“Better to Eat In than to Carry Out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Not quite as pricy as Olive Garden, but similar type food. Small, quaint atmosphere; very nice. Most of the servers are very nice and extremely attentive. If you want an Italian restaurant that will not skimp on the cheese, this is it. I, personally, wish they would cut back on it a bit. The free bread and oil before your meal is just the yummiest stuff on earth!!! The problem is that if you get a meal and carry it out, that yummy bread and oil is no longer "free."
