“I only go back because of the commercials, but the food is never as good as it looks.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Salad has too much iceberg hard lettuce and not any spinach or other good lettuces. Pasta sauces are always too salty and fatty. Your stomach will be hurting in about an hour.

Anytime we have eaten here, there has always been a wait of 10-20 minutes.Obviously a very popular place to eat.I have never been disappointed by the food, but in all honesty,the best part about it is the salad and breadsticks!!!!!!Oh they are delicious!!!!!! Quite partial also to the Marshmallow Martini .soooooooo yummy.

“Great place, I come here often”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

I have gotten take out from this place more often than anything, but I think that the food is always excellent and the service is great. They take great care to package up everything neatly and make sure to go over your order when you pick it up. Love the dine-in experience as well. they are great!

“EHHHHHHH”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Love the soup salad and breadsticks. Always a bunch leftover! BF got the tour last time that we went and the portion was tiny. 3 bites of Alfredo, 6 of lasagna, and tiny chicken parm. Service is always good and the cheese fonduta appetizer is awesome!!!
