There are some really conflicting reviews on this place. On yelp it has 4 stars and on Trip Advisor it only has 2 ½ stars. I give it 5 stars!
We had a large group (8) people going out to dinner. (My family came into town) we all wanted Italian, So instead of going the usual route: Olive garden or the spaghetti factory. We decided to try something new. We wanted something affordable and family friendly.
After reading the reviews on Yelp, we decided to go for it. We made a reservation for a Thursday night for 6:30pm.
We came around 6:35. The parking lot was full, but we managed to find a parking space.
There were a lot of people waiting for a table, but since we had a reservation.. They whisked us away to a huge leather booth.
The service was amazing. The waitress came to check on us so many times that I lost track. The food was unbelievably good!
The portions are really big, so some of us decided to split the entrees. We still each got a soup/salad/ice cream for no additional cost
I had the minestrone soup, which was 10 times better then olive gardens!! There garlic/cheese bread was delicious.. The server kept bringing us more and more.
And I had the Alfredo Pollo which I split with my sister. It was so good!! (grilled chicken, onions, bell peppers, mushrooms and tomatoes in a creamy alfredo sauce)
I am a pasta lover… So for those days when I want pasta.. We will defiantly come back here. Or on a cold/rainy Portland day we will come here for a bowl of there yummy minestrone soup and garlic/cheese bread.
