The service is great. Many dishes to choose from. Loved the calamari. All of the pasta dishes I have eaten there are very good and prepared well.

Very good service, but food was marginal at best. Extremely overpriced. After our first visit we just decided we would stick with a couple of other places.

I know it's a chain, but obviously a well run one with tight quality control. I had the "chicken under brick" and it was fabulous, equal to any meal I've had with snooty chef's at twice the price. The grilled asparagus was perfect and the...More
