“Great Italian Atmosphere of Era Gone By”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Great eccentric kitsch decor of Italy or Italians in America of the 50's and 60's., this chain rarely disappoints.This location was great for a family dinner and our waitress Marielle did a wonderful job of serving us and recommending dishes. She was very friendly and attentive. The spicy rigatoni with chicken was outstanding as was the baked ziti which we got for free from a Facebook offer. The pizza suprema should be tried. Calamari were the best ever. Baked salmon not that good. Salad only ok, not cold enough and not enough dressing and a bit expensive at 18.95 for four. cannoli awesome. must save room for those. coffee, the best every for a chain restaurnat. We will be back again soon.

“Fresh Italian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Wow, they take you through the kitchen and everyone is polite. Worth the wait for a table. Kinda hilarious to visit the Men's room. The food was plentiful for a family of four or more. They even had Italian beer on the menu. There was so much left over to take home and enjoy the leftovers for the next day. This ain't the same packaged food you'll get at olive garden.

“Something Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Great atmosphere with lots or rooms filled with everything Italian. For first timers, the staff gives you a wonderful tour and there's even a special booth in the kitchen for those lucky enough to reserve it. The food is wonderful and is mainly served family style so the portions are bountiful, but you can also get smaller portions. Great for casual family outings.

“You will not leave hungry”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Hearty Italian food served family style. We also like the retro Italo-American decor and informal ambience. Not for snobs.
