“Very good food, large portions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2011

This was a great experience. Food was pretty good...not the best Italian I have ever had but good. The view of the lake from the outdoor seating area was absolutely beautiful. Would definitely go back.

“Dirty”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2011

The food was all out of cans or bags. There were shells on our calamari, a food which does not have shells. We asked for more plates and were told to use our bread plates which we had to use for olive oil and balsamic dipping sauce. Our food came out incorrectly, and with the waitresses thumb shoved in it. My husbands ravioli had the wrong sauce and random pieces of pasta. My penne had a few random pieces of veggie. I can't imaging how unclean this kitchen is. We are locals and would never go back or recommend this place to anyone.

“Best Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2011

We ate here both Friday and Saturday night and had excellant meals both days, the service staff was great also, they were very attentative to our needs. We had their daily specials both days and everyone liked their dishes. This building use to be a Burger King and you would not know that from the looks of it, they have done a great job with the decor. Would highly recommend this place to anyone, and it is only five minutes from the
Sara-Placid and Best Western motels...you could walk there if you enjoy a nice long walk, would probaly be about two miles each way.

“Not so hot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2010

Great service. Soggy bruschetta w/ cardboard tomatoes, not much balsamic. Lobster ravioli drowning in alfredo, not much lobster. House salad run of the mill w/ canned olives and pasable greens. Pricy for mediocre chow.
