Very disappointed with the food. We each had something different and we're all disappointed in our meals. The waitress was super friendly but for a very slow Friday night was not very attentive. When we were waiting for our check, she was talking with another staff member for at lease 10 min. Never came back after the first check of... More

My wife and I enjoyed dinner last night, my only complaint about the place is the kitchen is right in the middle and loud

I had classic lasagna and a wedge salad. The food was very good and the service was great. I went mid afternoon and it wasn't crowded. At noon and evenings the place is jumping.

Great menu and good service but the food for everyone was too salty! Our group of 8 wondered if they had used MSG! We all liked this restaurant in past years but this year wondered if something has changed with management! We probably will to return in 2017!

We had reservations elsewhere, but decided to come back for an extra night. Very good service. Great Italian food and the environment was electric the night before Muncie 70.3.

My husband & I have eaten here several times. The food is freshly prepared and very good. My husband loves the eggplant parmesan. The lasagna is also very good. The atmosphere is not fancy, but cozy. The attire is informal. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Although there is no separate room for parties, I have seen several birthday... More

Attended an event that catered from here for lunch. Not sure what all the rage is about. The spaghetti and the Alfredo sauces were plain. The meatballs were tough and had connective tissue in them. I don't enjoy chewy meatballs, gross. Gave it a two because surprisingly I didn't get sick after eating it. Given the choice, I would choose... More

Light meals available love the soup and salad lunch. The bread and the olive oil blend is a great way to start your meal

I am of Sicilian ancestry, and lived in Italy for years - so when I go to a "chain" Italian restaurant I'm a bit skeptical. No need to be here. The food was very good. Now keep in mind that this is not a mom&pop place where pasta and sauce is homemade - so understand that what you are getting... More
