Restaurant is always busy so reservations are a good idea. The food is excellent and very well presented. Service is generally very good. Would highly recommend.

I order pizza from this restaurant regularly. It is always great. I ordered the other day and received a pizza that I had an issue with. I very politely called and voiced my concerns. I was transferred to the manager who didn't apologize, or address my concern just said they'd do something different. No thanks for letting them know, no... More

The service here is almost always great and it's a good sized place. The lasagna is the best thing on the menu I believe. It's been voted the best lasagna in town for well over a decade straight. The burgers are very good too and the fries are certainly worthy. The pizza is good here, but sorry not nearly the... More

We have eaten here a couple of times. Good food, but nothing special. Service was fair, although somewhat slow the last time. Overall would call the restaurant average.

I have been frequenting this eatery for several years and each & every time, my visits have been perfect. I am greeted at the door in a friendly manner, if there is a wait, they are quite accurate on how long the wait will be and once seated at a table, the server is present and at your service within...

We arrived @ 5:45 pm on a Thursday night! Lovely scent of food and unbelievable decorations from the holidays still up - so lovely and festive! Seated promptly. Lovely server - thank you Jade! (They decorate at all seasons - Valentine's Day next) We enjoyed the meat spaghetti and asked to share the order between a couple. Costs an extra... More

Have been here a number of times and keep going back. The staff are very attentive and the service is fairly fast. Food is exceptional especially the pasta dishes and the pizzas - love the Monday/Tuesday special when these are discounted. Give them a try you will be happy you did.

Took my family here for the dinner and a movie special. $19.95. We ordered the spaghetti, lasagna and a pizza from the special menu. Worst pasta ever. Soggy noodles, watery sauce and a flavor that can only be described as chef boyardee..most disorganized servers..lineups in the waiting area and half the tables empty. And apparently 3 hostesses can't figure it... More
