We came earlier and asked if we need to have reservations for the night but they said no need because its not full. Then we arrived an hour later only to find out that there are... More

Pork chop special was very nice. Very large portions. The bolognese wasn't typical but the flavor was great. Again huge portion enough for two. Service is very nice and everything was great.
