We hadn't been in years and decided to give it a go. Service was great and food was good. Great kids menu and even greater price. I wouldn't order chicken Marsala again, just didn't like it much, but I would go back and try something else. Seems like a busy place!

I like the mizithra and brown butter. It tastes amazing and I always get the same thing. The Pesto dressing is awesome as well as the spimoni.

Had four of the grandkids, daughter, hubby ,and 92,yr old Mamo and we all stopped in for lunch. Last time we were here was for mamos 90th birthday party. Our lunch was delicious. I always love the mizithra cheese. No one makes it better, and believe me I have tried. For just dropping in the staff had us seated quickly,... More

Food was okay and the place was clean. The kids liked it and fun. I love the bread. The meat lover was good. Service was slow but we did not care.

This is only the 2nd osf ive been to and its great! Tried a new beer: firestone 850 and it went great with my dinner. Our waitress was so on it too. Didnt have to ask for anything. She just knew what was needed. 💗that. The only downer is that its so good you want to just keep eating. ☺️

We were very disappointed that there is no longer whole wheat pasta option. Food did not seem as good as it used to be. Bread different.

I think the only difference between this place and the Olive Garden is the decor. I hadn't been in years, and now I know why. Oversalted and limp pasta, salad that looked as if was out way too long, and service that was intrusive while not addressing any of the problems we had with our meal. Okay for a big... More

This has always been a favorite off mine and my family as Errol. My grandson loved it. He lives to sit in the train to eat. Great atmosphere, service and good. The mazithera and browned butter is a must try.I give five stars
