Six of us, as a family, arrived at the restaurant at about 7:45 in the evening and had to wait 30 minutes for a table. There were tables open, but for some reason they were not being used. I assume it was a staffing issue....More

There were 20+ of us. We called ahead and were given a specific menu with a few options, which was great. The service was great, the food was okay. The spaghetti was not hot when served, and the ice-cream was melting when it was served....More
