It's a must to eat here. The smell and the hanging garlic braids are a welcoming atmosphere. The food is wonderful and love having wine poured from a porcelain rooster!! Mussels are delicious as well as other items - so many can't list them all! Go try and you won't be disappointed!!

Very tasty food! I found their outside oven, to be of particular interest especially in cooler weather! Friendly staff, we had a great birthday party there!

Visited here with my wife for pre birthday dinner. The service and the food was top notch. The only disappointment was some wine. Good values and a large dining area are pluses for sure.

Best steak I have ever had! Wonderful atmosphere! Big beautiful outside bar and fire place. Beautifully decorated and well kept! Great for families or couples even to meet friends! At the beginning of your meal they give you roasted garlic mashed to dip your bread in! It is amazing!!!!

Went there on Sinatra Night and entertainment was very good. Food and service was awesome. Frequent here often because you are never disappointed. Very unque menu and prices are well worth it. Valet service is a extra perk. Will be back soon

Great funky place. Go early or plan to wait. Sit outside if possible. The food is great from the bar snakes to the heated olives or amazing dinners. Roasted garlic served in wonderful bread is a great way to start the meal.

First time visit, the food was very good. This is a well-known restaurant and everyone recommends it in the local area. They have lively entertainment, early bird specials and happy hour. The menu is a little pricy but the food is good. We tried plenty of the different dishes and they were all good hands down. I had the seafood... More

Great restaurant for couples or a group of friends to enjoy a special occasion. Nice intimate atmosphere and eclectic decor. Try the Blue Room Bar if you can get in.

We invite you to enjoy an authentic taste of the Tuscan countryside. Walk down a vine covered arbor, surrounded by a walled Olde World fireplace and enter a garden lush with lit trees and flowering greenery. The garlic offers one of the most beautiful settings for a delightful and memorable dining experience. We offer great food, live music, fine wine, Italian beer, and perfect martinis. Come experience the garlic for yourself.
