Both of our entrees would tasty. Would have preferred to have the restaurants less dark as I could hardly see where to go when we walked in. Prices of meals were obscene. Pasta cost less to buy than say a piece of streak or lobster.

I was quite impressed with this place. Service was timely and friendly. I had the shrimp scampi and it was tops. It was a perfect place to take a customer and was quiet enough to have a nice conversation.

I went to the Flowood MS location and I was stunned at the horrible service. We were ignored, and watched numerous people being seated ahead of us. We had to wait for over an hour and a half for a table. Although we were sat in the waiting area in front of the hostess,she continued to ignore us and seat... More

This is one of the better places to get good food and good service in the area. Always clean and friendly. The food is very good and reasonably priced. Two can eat well for $22.00 or less. The lunch specials are very good. Evenings are usually tough to get a seat.

Ordered Veal Parmesan for take out. Veal was a bit tasteless and overpowered by the sauce. Parmesan cheese not melted. The restaurant is way too dark. Maybe they think this is romantic however it is just dangerous.

We ate here relatively early on a weeknight and the place was packed. They have early bird specials until 6:30pm. We took advantage of the early bird side salads which were a steal at $3. Both the green and Caesar salad were excellent and the portions were huge. 2 people could easily share one. The Tuscan steak was amazingly tender... More
