We have been to this restaurant several times. Their bread sticks are great, but their marinara sauce tastes like it comes out of a can. Since this is a chain restaurant it probably does. Their pizza is cheap but average. Their pasta, as other reviewers have said, is mushy and overcooked, no where near al dente. Our last time there I had their stuffed cannelloni. It was terrible, tasteless, and mushy.
The service though is good and fast.
Obviously those reviewers who give this restaurant a 5 rating have not eaten at a good Italian restaurant.
