Pizza & Salad = classic!

Lunch special was very good. Pizza special was limited to 2 choices. Salad was crisp & fresh. Service is better if more than one is dining- but that tends to be the case every where .

The pizza is very good; especially the ones that use fresh mozzarella. The Aegean is my favorite. Entrees are good but can be a little pricey. Wine selection is reasonable but a little overpriced -- like everywhere in the region. The atmosphere is very nice. And if you don't feel like a restaurant for a meal, the carryout pizza is... More

A friend of mine ate there. We had the appraiser fire something shrimp. The serving was extremely small it had a sauce on it but the tails had not been removed. This dish isn't finger food. We both had a steak, both were undercooked. The side was asparagus, they were the most pathetic examples of asparagus, I had ever seen.... More

The food choices are unique and different from other restaurants. The food is good and seems to be popular. I enjoy the meals that I eat there. I do feel that the prices are a little high for what I receive.

Frequent this restaurant a couple time a month. The dinner menu is not elaborate, but has something for everyone. I especially like the pork shank osso boco. This is extremely tender, falling off the bone, and virtually free of fat. In addition to the regular dinner menu items they have three different specials each night. They also have a nice... More

One of the very best meals we have eaten here at home in Richland. BUT since the new manager took over has gone down hill. Water down the salad dressing sadly and way less meat on the sandwich along with any sauce:( We still go just not as often and don't nearly enjoy as we did. Found out the new... More

We had a good experience here, thought the food was very good. The place was empty, not sure why. I would definitely recommend the place.

A friend and I went here for lunch one day. I tried the rockfish chowder, which was very good and she got a margherita pizza, which I tried, and it was also pretty good. Not very big for the price charged, though. The service was very good. Kind of a small place and kind of crowded during the main lunch... More

The food is very good. The service is very good. Special event? They will work with you. The Tri Cities Wine Society held an event here and they out did themselves to accommodate our needs. They were easy to work with and even made changes at the last minute. Plenty to eat.
