Regret going here to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We were seated between a sunny window and a view of the kitchen through the large swinging doors. The wines available by the glass are standard bar and grill offerings. My Chardonnay was actually served in...a acrylic wine glass. Not the upscale atmosphere we were expecting. The waitress had no wine knowledge. Kept mispronouncing Chianti. The bread was the best part of the meal. Salads had bagged cheese topping. There was also a bowl of grated cheese on the table, so no freshly grated cheese at an "Italian" steakhouse. Far worse was the "crab" stuffed shrimp. There was no crab in that bready stuffing. Even the shrimp were old or over cooked, kind of gummy. They did remove the shrimp entree from our bill, but I had that taste in my mouth for a long time. We won't be back.More

They don't understand what "reservation" means. We got there on time but they said they "had just filed up". I guess the reservations are just recommendations. Then when they did seat us they seated us in the bar area. I'll update this and bunko it...up if the food is decent, but I'm guessing that will be a mess as well. I won't be back.More

I come here about every 2 months with friends for drinks and appetizers and usually on a Saturday night. The appetizers are always good. Service is usually good but there are times when they are busier than they are staffed for. Overall it’s a nice...atmosphere with consistently good appetizers. I’ve eaten a full meal here once on a weekday and it was good.More

This is a higher end steakhouse with prices to match, but the food is worth the price. Everything we had was delicious. For an appetizer we tried the sausage bread, which has sausage, peppers, cheese and onions baked in the middle. Served with fresh marinara...sauce, it was almost a meal in itself. Entrees come with salad and a side, with options to upgrade from the standard. We upgraded to a spinach salad with sun-dried tomatoes, bacon and some hard boiled egg with a warm bacon vinagrette dressing that was delicious. And then came Johnny's Steak Deburgo, cooked just the way you order it, tender and full of flavor, yum! Our waiter was attentive and helpful. All in all, a wonderful dining experienceMore

This was a disappointing experience. We had made a reservation on Open Table and noted that it was our 51st wedding anniversary. We got a call the day before asking if we were coming that night. I had definitely made the reservation for the next...night....she just looked at it wrong. When we arrived the next night, they set us at a table out in the middle of things instead of a cozy spot. The music was too loud, and there was hardly anybody there for a Sat. night. The service was awful. They rushed our drinks. They brought the main courses before I had completed the salad. I said I didn't want it yet but he still set it beside me to be in my way and get cold. The dirty dishes were not removed from the table. The food was OK....but my husband's steak was tough. Everything has an uptick....more for a certain kind of salad, more for toppings on the potatoes, etc. The final bill was $119 for 2 with poor service to boot. Nothing said about our anniversary either....though we toasted each other and I think he realized it. So that's fine.....if the food and service were decent. Would never return under any circumstances and would never recommend to anyone. There are many other restaurant choices in the vicinity.More

Moderately priced Italian steak house is a better option than other chains. Pastas were decent but not exceptional. Debargo steak was cooked correctly with an excellent sauce. Servers seem to young ladies with limited food and wine experience.
