Hooked up with an old friend for dinner, and have to say that everything was good. The server did an outstanding job considering they were short handed on a Saturday night. The meals came out hot and were very good. No complaints.

I have been here many times and most times have not been good. However, I'm pleased to report that this time everything was perfect. I entered the Resturant with my service dog and right away the hostess was pleasant, when I said just need a table for one she joked and said ," don't you mean table for two? "... More

Our two servers were friendly, attentive to our wants, especially paid special attention to our first-grader. The bread and salad brought promptly was appreciated as we were eating late and very hungry. Meals ordered were shrimp scampi, chicken scampi, Northern Tour of... More

Have been here quite a few times before , realizing this is not anywhere near fine dining two things did bother me this time , first the wine rack built into a wall had a lot of dust on the bottom, probably accumulated for months if not a full year, secondly all the tables now have those tablet ( Zoosk)...

Went there for my parents 63rd wedding anniversary. BIG mistake! First off, don't order the sangria, I think it's more water than it is wine. The taste was very bland and watery. Although the server was gracious and did replace is, but we still got charged for the wine. Go figure. Then I ordered The Tour of Italy. It looked... More

Good affordable food with quick and friendly service. I personally find that the quality of the food has gone down since the last time I visited but still enjoyable. Would recommend!

I am not normally a huge fan but I am not a big fan of Italian food. When I go, I normally get something like a Chicken Parmesan. I used to love Olive Garden's kabob/skewers but they did away with those a while back. As of tonight, though, my new favorite is the kitchen sink pot pie. It's got ziti,... More
