“Good quality, expensive and not comfortable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

The food is very good, the prices are high considering the type of restaurant (Olive Garden equivalent) However on a party of 5 the tables they have are really for 4 people only and there is no way they can give you a table for 6 or 8.

“Just great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

This is a great place to eat. Food smells and tastes great and the bread is delicious. The staff is really nice and they do care about you being comfortable with everything. They have a happy hour (I think that every day) and some drinks are 1.99! If you are in the area and you want to try some good Italian food, this is the place.

“Heard great things and finally had a chance to try it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

The host promptly greeted us when we arrived. I loved that this restaurant was within walking distance of my hotel. For appetizers, we shared the mozzarella and firecracker rolls. They were both excellent!! For my entree, I ordered a spicy pasta dish with chicken, shrimp, artichokes, and sundried tomatoes. It was GREAT!!!! Wish I could've saved room for dessert. I really wanted to try the Chocolate Lava Cake.

“They promised garlic, I got none.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

I ordered the build your own pizza but saw none offered for pizza. I asked the waiter if they could add a small amount of garlic, he said " of course". It came with NO garlic, he went back into the kitchen and brought out what looked like tiny freeze dried or toasted crispy garlic. It tasted terrible. The pizza was so moist that I could not pick up a piece to eat it. I had to eat it with a knife and fork. I will not eat there again.

“Very good food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

We went for lunch and shared a Caesar salad and Chicken Parmesan. It was not crowded at all - our server did a great job. Food was prompt - drinks were refilled quickly. Salas and Entree were really very good. Pasta was cooked correctly. Chicken was tender. Salad had the correct amount of dressing. Everything was properly seasoned.
