We visited twice; once on a Friday night and then the following Tuesday.
The first visit, three of us had a 40 minute wait to get in. We ordered an antipasto salad and a pizza with two toppings, sausage and half mushrooms (no discount for 1/2 toppings).
The salad arrived. It was four pieces of bread, a small pile of roasted red peppers, four small pieces of salami, and four olives. That is nothing like any antipasto salad I have ever ordered.
After approximately 45 minutes the waitress told us our food should be out any minute. A few minutes later, a manger came out and told us our pizza had been dropped and we would be getting a new one very soon. It took about 10 or 15 minutes, but the new pizza came and I was satisfied with it. To the restaurant's credit, they took the price of the pizza off the bill.
The second visit didn't go as well. We went with a large group. It started out fine, waters, sodas, and beers were given to everyone as they were ordered. The waitress took everyone's order, in order around the table. Then came the waiting game. The waitress promised refill on waters and they didn't come and she told people she would bring them another drink and gave it to someone else.
As the food came out, it wasn't in any order and none of the servers knew who was to receive which order. So, they came into the room shouting out orders and people had to announce which one belonged to them. The orders came out several minutes apart. My food was cold by the time my wife's arrived.
I ordered a sausage calzone. It was flat and the cheese mixture didn't seem right. They served it sliced in strips. It was not as good as the pizza on the previous visit. My wife ordered pizza again and it was good.
This place might make it. But, they have a lot of kinks to work out with their crew and the pricing is a bit high for the area. It will be a long time before we try it again.
