Family dinner here. When you choose the entrée you get a salad to start, with ice cream and coffee at the end. Really good value. Pasta was nice, not the best we have ever had but still good. Service was pleasant and attentive. A busy place so you may need to wait in line

Their menu is bigger then the Portland (original) location. My food unfortunately was cold in the middle but fine. The staff was welcoming to families.

We go here at least one time during our holiday. It's a great place for families or people who want a huge meal. Each person gets a tea/coffee, loaf of bread, and ice cream with their meal. Their pasta never lets us down and neither does the service. We will always come back here.

Very good restaurant especially if you are on a tight budget. Good selection of pasta dishes at very reasonable prices. Food was good and the portion sizes were more than adequate. The restaurant is in a good location and has a very nice atmosphere. The staff was friendly and attentive.

We enjoyed a meal here while in town for a conference. The food was good but nothing to get overly excited about. The service was attentive without being overbearing. My wife had lasagna and I had grilled chicken with pasta. It came with a cup of soup or a small tossed salad and a dessert. The atmosphere was pleasant and... More

Succulent pasta that will drop you to your knees. Ice cream is fantastic. Warm & inviting atmosphere, very popular for the locals. Pretty cool service, wish all servers had to wear fake mustaches and chefs hats though... maybe next time :)
