This is another place that has been around for years. It always seemed to be average but in the last 5 years, the place has improved substantially. They remodeled the place. They classed it up a bit. It's great now. The pizza is delicious but the other items are excellent too. Great pasta selection. Great wine selection. Great beer selection.
My only problem is that sometimes the waitresses ask, "Do you need change?" Hey! Never ask that! You should say, "I'll bring you your change." That way, I, the customer, have the option to say, "No, keep the change." That always gets me mad. The waitresses have done this to me twice recently.
Also, the lunch buffet recently changed as well. It used to be a long counter full of awesome food. Now the food is displayed on "islands" which are cramped together so customers can only go one at a time. The previous setup was much better.
Anyway, the bottom line is that the food is great. I love the food here. It's also a pretty good hot spot for drinks but the bathroom is located by the waitress station so they see you when you've got to go. If you want to pick up a pizza I recommend that you go in and order a pizza to go. Then you can knock down a couple of beers while waiting and watch sports like the White Sox on television. Then you go and pick up your food from a seperate room that is also a liquor store well stocked with wine and beer. Awesome.
