“Just bad...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

The overlooked pasta was complimented with a sauce that had a subtle tin flavor, served following a salad that had brown slimy tipped lettuce. This place just isn't trying at all. Beware!

“Pedestrian, uninspired, run of the mill food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Their dishes seem stuck in the 70s or 80s. Their tomato sauce base isn't very good and it appears in a lot of their dishes.

“Ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013 via mobile

This place was just ok. I thought it might have been a bit better because a local person that I encounter on the street raved about it. Little disappointed

We enjoyed souvlaki overlooking the streetscape outside. Great place to dine. Service was prompt and courteous.

“Original location a little industrial”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Nicolee waited on us and was very professional and helpful in choosing food. Overall a very good meal with good portions. Bread was excellent and blueberry cheesecake was made with real ricotta cheese, just like NYC! This location is a little tired and near a major highway and industrial area, but they have plenty of parking.
