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

Simple but tasteful décor, with nice color scheme . Friendly atmosphere and very tasty food. We had daily special : Pasta with white sauce and salmon and it was very well prepared , fresh and very tasty. Good selection of wines, too. Would recommend it for families , friends , but couples as well.

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.

Our exercise class met here about 15 people. Good pizza and sandwiches and nice salads too. Service was great and accumulated our large group.

Great service and atmosphere. The menu seemed very limited and strange. The food is tasty but could be so much better. Seems as if the recipes for success could be expanded to provide more italian sausage/meat to many of the dishes. Lots of potential, but currently is just average ...
