“Great atmosphere, great service, ok food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2009

Not sure what country Italian means, but italian shouldn't be part of the name. For the most part, the food is really good: I've tried several appetizer items, salads, steak... The only thing I really dislike there is the pasta. Maybe the cook was having a bad day, but my pasta and my husband's were overcooked (WAYYYYYYY overcooked) and the sauce didn't taste that great (I had alfredo and he had marinara). That's why they should take the italian out of the name. Other than that, everything is great: great atmosphere and friendly service.

As chain restaurants go, not bad at all. Good menu variety and consistently good service.

The Spicy Shrimp and Chicken (minus the chicken) is my favorite Italian dish. You're sure to find something you love on their menu.
