“Great food...slow service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

We arrived on time for our reservation and were seated quickly. ..but that was the only quick thing. The food was extremely slow in coming. ..we were not given plates for our bread or appetizers. ..and our entrees arrived well before our dinner plates. The server was friendly enough. .but certainly not attentive.

The food was by far the redeeming value...excellent. ..we had chicken parm. ..eggplant parm....sausage and peppers...and spaghetti with meat balls...all delicious and plentiful.

“Great First Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

We met friends on a Saturday evening. We were seated right on time even though there was a crowd including a couple of large groups. The staff was helpful since it was our first time there.

The house wine was terrific and reasonably priced. We shared a great salad and had two small entrees and a small pasta which were large enough to feed the 4 of us, plus we had enough to take home.

All of this tasty food and drink was only about $30 per person, not including tip. We would definitely return an try more of their selections.

“Drinks & Dessert”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

Stopped for drinks recently and ended up sharing a huge "bowl" of Tiramisu that was well made and delicious. Took home a "Marguerita Pizza" and it was excellent!
