“Great Italian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

Great place to go if you love Italian food. Big portions. Bread was really really good. I didn't use the dipping sauce- just had it with butter. Eggplant was very good. Love the choice of potatoes and green beasts for a side instead of the pasta. There is a large variety of things on the menu. We had a large party and there was such a variety of food at our table. There are pizzas that can be ordered too. I didn't have any pizza, but it looked and smelled good! Staff was friendly. Great atmosphere.

“It's Good but not Great for the price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Food is good, but hit and miss: some dishes are perfect, some are duds. Prices can be a bit steep on some things. I had the Pork Shank Osso Bucco as recommended by our server. It was not quite as shown on the menu, pork was overcooked, way too much risotto, and $20. I would rather have stuck with the $13 entree she talked me away from that I've had before and liked much better.
All in all, there is better Italian fare in this town, and you'll keep some of your money in your wallet too.

“Enjoyed our Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Overall we enjoyed our meal! The hostess was not happy when we asked to have a table in the main restaurant instead of the bar and when the three of us ordered only 1 salad, 1 appetizer, and 1 entrée our waiter appeared to be a little annoyed. But as the meal progressed, he could tell we were having a great time and he warmed up. The food was good and we liked having some selections that were unusual. A few downsides: the salad dressing was mainly oil and we had to add salt and pepper to have any flavor, 1/5 of our mussels appetizer didn't open (so should not have been served), and the menu seems to be a little confused on what constitutes spumoni ice cream. The bread is fantastic and we had a chicken/veggie/olive pasta dish that was delicious.

“Skip this place”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

My family decided to visit this place since it was so close to our hotel. Just from looking at it on the outside you would assume this is a fairly nice place. When we first walked in we noticed that the floor was sticky as we walked and everytime our waitress walked by we could hear her shoes sticking to the floor. The tablecloth was a faux leather disaster that was sticky and not so clean to the touch. We ordered our drinks and then looked through the menu. My husband and I scanned the menu and didn't see anything that really sounded very good and we almost decided to leave then and find something else. We would have left if our daughter wasn't so set on eating Italian food. The food wasn't great at all. The spaghetti sauce is thin and fairly flavorless and the sausage was pretty nasty. The alfredo was really good, but the portion was so small that it wasn't a good value for the money. Our waitress wasn't friendly and it took forever to get drink refills when the place was pretty dead. The bill was pretty expensive for what we got. I think we would have spent less at Olive Garden for much better food.
