This is a regular for us. It's always at least good, with lots of options for "gourmet" IT entrees. They're always full, but they're efficient, with a good wait staff. They kill the Olive Garden. (Try the sirloin steak marsala with garlic mashed taters, my favorite.

Great mainstream Italian Restaurant that serves up great Italian faire at a moderate price. Great menu selection from pizza to more traditional Italian dishes. Blackberry Sangria is fantastic and the service is always outstanding. Great for a date or with family/large groups - just remember to use call ahead seating.

This is a must stop when we are here on business. Great menu choices, great service and being able to order off menu with special requests are ALWAYS accepted by the servers and staff. Had a margarita pizza, marinara ~ not fresh tomatoes to avoid wet crust, and add mushrooms....PLUS, house red wine, YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!

Had dinner here tonight on our way home from a 17 Day Rd. trip. We had the Amore Monday special. It is a great deal and the choices are perfect. The food and the service was outstanding.

Came here with my family. Service was slow and it took a long time to be waited on, which I usually don't mind if it looks busy, but many tables were empty. The food always prevails though. Delicious.

Of the chain restaurants I believe they are a hair bit better than outback and bonefish. I believe they are pricing themselves out of their target market though, as we typically would rather pay 10.00 more for a more intimate and better dinner. But.... if your not really dressed and you have the kids, this is a very good compromise

My fish dish was cooked well if not a bit bland. My companion's pasta was better with garlic and spices making it more flavorful.
