“Suprisingly Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

I hadn't been to a MGrill in quite some time, and didn't have high expectations, but found that everything was far better than i expected. Good Service, Good Pasta [al dente, with a great garlic sauce and chicken. -i'd have put a touch more sun dried tomatoe in if it was me, but i really enjoyed the meal] , We were in luck !--Thursday 1/2 price wine bottles [the Malbec ALAMOS was very nice], Great olive oil [ a bottle on the table for your bread],
my daughter had a salad that was great. Atmosphere was very nice, clean restrooms.
I guess I had been expecting Maggianos style (pasty over cooked) pasta and was thinking of .99 boxes of mac-n-cheese without realizing it........
I have to say i'll readily go back to this restaurant, even if it is a chain. They did a great job for what they are.

“Great food friendly servers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

We enjoyed the food. It's a great family restaurant. Servers are really fun and engaging. We did miss the singers we have heard there before. But the atmosphere is still very nice and we all felt pampered. We love the Italian lessons that you can hear in the restrooms.

Everything here was great. Service was excellent. Portions were nice size. Bread could have been a little fresher.

“Chain Italian”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

The food isn't bad for a chain restaurant. Nobody will mistake it for "authentic" Italian food, but it isn't bad.
