I'm generally not a fan of chain restaurants, but I always enjoy eating here. Good bread and dipping oil. Nice menu. Prices are slightly higher than what I would expect, but the portions are large and I generally take home leftovers. The food quality is above average (I really like their eggplant parm and spicy pomodoro sauces).
They are running a great family special on Monday nights in September (maybe October too?). Family sized entrees (menu says they serve 2-3, I think they easily serve four), including salads for everyone, for the price of an individual entree ($11-17). That's a really good deal! If you drink water and skip dessert, a family of 4 can eat well for $20!
