“So far, a mixed bag.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

First visit I had lasagna, which was quite good, and I would highly recommend it. My husband had the eggplant parmigiana, with which he was very happy. The cheese bread was tasty, as well. Second visit I ordered the chicken marsala, which was a stretch for this restaurant. The sauce appeared to be from a jar. It was OK, but I could have done better myself. Both visits were with friends, and it is a lovely atmosphere for that, very comfortable. Service was good both times. I'd say go and order the lasagna, spaghetti and meatballs (which our friends had), eggplant parmigiana, and the like, and you'll be very pleased.
