“Two thumbs down for UP”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Our party of 5--a graduate, grandparents, and us parents, dined here on graduation weekend. Food was some of the worst we've ever had in a restaurant. Even the basics were terrible: meatball dry, tough, flavorless and no sauce. Pasta with sauce was also dry with big chunky tomato (looked canned) strung out over the pasta as the "sauce." Ravioli with pear and pepper was underdone to the point of being crunchy and was soaking in oil on the plate. So bad, as to be inedible. Also ordered the salad with walnuts and fruit and it was bathed in oil, again to the point of being inedible. Unfortunately, the member of our party tried to eat about half the salad. He regretted it a couple hours later when he became terribly ill from it--luckily when it left his system he felt better immediately. Swordfish grilled was dry, flavorless, and tough. Tilapia was drowning in some sort of liquid and oil. All in all, a terrible experience for all of us. Recomendation: AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COSTS!
