Mt first visit ever to an old spaghetti factory. Inside is very impressive. Wow. Swanky. Ordered the lasagna with a salad. For my drink I got the cotton candy limeade. Very good and comes with real cotton candy. Salad was basic and could be fresher....More

Atmosphere is really relaxing. It's usually busy with a short waiting list. But the food makes it worth while. Good service and the food is really good, and affordable.

I was able to watch trains out the back window. The staff is friendly and will bend over backwards for you sometimes and if your attitude is friendly, they'll remember you.
