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.

We ate at the Olive Garden in Ronoake VA for lunch. It was busy but we did not wait long to be seated. The seating arrangements were comfortable for our party of 8. Our server was wonderful and very attentive. Our food was hot. The only complaint I have is that the breadsticks were hard as a rok the first... More
