chicken Scampi dish only because the pasta was overcooked but the chicken on top was perfect.

Don't even bother... These places are dying for a reason. Over-priced, mediocre quality food & poor service. This one is always freezing inside as well, so be sure to bring a jacket... even in the middle of summer. Thank God, for the rising popularity to eat at locally owned restaurants... Chains are yesterday's news.

I should have turned around when I first walked in and was struck with the smell of sour towels. It was overwhelming. The decor looked as if it had been thrown together haphazardly and it was very poorly lit. I ordered soup and salad and the plate I was given for my bread was soaking wet as if someone has... More

Pretty good service and offerings. More vegetarian selections are desirable, and so also sauces. Chef needs to understand vegetarian dietary requirements in terms of portions and ingredients.
