Enjoyable Sunday Brunch. Food was good and outside seating was nice. Good service. Our two year old grandson enjoyed the pizza, breadsticks, and pasta. The Vodka Chicken and Pasta was very good.

This is a very pleasant place to have dinner or an event. I have been here several times, the last time was for a bridal shower. The staff were wonderful handling this event. They had a limited menu for it which included some of their signature dishes. Of course the wonderful Vodka Chicken was one of them. I would recommend... More

Went here for dinner for my sons birthday. We had chicken Parmesan and it was served over broccoli as requested. The chicken was very good but the broccoli had no flavor at all. My son had the cheese ravioli and he said it was very good. My wife and son both had the minestrone soup and said it was just... More

Great ambiance. I had the veal marsala which was delicious! Our waitress was wonderful and handled our large group with ease. Would go back again to try other items on their large menu.

I have been there a total of 1 time. That's how it will remain. I'm not sure if it was a manager or the owner, but it was an older woman that was incredibly rude and had an attitude..even going so far as to correcting one member of our party when they asked for more breadsticks, stating "please" after the...

Their Wednesday Night Buffet begins @ 4:00 PM is well worth a trip. At least six different entries plus 4 kinds of pizza and dessert -- all for $12.

Enjoy a relaxing Italian dinner in a very nice atmosphere. Restaurant has a very good reputation for their various pastas. The Vodka Chicken pasta dish is the best I have ever had and it seems the same sentiment that others I know have expressed. Parking is easy and ample.

Great menu from salads to full dinners. Oh! don't for get the bread! It's to die for. When it's time for desserts, don't miss out on their tray of goodies. Always ask for the drink of the day too. Every waiter I've ever had, goes over and beyond to please you. Been here many times through out the years. From... More
