This placed used to be great before to come with kids. Lately, the service hasn't been so good. They take a lot of time to sit you even when there is a lot of empty tables. When the mSometimes they forget about you. Also, they have been burning the chicken parmigiana.

Our experience was average, we did not have to wait long for a table, the restaurant was not full. Our waitress was cordial but we had to ask her 3 time for our forks and knives.WE only had some appetizers, the were all good specially the risotto with pesto. The house wind was good.

Flavorless food. Paper with some Ketchup would've been better. Service was good. Second time here, not coming back again.

Salads are good as is desert but poor excuse for Italian food. Chains are chains but this one I don't get at all.

I began with a cream of mushrooms, then for entrees my husband had the Lasagna Bolognese, my daughter the skirt steak with mashed potatoes and I had Sugo Bianco. Very good... More
