This place is hit or miss. I have had dinner and lunch here many times and sometimes the wait staff has been slow and the food not so great. Other times the wait staff is great and the food was OK. It can be loud for dinner Fri and Sat. It looks like it would be nice quiet Italian restaurant,... More

Went for a business dinner with about 10 of us. Great meals and service. Try the butternut squash or pot roast. Will return with my family.

Great location, really nice looking place. I imagine this is one of those restaurants that was great in its day and now.... Cucumber martinis were gasoline? Or perhaps mop water and bleach? Vile, burned going down. The first waitress I did feel bad for, first night on job, she was untrained (didn't even know what beers were available) and she... More

The minestrone and eggplant parmigiana were very good, as was the Cabernet wine. The service was friendly and effective.

We took a family group of 14 for a birthday dinner and we were able to have a separate area which was very nice. The servers were all excellent and we loved the food. Many different items were tried - calamari, caprese, veal, swordfish, chicken piccata, etc. - and there was not one negative comment. Would definitely return.

Had Spicy Frutti Di Mare and it was delicious! Others went for Veal and Risotto dishes - and were quite happy. Open dining room; fun little bar; and outside tables. A very nice place for dinner.

My absolute favorite restaurant in the area. Beautiful atmosphere, attentive staff, great wines and most importantly - great food. I have had many things on the menu. This time I ordered chicken gorgonzola. It was delicious. And I always upgrade my salad to gorgonzola cherry salad. We had a party of six and everyone enjoyed their meal. It the place... More
