“Soup, salad, and breadsticks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

This was a great meal after a long trip. The soup, salad, and breadsticks is a good option if you want something light.

“Clean and functional”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

This is a chain - so there is not a great deal to report. Seen one... seen them all. However, our server was helpful and well trained. The food was as expected. Better than other italian places in town, so we will revisit.

“New management makes it a new atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

We have eaten for so many years and and all of a sudden this kind man Nick walks up and talks to my family and makes it feel like a "home like" restaurant. The food has seemed better, service better and he has been back to our table every time since! No like a franchise anymore! So enjoyable !

“Breadsticks and salad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

The portions always seem small to us. Especially when the pasta is scimpy. Come on, noodles are CHEAP! Heap em on!

“Fake Italian restaurant”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

I asked for some Olive Oil to dip my breadsticks, they didn't have any.
All their oil is a mixture of olive oil and canola oil. Their portions were small making me less than satisfied, the food frequently has too much sauce, I hated it and will never never never go back.
