“Hidden Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

We've been eating here for eight years since it was first recommended by our realtor. Nothing exotic, just good Italian food. We enjoyed most pasta dishes and really enjoyed them. Great weekday lunch buffet for $6.50. Don't let the fact that they are in a strip mall fool you.

“Edible if you're starved”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

First time for dinner. The "Italian" dressing tasted like Japanese ginger dressing. The salad was warm. Bread was loaf white bread. Sauce with pasta dishes was less tasty than any jar sauce. Sorry but not good at all. Iced tea was pretty good.

“Stouffer's at someone else's house”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

Our first time visiting was recently. Service was awesome, but the buffet was not very great. There was a good selection with very little flavor. Appeared to be frozen and reheated. Hopefully their menu food isn't like this. The cheesecake was even bland. We did have great service though.

“Oh Baby - the name fits!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Today we tried the Sunday Champagne brunch buffet and were blown away! A tasteful ambiance, friendly staff, outstanding food quality, and very reasonable prices – it was our first time, but definitely not our last! Initially I was disappointed to hear that the champagne included in the buffet was sweet, but was glad I tried it, since it was pleasantly sweet from the natural sweetness of the grapes, not “cheap sweet” from adding sugar. My SO does not care much for champagne, so I got both glasses and they just happened to have his favorite beer on tap. We have tried quite a number of restaurants in different places over the last years, but this is by far the best in this price category. Awesome place, awesome deal!
