Pizza is our favorite, but we have tried pasta and like their meat sauce. Very cozy, decorated as if you are in Europe. Very friendly staff.

The pizza is awesome and the staff are efficient and friendly. My only complaint would be the closeness of the tables. There are times when even a skinny guy like myself has to squeeze down the aisle. Very close quarters.

The food quality is not good. Pasta was overcooked and cold. Pizza is just ok. Salad is iceberg lettuce with dry, cooked meat on top. Terrible.

We reunited with lost family members here and had an incredible time. The staff gave genuine attention to each micro group and several times took the time to engage in conversation. From salad to dessert, it was a perfect evening.

The meal was fine...the chicken parm had a nice sauce, but the perfectly round chicken pieces, coupled with the chewy texture, led me to believe they were frozen patties.

Family fun night out to enjoy friendly staff and delicious food. You can't go wrong with any items on their menu. Love the lasagna and pasta duo. Never come to town without eating here at least once, going on three times this go round.

Yes there is an elevator, not a typical one, but we rode in it and it’s fine. Takes you to a dining level for banquets or overflow on really busy days
