I have eaten here in a large group on several occasions. Some items are much better than others. I would say the service is pretty good. It can get pretty busy on weekends because of it's proximity to the outlets. The bread and calamari are actually pretty good. The pasta dishes are good with the exception of the tortellini. The salads are good. I wasn't impressed with the desserts. We tried several of the mini's. The restaurant is a good spot for large groups.
